Since the end of March, the Russian planes and ships have evacuated a few hundred people from Yemen, among whom there are the citizens of 20 countries, including Ukrainians, Belarusians and the US citizens.

For two weeks already, the coalition of nations headed by Saudi Arabia has been bombing the locations of Huthis, who seized the capital and much of the country, and forced Yemeni President Abd Rabbo Mansour Hadi to flee.

Last Sunday, Saudi Arabia rejected Iran` calls to stop the bombing of Yemen.

Last week, the Huthis reported about thousands of victims of the bombings in the country, including the deaths of 200 children and 40 women.
