MOSCOW, January 11, 13:22 /ITAR-TASS/. Russia’s embassy in the Central African Republic (CAR) has been working like usually and has not considered evacuation of its staff, head of the embassy’s consular section Sergei Kramarenko told Itar-Tass on Saturday.
“The situation in the country is tense now, a day earlier the president and prime minister resigned,” he said. “France’s forces and African peacekeepers control the situation. A new government should be formed within two weeks.”
“The Russian embassy has been working like usually, we have not organised evacuation,” Kramarenko said.
The consular section has registered 42 Russian nationals living in that country.
“The Russian citizens have not been affected. They stay at home and the embassy has recommended to them certain limitations for travelling,” the consul said.
Evacuation of foreign nationals began from the Central African Republic on Saturday, mostly citizens of neighbouring countries.
Bloodsheds between religious groups continue in the Central African Republic for several months already. Lately, the situation has become critical.
In late 2013, France sent over to CAR over 1,500 military to restore the order in that country.
