The first batch of Ghanaian evacuees from Ukraine is set to arrive in Accra on Monday, February 28, 2022, aboard Qatar Airways.
According to Ms Shirley Ayorkor Botchwey, Minister of Foreign Affairs and Regional Integration, at a press briefing in Accra on Sunday, February 27, 2022, the 24 Ghanaians had already arrived in the Romanian capital, Bucharest and officers of the Ghana Mission there had procured tickets for them to leave for Accra on Monday.
However, it is said that the 24 Ghanaians are part of about 460 students who have managed to leave the beleaguered Ukraine to neighbouring countries such as Poland, Hungary, Romania, Slovenia and Czech Republic.
They are therefore expected to be followed by other 220 who have exited Ukraine and will be in Ghana within the week.
Meanwhile, Ms Shirley, has debunked claims that a train carrying some Ghanaian students out of Ukraine had been attacked.
