ROSTOV-ON-DON, October 28 (Itar-Tass) - The government of Ukraine has thanked Russia for readiness to help protect citizens in conflict zones, Ukrainian Foreign Minister Leonid Kozhara said on Monday after a meeting of an interstate committee on international co-operation.
"In connection with events in the Middle East and North Africa, I would like to note the co-ordinated work of our consular services, particularly to protect citizens of the two states," Kozhara said, adding that an example of such co-operation was joint evacuation of Ukrainian and Russian citizens from Syria.
"We are grateful to Russia for assistance in solving such problems," the minister said.
