Nine Ukrainians who were in Syrian refugee camps return home – Office of President.

Nine Ukrainian citizens returned to Kyiv on December 31 after they were in camps for civilians in northeastern Syria.

"Two adults and seven small children have returned home," the press service of the President's Office said on Friday morning.

Head of the Security Service of Ukraine Ivan Bakanov, Defense Minister Andriy Taran and other government officials met them at the Boryspil international airport.

Thus, on Thursday, the evacuation stage of a complex operation to return Ukrainian citizens who were in Syrian refugee camps was actually completed. Their relatives in Ukraine applied to the authorities with a request for evacuation.

"In June 2019, a special working group was created, which included representatives of the Security Service of Ukraine. The task of this group was to organize the evacuation of our compatriots and their children. The counterintelligence of the SBU was involved in the development of the return plan," the press service said.
