Poles Stranded in Afghanistan Re

This was the first military operation to transport civilians from Afghanistan due to the deterioration of security there and the impossibility to leave the country after air traffic was suspended due to the coronavirus pandemic.
According to the Armed Forces Operational Command, which Polish military contingents abroad are subject to, the journalists, medics, contract employees and 10 Polish citizens were stranded in Afghanistan two months ago. They returned to Poland on May 4.
Before being flown to Poland aboard a CASA C-295M military transport plane from the 8th Transport Aviation Base, all of the evacuated persons underwent medical examinations.
