Greece's Ministry of Foreign Affairs on Monday advised Greek citizens currently in Ukraine to "leave the country immediately."

Amidst escalating tensions between Russia and Ukraine, the Greek ministry also "strongly discourages all travel in any part of Ukraine's territory," according to a press release.

Greek citizens who have not already left the country are advised to immediately register their contact details with the Greek Embassy in Kiev, said the ministry.

The staff levels at the Greek Embassy in Kiev have been reduced to "essential personnel only," it added.

Greece, like many countries, is closely monitoring the situation. On Monday, Prime Minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis chaired a meeting of ministers and other officials on the developments in Ukraine, focusing on possible scenarios to ensure the security of Greece's natural gas supplies, according to an e-mailed press statement.
