Foreign Ministry advises Egyptians to leave Eastern Ukraine

The Foreign Ministry on Thursday advised Egyptian citizens to leave Ukraine, where military hostilities between Ukrainian forces and pro-Russian separatists have escalated.

Assistant Foreign Minister for Consular Affairs Ali al-Ashry said the Egyptian embassy in Ukraine is following up on Egyptian citizens who are in the cities of eastern Ukraine, especially in Donetsk and Oganisk.
 
There are another 1,000 Egyptians in the east and south of Ukraine, most of whom are college students who have left the country already.
 
The Turkish Anadolu news agency had reported on Wednesday that Aziz Abdel Fattah Hussein, an Egyptian student at the Faculty of Medicine in Donetsk and another Jordanian national, were killed by an RPG in the clashes.
