The embassy of Azerbaijan issues some safety measures to compatriots living and temporarily staying in Ukraine.

According to the embassy statement, it was recommended to take into account the following due to the poor security conditions in Ukraine:

- avoid trips to areas of active hostilities;

- stay away from military units and defense industry enterprises, including other military facilities that may be potential targets;

- be careful while traveling around the country, choose the safest possible route;

- don't visit public places with a large crowd of people, unless there is a serious need for this;

- carry a valid identity document with you, given that there are checkpoints throughout the country;

- comply with the curfew and other safety requirements of the competent authorities;

- keep travel documents ready (Azerbaijani citizens without valid documents can contact the embassy);

- know the available shelters and in case of air raids go down to them, but if this is not possible, take cover on the lower floors of buildings, or stay away from windows and doors, and follow the official information about the situation;

- contact the embassy in case of emergency;

- keep in touch with activists of Azerbaijani diaspora organizations, wherever they are;

- Azerbaijani citizens who plan to visit Ukraine should postpone their trips until security conditions improve if there is no serious need for such trips.

Foreign Minister Jeyhun Bayramov made the remarks in an address to the UN Human Rights Council meeting on March 2.

"Ongoing humanitarian crisis requires urgent measures to help those affected. Azerbaijan provided humanitarian assistance and calls on both sides to dialogue," he said.

The minister expressed Azerbaijan's regret over the situation in Ukraine. Bayramov noted that civilians and civilian infrastructure must be protected, underlining that human rights must be constantly observed.

"Azerbaijan regrets that the ongoing situation in Ukraine leads to human casualties, especially among the civilian population," he said.
