“The President’s decree on providing aid to Turkey has already been issued, and for its implementation, the State Emergency Service is sending up to a hundred rescuers. Ukrainian rescuers, under an optimistic scenario, may arrive in Turkey even today,” explained the Ukrainian Ambassador to Turkey.

These are Azerbaijan, Pakistan, Bulgaria, Romania, etc. In addition, Sweden, which holds the EU presidency, has also declared the highest level of emergency – EU authorities are helping Turkey cope with the consequences.
