MOSCOW, April 21. /TASS/. Yemen expects two Russian aircraft to arrive in the capital Sana’a on Wednesday morning to evacuate people willing to leave the country, Moscow’s embassy in Yemen has told TASS.
"If Saudi Arabia opens airspace, two Russian aircraft are expected to arrive in Sana’a to evacuate citizens," the Russian diplomatic mission in the country said on Tuesday.
More than 400 people, both the citizens of Russia, the United States and the former Soviet states, are expected to be evacuated, according to the embassy. "If everything is fine, the Russian aircraft will evacuate everyone," it said.
Since early April, Moscow has evacuated more than 1,000 citizens of Russia, the Commonwealth of Independent States (CIS) and other countries. Around 900 people were evacuated from Sana’a and the seaport city of Aden on April 2 and April 4 to an airbase outside Moscow.
On April 12, the Priazovye vessel of Russia’s Navy brought another 320 people, including 18 US citizens, from Aden to Djibouti. All the Russian citizens were flown from Djibouti to Moscow by two Il-62 aircraft on April 12-13.
