He has also told that the government's three evacuation attempts to bring its citizens from Kabul have not been successful. The reason for this was that their citizens could not reach Kabul airport.
Yenin further said, "Last Sunday, our plane was hijacked by other people. On Tuesday, the plane practically stolen from us, it flew into Iran with an unidentified group of passengers onboard instead of airlifting Ukrainians. Our next three evacuation attempts were also not successful because our people could not get into the airport."
