The Nigerian government had expressed desires to evacuate its citizens in Ukraine.

Nigerian embassies in Romania, Hungary, and Poland have received over 256 stranded Nigerians from Ukraine.

Geoffrey Onyeama, the Minister of Foreign Affairs, had said the Federal Government would commence the evacuation of stranded Nigerians from Ukraine from Wednesday.
