100 Nigerians Besiege Embassy, Offer To Assist In Ukraine Battle

Over 100 young Nigerians have offered to assist Ukraine in its battle against Russia.

This comes after Ukraine made an offer to waive visa requirements for foreigners who are willing to help in its battle against Russian troops.

The Guardian reports that men who besieged the Ukraine Embassy in Abuja, put down their names in a register provided by the embassy.

The Second Secretary, Ukraine Embassy, Bohdan Soltys, reportedly confirmed the development, adding that no step had yet been taken to that effect.

A decree has already been authorised by  President Volodymyr Zelensky of Ukraine which would qualify foreigners to assist his country in the present crisis.

This decree results in a “temporary visa-free regime” for foreigners who are willing to help Ukraine in its defence.

Ukraine presently requires citizens from the European Union and the US to have visas of more than 90 days within a six-month period for visiting.

Effective immediately from 1 March, this visa-free regime will remain in effect as long as the martial law is in force in the country.

However, it does not extend to Russian nationals, referred to as “citizens of the aggressor state,” reported Business Insider.
