Indian Nationals in Ukraine to move to western areas as curfew ends

Following the lifting of the curfew in Kyiv, Indian authorities encouraged Indian nationals in the Ukrainian capital to travel by train to the safer western area of the country.

The news: The development occurred just one day after the Indian embassy in Kyiv advised Indians not to go near railway terminals because of heavy fighting. In eastern Ukraine, the situation in Kharkiv and Sumy remained difficult as well.

What they said: “In Kyiv, the weekend curfew has been lifted. In a tweet, the Indian embassy said, “All students are encouraged to make their way to the railway station for onward journeys to the western portions.”

  • The embassy stated, “Ukraine Railways is putting special trains for evacuations.”
  • In social media posts, Indian nationals trapped in Kyiv, many of whom are students, stated they were having trouble getting around the city owing to a lack of cabs and public transportation.

What’s going on: The embassy issued an advice on Sunday requesting Indians in Kyiv, Kharkiv, Sumy, and other areas under curfew to report to the consulate. They were also told to limit their movements until the curfew was lifted and “significant civilian movement was resumed.”

  • As of last week, there were an estimated 15,000 Indians in Ukraine, with roughly 2,000 having left the nation as of Sunday, mostly through Hungary and Romania’s borders. Though a few hundred Indians were able to leave through a border crossing with Poland, many more suffered a traumatic journey and lengthy waits due to Ukrainian border guard restrictions.
  • Several Indian students posted on social media that they were having difficulty and being harassed near the Polish border.
  • People stranded on the Polish border will be relocated to the western Ukrainian city of Uzhhorod, which will serve as a staging site for people taking trains from neighbouring Chop town to Budapest, Hungary’s capital.
  • On Sunday, there were roughly 2,000 Indians in Kyiv, the capital, and thousands more in Kharkiv and Sumy, both in eastern Ukraine, and Odessa, in southern Ukraine.

On Sunday, India’s Foreign Secretary Harsh Shringla phoned Russia’s and Ukraine’s envoys to express India’s worries over the safety and security of its citizens and ask cooperation for their evacuation.
