The UK ambassador in Kiev has issued British nationals in Ukraine a “red” warning and told them to leave immediately. Ms Simmons said: “We have been reaching out to British nationals who have signed up for our alerts, and those that haven’t, to help them work out how to leave the country, which is now our advice since we changed our travel advice to red. “We’re still advising British nationals to leave the country as soon as they can.” (https://news.yahoo.com/uk-ambassador-kiev-melinda-simmons-100145220.html) Melinda Simmons said staff at the embassy in the Ukrainian capital were helping UK citizens flee the country as a Russian invasion looms.
