Sources: Greek Diplomat in Mariupol Continuing His Journey

ATHENS – The Consul General in Mariupol, Manolis Androulakis, is well and will leave shortly in order to continue his journey, according to diplomatic sources on Friday.

The same sources underlined that reports saying he was being held hostage “are the definition of lying”.

“The foreign ministry is in constant contact with him and, fortunately, everything is going well,” they pointed out.

On Thursday, Androulakis stayed near Uman. The operation to evacuate the consul general, as well as local staff of the OSCE mission and their family members, from Mariupol started on Tuesday, March 15, and has been heading west.

The operation is taking place in close coordination with the OSCE.


ATHENS - While accused by human rights groups of pushing back other refugees, Greece took in 7,759 from Ukraine who fled Russia’s invasion, 20 percent of them under the age of 18.
