The National Union of Ghana Students has appealed to the Government of Ghana to immediately take steps to evacuate Ghanaian Students from Ukraine and Russia.
NUGS appeal comes following the declaration of a state of emergency by the Ukrainian Parliament and Russia’s “annexation” of Eastern Provinces of Ukraine.
Meanwhile, Russian forces have launched a military assault on neighboring Ukraine, crossing its borders and bombing military targets near big cities.
In a pre-dawn TV statement Russian President Vladimir Putin said Russia did not plan to occupy Ukraine and demanded that its military lay down their arms.
Moments later, attacks were reported on Ukrainian military targets.
Ukraine said that “Putin has launched a full-scale invasion of Ukraine”.
Russian military vehicles were said to have breached the border in a number of places, in the north, south and east, including from Belarus.
