According to TASS, among the evacuees are Afghan translators and consultants who helped the British military during the NATO mission in Afghanistan, their family members, and also holders of British citizenship.

It is noted that the export of Afghans from third countries cooperating with the United Kingdom will continue in the coming weeks. 

Earlier it was reported that US President Joe Biden approved the allocation of almost $ 1 billion from the federal budget of the country for the resettlement of Afghan refugees.
