Over 2800 Moroccan students returned from war-stricken Ukraine
Moroccan flag carrier RAM has organized 16 flights to neighboring countries where Moroccan consular services assisted students who left the war zone.
Royal Air Maroc had planned in late February, special flights to Bratislava (Slovakia), Bucharest (Romania), Budapest (Hungary) and Warsaw (Poland).
Most Moroccan students in Ukraine were following medicine, pharmacy or dentistry studies and the government is mulling measures to ensure they continue their studies at Moroccan universities, spokesman for the government Mustapha Baitas said.
Morocco had moved its consular service from Kiev to Lviv where it was helping Moroccans leave the country.
So far 7000 Moroccans fled Ukraine as Morocco urged its citizens to leave the country since early February before the start of the war.
