The crew of the Ukrainian passenger plane that is supposed to evacuate Ukrainians from Wuhan city will consist of 19 crew members. That includes six pilots, nine stewards, an engineer, two doctors and a nurse.

Interior Minister Arsen Avakov shared the details of the upcoming evacuation with the press, as deadly coronavirus continues to ravage China. There also will be a policeman, a military serviceman and a worker of the embassy. All of them will wear biological protection suits.

Every passenger that requires an evacuation by the Ukrainian plane will be obliged to sign a document, in which he/she agrees to be isolated for the quarantine after the landing; the document also demands that a person monitors his/her own health conditions. In case of refusal, the person will not be evacuated.
