The group was to take a Ryanair flight and land in the Kingdom late Monday, according to the ministry.  The Ministry said its staff in Poland is working to help Jordanians leave Ukraine, according to the Jordan News Agency, Petra.

The ministry called on Jordanians in Ukraine who decided not to leave the country to exercise the highest levels of caution and abide by the instructions of the local authorities.

In a statement, the ministry urged those who still have the opportunity to leave by means of safe transportation and safe routes to do so, taking into account the volatile security situation, which changes rapidly from one region to another.

The ministry also said that the Jordanian embassy staff in Ukraine’s neighboring countries are still on alert to provide any needed help.

Meanwhile, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Expatriates said Monday its staff at Warsaw Airport offered travel facilities to 12 Jordanians and their families fleeing the conflict in Ukraine, who boarded a commercial flight, which was expected to arrive in Amman Monday evening.

Since the start of the war in Ukraine, the ministry’s crisis cell has so far provided facilities to 1,281 Jordanian citizens and their families for their evacuation from Ukraine, and has taken all necessary measures and arrangements for 498 of them who were willing to return to Jordan, the ministry said in a press release.

It said the evacuations and travel arrangements were directly coordinated with the relevant Jordanian authorities and institutions and the embassies concerned.
