The Department of Foreign Affairs is advising Irish citizens in Ukraine to consider leaving, if it’s safe to do so.

Around 70 Irish people are in the country – they’ve been told to shelter in a secure place.

A dedicated helpline has been set up for anyone who needs consular assistance.

The Department also says it remains in direct contact with the families who have a surrogacy arrangement in the country.
