Morrison Urgently Appeals To Australian Citizens To Leave Ukraine

Australian Prime Minister Scott Morrison issued an urgent appeal on Monday for Australian citizens to leave Ukraine amid rising tensions with Russia.

After a meeting of the Government’s National Security Committee, the president has asked citizens to make the decision "no dilations". "We have been trying to contact Australians in Ukraine over the last few weeks to send them a very clear message: it is time to go. And now we’re stepping up that message"has indicated in a statement released through the Government website.

The committee meeting focused particularly on the situation in Ukraine and led Morrison to urge Russia to "continue to engage in discussions and conversations with other countries to find a solution to the problem".

The foreign ministers of the Quadrilateral Security Dialogue group, known as Quad and made up of Australia, India, the United States and Japan, are scheduled to meet throughout this week in the city of Melbourne. "It will be an opportunity for us to continue debating the problems of collective security"Morrison has nuanced.

Shortly before, the Australian ambassador to Ukraine, Bruce Edwards, in turn urged Australians to leave the country due to the risk of an armed conflict breaking out. However, Moscow continues to deny having any intention of invading Ukraine and has insisted that it does not seek to threaten anyone.
