In view of possible constraints to air traffic, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs warns Latvian nationals to depart from Ukraine at the earliest opportunity.
On 11 February, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs issued an announcement urging Latvian nationals to consider leaving Ukraine in the near term, given of a serious threat to security posed by Russia near the Ukrainian border and a credible threat of escalation of the situation.
We suggest that any accessible safe means of transportation be used – flights or land routes to or via EU/NATO member states.
Latvian nationals who cannot leave Ukraine due to individual circumstances are requested to register with the Consular Register at https://latvija.lv/lv/Epakalpojumi/EP139/Apraksts or apply to the Embassy of Latvia in Kyiv at https://www2.mfa.gov.lv/ukraine/vestnieciba, and follow information updates.
The Ministry of Foreign Affairs advises against travelling to Ukraine at the present time.
The Ministry of Foreign Affairs is also disseminating a warning by means of SMS to all mobile communication subscribers registered in Latvia who are currently staying in Ukraine.
The Embassy of Latvia in Ukraine is working to full extent and in an emergency mode.
