"In addition, the Ministry of Defence has organized the return flights of Russian citizens. Those people who have expressed a desire to travel to the territory of Russia are provided with vehicles and are naturally delivered to the departure airports and transported to the territory of Russia," the head of the military department said. - In just three days, 1,719 people were transported. We continue this work."
