MOSCOW, December 25./ITAR-TASS/. Russia’s Foreign Ministry has recommended Russian citizens to refrain from trips to South Sudan until the situation is settled.
“We voice serious concern over reports from South Sudan and reports on the discontinuous armed clashes between incumbent President Salva Kiir and former vice-president Riek Machar,” the ministry said.
The conflict in South Sudan is growing: confrontation continues in five out of 10 states. According to official data, about 500 people were killed and over 700 people injured. Among victims are peacekeepers of the U.N. Mission in South Sudan. “No Russian citizens are reported,” the ministry said.
The U.N. Mission is doing its best to help foreigners to leave South Sudan. The authorities of Australia, Austria, Britain, Denmark, Germany, Canada, Malaysia, the United States and other countries urged the compatriots to leave the country. The staff of foreign embassies is being evacuated.
“The Russian Foreign Ministry recommends the citizens to refrain from trips to the country until the situation is settled. We urge all parties to cease military actions and resolve disputes exclusively by peaceful means,” the ministry said.
