Jamaican Students Set To Exit Ukraine

According to Jamaica’s Foreign Ministry, another 23 of the country’s students in Ukraine arrived safely in the western Ukraine city of L’viv, taking them closer to the Poland border.

The report noted that arrangements were being made for the students to be transported to Poland, a neighboring country.

Minister of Foreign Affairs & Foreign Trade Kamina Johnson Smith made the announcement at a media briefing.

She said that three of the students had declined to leave the train upon their arrival in L’viv, on the advice of their parents. 

Efforts are being made to get further information on that decision, she said. 

She added that the Jamaica Tourist Board’s office in Germany is working to facilitate the students’ travel back to Jamaica.

She also said that the government will absorb all the student’s expenses, including their trip back to Jamaica.
