Two Ukrainian citizens, who were previously considered dead in Turkey's earthquake, have been rescued, Ukraine's Ambassador to the country Vasyl Bodnar reported on Feb. 7.

They were pulled out of the rubble in the Turkish province of Hatay, Bodnar said, without providing any details.

Earlier on the day, the Ukrainian Foreign Ministry's spokesman Oleh Nikolenko said that two Ukrainians died, four were injured, and 19 remain missing in the Feb. 6 earthquakes.

Over 5,000 people were killed and tens of thousands more injured in Turkey and Syria after two devastating earthquakes hit the region on Feb. 6. Hundreds of buildings have collapsed, with the death toll rising by the hour.

President Volodymyr Zelensky issued a decree on Feb. 7 ordering to send humanitarian aid to Turkey to help "overcome the consequences" of a devastating earthquake.
