In view of the heightened and evolving security situation in Ukraine and Russia, MFA reiterates its advice of 13 February 2022 to Singaporeans to defer all travel to Ukraine. In addition, MFA advises Singaporeans to defer all travel to Russia’s Krasnodar Territory and regions of Belgorod, Bryansk, Voronezh, Kursk, and Rostov, which have recently been placed under medium-response level, just one level below martial law. Local authorities in medium-response level regions have been accorded broader powers to, among others, temporarily resettle residents to safe areas; introduce a special regime of entry and exit into these territories and restrict freedom of movement within them; and restrict the movements of vehicles and inspect them.
Singaporeans are strongly advised to remain vigilant and monitor local news closely. They should take necessary precautions for their personal safety and eRegister with MFA immediately at https://eregister.mfa.gov.sg if they have not done so.
