One of the students who said he had been schooling in Ukraine for the past 5 years, thanked the government for the efforts to evacuate them from the crisis.
"I have studied for 5 years in Ukraine and this is quite unfortunate that we have to come home. But I want to first of all thank the almighty God, also thank the government of Ghana and the various ambassadors, thank the ministry. And also we assure parents that their children will be back home...," the student noted.
Government is still working around the clock to ensure that all Ghanaians in Ukraine are safely evacuated either to Ghana or to countries that can keep them safe.
Russia-Ukraine Crisis: First Batch Of Ghanaian Students Safely Evacuated To Romania
YEN.com.gh earlier reported that the first batch of Ghanaian students stranded in Ukraine following the Russian invasion which started days ago had been safely evacuated to neighbouring Romania.
This was seen by YEN.com.gh in a report on 3news.com.
The students, who were in Chernivtsi, were evacuated as part of arrangements made by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Regional Integration through Ghana’s Mission in Switzerland.
The Ministry on Friday night conceded that as a result of the difficulty in airlifting Ghanaian students due to a shutdown of Ukrainian airspace, arrangements were rather made for the evacuation to be by land through neighbouring Moldova, Belarus, Slovakia and Hungary.
