Russia’s ambassador to Kabul Dmitry Zhirnov said that the ongoing situation between Russia and Ukraine has not affected Russian citizens based in Afghanistan and that the embassy is committed to protecting and defending the rights and interests of these people.

Speaking to the media, the Russian ambassador said that there is a limited number of Russian citizens living in Afghanistan and added that they are in constant contact with them and they have no issue.

Zhirnov further added that Ukraine’s issue has not impacted his citizen in Afghanistan at all.

“We are closely watching the situation in Afghanistan and will urgently act in case we see any prejudiced act towards Russian citizens because these are our policies. We are committed to strictly defending and protecting from the rights of Russians.” Ambassador said.

The ambassador also said that up to 600 Russian citizens were evacuated in the last three months of the past year after political and economic turmoil in Afghanistan but the situation is now better in the country.

Earlier, the embassy had defended the invasion of Ukraine and had called it a “legitimate military operation” that is conducted at the behest of the people of Donetsk and Luhansk.
