The Department of Foreign Affairs (DFA) on Tuesday announced it had assisted 370 Filipinos since Russia started invading Ukraine.
Foreign Affairs Undersecretary Sarah Arriola said in a bulletin that 286 Filipinos had been repatriated as of Tuesday.
Arriola added that 84 individuals had been evacuated from or have exited Ukraine, while 24 others were expected to arrive today.
The Philippines has ordered the mandatory evacuation of all Filipinos in Russia amid Russia’s invasion.
The DFA has placed Ukraine under Alert Level 4, which necessitates mandatory evacuation shouldered by the government.
Malacañang earlier called for “an immediate end” to the Russia-Ukraine war, which has killed at least 12,000 individuals according to the Ukrainian government. John Ezekiel J. Hirro
