Under a decision taken last week, due to the situation in Ukraine, the police are suspending until further notice the removal of foreigners to be returned to Ukraine.

Nor, until further notice, will foreigners be returned to any country from where they could be sent to Ukraine. 

No returns will take place since a foreigner returned to Ukraine could end up being subjected to the death penalty, torture, persecution or some other violation of human dignity. Nor could the safety of the police be ensured during returns either.
