“A total of 138 citizens were saved, and all evacuees are safe in Egypt,” the Main Directorate of Intelligence in Ukraine’s defense ministry said on its official channel on Telegram.

This included 35 women and 12 children, according to Ukrainian authorities who organized the operation.

Ukraine said its own citizens, mostly people working in the aviation industry and their families, were “provided with visa and document support and expect a quick return to the Motherland.”

Citizens from Georgia and Peru were also among the rescued.
