A group of 26 Greek citizens was evacuated from the port city of Odessa in Ukraine on Monday due to the security situation in the broader area, at the initiative of the Greek Consulate General, said the Greek foreign ministry.

The ministry-approved operation, codenamed 'Nostos 2', ensured the group reached Moldavia accompanied by Consul General Dimitris Dochtsis, where they were welcomed by Greek Ambassador to Romania Sophia Grammata.

The consul general returned to Odessa, noted the ministry, to continue the operation of the consulate there.
