The passengers included children under 18 years old, the elderly, the sick, stranded tourists, students who have finished their courses, and other disadvantaged cases.

The repatriation flight showed the great effort made by collectives and individuals at home and abroad as well as close coordination of the Vietnamese Embassy in Ukraine and relevant agencies of both nations.

It also demonstrated the right and consistent policy of the Party and Government towards Vietnamese citizens outside and inside the nation, which leaves no one left behind in the fight against the coronavirus pandemic.

So far, Viet Nam has organized 116 escue flights to repatriate 33,298 citizens stranded abroad due to COVID-19.

More flights are set to be arranged in the time ahead to repatriate Vietnamese citizens with disadvantaged circumstances, depending on their need and domestic quarantine capacity./.
