Ukraine Crisis: India Asks Its Citizens To Leave


Indian Embassy in Ukraine asked its citizens, particularly students whose stay is not essential, to leave Kiev temporarily amid the ongoing tension between Russian and Ukraine.

The advisory issued by the Indian embassy  on Tuesday also advised the Indian nationals snot to travel in and around Ukraine and keep the Embassy informed about the status of their presence to enable the embassy to reach them where required.

“In view of the uncertainties of the current situation in Ukraine, Indian nationals in Ukraine, particularly students whose stay is not essential, may consider leaving temporarily. Indian nationals are also advised to avoid all non-essential travel to and within Ukraine,” the Indian Embassy in Ukraine said in an advisory.

“Indian nationals are requested to keep the Embassy informed about the status of their presence in Ukraine to enable the Embassy to reach them where required. The Embassy continues to function normally to provide all services to Indian nationals in Ukraine,” it further stated.

On January 26, the Indian embassy in Kyiv had asked its citizens residing in Ukraine to register themselves in a bid to disseminate information in a swift manner.

In the last few days, several countries are cutting back their diplomatic staff in Ukraine and have urged their citizens to leave the country.
