A Jordanian student in the Ukrainian city of Sumy appealed to find a safe route for Jordanian students in the area, in light of reports of a “critical” situation in the city near the Russian border during the Russian war in Ukraine 9 days ago.

Ali Zubaidi, a medical student who is stuck in the city of Sumy, told “The Kingdom”, on Friday, that the current situation in the city is “very dangerous,” adding: “We are subjected to sudden bombing and missile attacks … and there is a spread of armed groups and gangs in the city of Sumy, which poses a danger.” Big…”.

Al-Zubaidi indicated that there is “permanent” contact with the Jordanian community, and called on the Ministry of Foreign Affairs to find solutions and a safe route for students in the city of Sumy to the west.

On Friday, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Expatriate Affairs announced facilitating the procedures for crossing 718 Jordanians and their families at the border crossings between Ukraine and border countries.

On Friday, the Ukrainian local authorities stated that the situation had become “critical” in Sumy, near the Russian border.

“The city of Sumy is surrounded from all its exits by the Russian forces, and no one can get out of the city, and if someone tries to leave, he will pay with his life for that.”

Al-Zubaidi explained that the Jordanian students were unable to leave before the war and after Jordanian warnings of the seriousness of the situation, due to the university’s refusal to allow students to leave Ukraine and the threat of expulsion from it.

Al-Zubaidi spoke of the presence of 150 Jordanians in Sumy, adding: “No one of the students left.”

The Ministry of Foreign Affairs referred to “securing Jordanian citizens with all forms of assistance and support, providing the necessary and necessary services for them, ensuring their safety and conditions, and facilitating their return to Jordan.”

The ministry said that the crisis cell in the ministry’s operations center unit, in coordination with various Jordanian authorities and institutions, continues its work around the clock, by maintaining contacts with Jordanians inside Ukraine, receiving their contacts, reassuring them, and directing them to ensure their security and safety, as part of the ministry’s efforts and follow-up on the conditions of Jordanians in Ukraine.

Al-Zubaidi pointed out that there is a curfew in the city of Sumy from six in the evening until seven in the morning, and said that “the greatest fear currently is from the Ukrainian armed groups … and in general the students do not go out except to buy basic food commodities.”

On Thursday, Kyiv and Moscow agreed to establish “humanitarian corridors” to evacuate civilians from areas where fighting is taking place, and the Ukrainian president’s adviser, a member of the negotiating delegation, Mikhailo Podolak, said on Twitter, “The second round of talks is over. Unfortunately, Ukraine has not yet achieved the results it needs. There are only decisions about organizing humanitarian corridors.”
