Following Putin’s declaration of martial law, PH monitors Filipinos in Ukraine.
Following Russia’s declaration of martial law in four Ukrainian districts it claimed to have seized, the condition of the 25 Filipinos who can be found in Ukraine is closely monitored by the Philippine government.
Manila stated that should the remaining Filipinos ask for assistance in making an expedient return home, it stands ready to repatriate them.
The Department of Foreign Affairs (DFA) reported that “following Russia’s declaration of martial law in Ukrainian regions, our Philippine Embassy in Warsaw, Poland, and our Honorary Consulate General in Kyiv, Ukraine, are continuously monitoring the conditions and circumstances of Filipino nationals who are still in Ukraine.”
There are 25 Filipino nationals in Ukraine, most of whom live in Kyiv, according to the Philippine Embassy in Warsaw and the Honorary Consulate General in Kyiv; none are from the areas where martial law was enacted.
Since the Russian invasion of Ukraine in February 2022, the agency has deported around 400 of the more than 450 foreign Filipinos living there.
On Wednesday, Russian President Vladimir Putin put the so-called referendum regions of Kherson, Zaporizhzhia, Donetsk, and Luhansk under martial law.
The United Nations had deemed the referendums unconstitutional, claiming they did not serve as the foundation for changing the status of the Ukrainian territories.
On October 12, the Philippines joined 142 other nations in supporting a UN resolution denouncing Russia’s “attempted illegal annexation” of the four Ukrainian regions and rejecting the referendum’s results.
