Citizens of the United Kingdom, who are still in Ukraine, are advised to leave the country immediately, the UK Foreign Office said in a foreign travel advisory on April 22.

"The Russian invasion of Ukraine is ongoing, with attacks against a number of major cities," reads the advice.

"There is a real risk to life. We advise British nationals to leave Ukraine immediately if you judge it is safe to do so. Ukraine's airspace is closed."

In addition, the Office emphasizes that all British nationals who are still in Ukraine should register their presence in the country in order to receive the UK’s latest updates about the situation in Ukraine.
