About 5,200 Vietnamese people from war areas in Ukraine have so far been evacuated, according to the ministry.

Currently, only a few Vietnamese people are still in Ukraine for their personal reasons, the ministry said.

Vietnamese representative agencies have kept a close watch on the situation in Ukraine, and actively coordinated with local authorities, the International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies (IFRC), and foreign representative agencies with many citizens in war zones in the European country to help Vietnamese citizens evacuate and return home safely.
