What does the situation in Ukraine mean for Dutch citizens?

The situation in Ukraine is very unsafe and Ukrainian airspace is closed. Violence is widespread. If you are in Ukraine, you are advised to leave the country if you can do so safely. If this is not possible, find a safe place to shelter. The authorities of the Netherlands are not evacuating people. Let your loved ones know you are safe. Always follow the instructions of the local authorities.
