Quai d’Orsay called on the French “whose presence is not necessary” in Russia to leave the country

As the Russian invasion of Ukraine continues for ten days, the State Department has issued a new alert regarding French nationals in Russia. In a new post published this Saturday, on his siteQuai d’Orsay urged French nationals, whose presence and that of their families are not considered essential in Russia, to leave the country as long as it is still possible, “given the increasing dearth of air links”.

“In the context created by Russia’s invasion of Ukraine, the application of international sanctions against this country and the tightening of criminal law, it is necessary to show increased vigilance,” the ministry states.

“Travel to or from Russia is severely hampered by the closure of the airspace between Russia and the member states of the European Union,” adds the Quai d’Orsay.

On Thursday, the ministry had raised the level of vigilance, “strongly” recommending its nationals, whose presence and that of their families are not in Russia, to leave the country.
