The Nigerian Embassy in Ukraine has issued a travel advisory to Nigerians in Ukraine to be calm but be very vigilant and responsible for their security and safety as Russia invades Ukraine.

The advisory was issued a few hours after Russian President, Vladimir Putin ordered Russian troops to invade Ukraine on Thursday.

In the advisory dated February 24, 2020, the embassy urged Nigerians in Ukraine to,

“…Remain calm but be very vigilant and be responsible for their security and safety.”

The advisory also enjoined Nigerians schooling in Ukraine who may be looking into seeking temporary relocation to seek proper clearance and guarantee from their respective institutions, authorities/agents.

“In case of students seeking such temporary relocation, they are enjoined to seek proper clearance and guarantee from their respective institutions, authorities/agents on the way forward in respect to their studies during this period and/or thereafter.”

The embassy also mentioned that Nigerians in Ukraine, who consider the situation as emotionally disturbing and wishes to temporarily relocate to a safe place should work on private arrangements for such.

Those in the above category were, however, enjoined to ensure that they do all the needful to validate all their resident documents for ease of return to the country when the coast is clear.

The embassy disclosed that it will remain open to performing its consular duties and responsibilities to Nigerians who deem it appropriate to remain in Ukraine.

“For those who still consider it appropriate to remain in the country, be assured that the embassy remains open for its consular duties and responsibilities at all times. it will always avail you of updates when necessary.”
