PETALING JAYA: All nine Malaysians together with their two dependents have been safely brought out of Kyiv, Ukraine, and are on the way back to Kuala Lumpur, says Datuk Seri Ismail Sabri Yaakob.

The Prime Minister said they were expected to arrive on Tuesday (March 1).

"On the basis of friendship and diplomatic policy, we also helped to bring out a Singaporean, together with our citizens to Poland.

"I appreciate the appreciation post from the Singapore High Commission in Kuala Lumpur in their official Facebook page.

"The Malaysian government always celebrates the close relationship between both countries.

"We face challenges as a family and work together as one Asean family," he said in a Facebook post on Monday (Feb 28).

On Sunday (Feb 27), the Singapore High Commission in Kuala Lumpur thanked Wisma Putra for helping to evacuate one of its citizens from Kyiv.

"We are very grateful to Wisma Putra for assisting one of our Singaporeans to evacuate from Kyiv amid difficult circumstances. "A friend in need is a friend indeed!" the Singapore High Commission posted on its official Facebook page.

On Sunday (Feb 27), Wisma Putra said the last group of Malaysians 'stranded' in Ukraine was scheduled to return home on Monday via a commercial flight.

According to the statement, the group would depart Warsaw after successfully leaving Kyiv by road on February 25 evening and entering Poland the following night.

The group's arrival at the Polish border was earlier assisted by two Malaysian embassy officials in the country.
