On 2 March, a Tunisair plane from Romania arrived at Tunis-Carthage International Airport, carrying 230 Tunisian citizens who were evacuated from the Ukrainian-Romanian border. The Tunisian citizens were received by Mr Othman Al-Jarandi, Minister of Foreign Affairs, Immigration and Tunisians Abroad, and Mr Rabie Al-Majidi, Minister of Transport.
On the same day, the Tunisian military plane from Bologna landed at Tunis-Carthage airport, carrying 97 Tunisian citizens who were evacuated from the Ukrainian-Polish border. The Tunisian citizens were received by the Minister of Foreign Affairs, Immigration and Tunisians Abroad.
The army is mobilising:
As for the first flight of the evacuation operations, it was on 01 March 2022, on board a military plane, that the first group of 106 Tunisians in Ukraine left the Ukrainian territory through the Romanian border.
These evacuation operations prove to us that the Tunisian state is solid and capable of finding solutions even in the darkest situations. All we need now is the political will to change the situation.
