The Russian Ukrainian war has left several of our Indian students stranded. As per latest media reports, Prime Minister Narendra Modi spoke to Russian President Vladimir Putin yesterday and discussed the situation in the eastern Ukrainian city of Kharkiv, where over a thousand Indian students are stranded.
Kharkiv is virtually under Russian control and the girl students have already been sent on their way to Ukraine’s western border by train — a 20-hour journey — with the help of Russians.
Efforts are on to evacuate the boys as well.
A statement from the foreign ministry said,
PM Modi and Mr Putin reviewed the situation in Ukraine, especially in the city of Kharkiv where many Indian students are stuck. They discussed the “safe evacuation of the Indian nationals from the conflict areas.
In another live update shared by one of the twitter users, around 400 students of Kharkiv National Medical University, including her sister, were stuck in a bunker for almost a week. The twitter user who is also a journalist expressed how our boys ensured to send the girls first and waited for the next train.
Update: Sis and other girls got into a train and heading to Lviv. The boys sent the girls and decided to take the next train. A friend of hers tells me that they have been stranded and that Indians aren't being let into the train— Parvathi Bindu Benu (@ParBen24) March 2, 2022
Can someone help? I can share that boy's number
India has also abstained from voting against Russia at the United Nations General Assembly, where a resolution demanding that Russia stop military operations in Ukraine was passed with 141 votes in favour. There were 35 abstentions and five votes against it.
In a statement, India’s ambassador to UN TS Tirumurti said India has decided to abstain in view of the “totality of the evolving situation”. The statement also added,
We demand safe and uninterrupted passage for all Indian nationals, including our students, who are still stranded in Ukraine, particularly from Kharkiv and other cities in the conflict zones… this remains our foremost priority.
Here’s hoping for peace to prevail and all Indian students to return home safely.
