MOSCOW, April 22. /TASS/. Two Russian planes evacuating 400 Russian and foreign nationals from Yemen's capital Sana'a have departed to Moscow, the Russian embassy in Yemen said on Wednesday.
"Both planes are fully loaded," the embassy spokesman said. "Everything runs to plan."
He said the planes were expected to land in the Russian capital around 11 p.m. Moscow time (8 p.m. GMT).
Since early April, Moscow has evacuated more than 1,000 citizens of Russia, the Commonwealth of Independent States (CIS) and other countries, including the United States. Around 900 people were evacuated from Sana’a and the seaport city of Aden on April 2 and April 4 by six flights to the Chkalovsky air base, 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.
