The safety of South Africa’s President Cyril Ramaphosa, who has had to travel to Ukraine without some of his security detail as they are stuck on a plane in Poland, has not been compromised, his spokesperson has said.

According to the Polish Border Guard, the South Africans did not have the correct paperwork for their weapons.

Spokesperson Vincent Magwenya said the row was “regrettable” and efforts were being made to ensure those on the aircraft could proceed “to cover at least the Russian leg” of the trip.

But in a tweet, he said the president had arrived safely by train, along with other heads of state from Africa that are part of the peace talks.
