The 28 crew members of Bangladeshi ship 'Banglar Samriddhi', who were stranded in war-torn Ukraine, arrived in Dhaka on Wednesday.

The 28 crew members of Bangladeshi ship 'Banglar Samriddhi', who were stranded in war-torn Ukraine, arrived in Dhaka on Wednesday.

A Turkish Airlines flight carrying the 28 from Romania landed at Hazrat Shahjalal International Airport around 12.15 pm, said an intelligence agency official.

The crew members arrived in Romanian capital Bucharest on March 6 from Ukraine through Moldova, said Bangladesh Ambassador to Romania, Daud Ali.

The Bangladesh Shipping Corporation (BSC) ship had been stranded at Olvia port in Ukraine since February 23, following Russia's invasion of its eastern European neighbour.

One of its crew members on board was killed in a rocket attack on the vessel.
