Indian students to return from Ukraine amid growing crisis

In light of the growing tension of a Russian invasion of Ukraine, the Indian embassy in Kyiv has requested that Indian students, particularly those whose stay is not required, return to India. Those who plan to stay in Ukraine should keep in touch with the embassy.

The news: Secretary of State Antony Blinken announced on Monday that the US is transferring its Ukraine embassy operations from the capital Kyiv to the western city of Lviv, citing a “dramatic acceleration in the build-up of Russian military.”

  • The decision comes as US officials warned that Moscow was amassing more than 100,000 troops along Ukraine’s border and in Belarus, and that it could unleash a devastating strike at any time, including on Kyiv.
  • Russia, on the other hand, has refuted charges from the West that it is contemplating an invasion.

What they’re saying: The Biden Administration has repeatedly warned Russia of “grave consequences” if its forces invade Ukraine, and has pressed for a diplomatic settlement.

  • “We’re working hard to find a diplomatic solution to de-escalate the situation. As you are all aware, President Trump spoke with Russian President Vladimir Putin over the weekend, and we continue to engage with the Russian government in full coordination with our allies and partners,” White House Principal Deputy Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre told reporters.

The threat of invasion follows “failed” talks between Russia and the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO) and Western nations over Ukraine’s membership in the international organisation.
