Advisory for Indian Nationals in Ukraine particularly Indian Students in Donetsk and Lugansk regions to leave immediately

January 23, 2015

The Indian Embassy in Kyiv, Ukraine, had evacuated Indian nationals from Donetsk and Lugansk regions in the eastern Ukraine in June 2014. The Embassy has since issued regular advisories to advise Indian nationals, especially students, against returning to the region in view of continued hostilities. Despite these advisories, our Embassy had learnt that a handful of students had rejoined their educational institutions in Donetsk and Lugansk regions and had urged them directly whenever possible and through urgent advisories posted on the Mission’s website to leave these regions immediately.

As has been widely reported in the media, there has been an intensification of shelling and fighting in Donetsk and Lugansk regions over the past few days. In view of the deteriorating security situation Indian nationals, especially students, are strongly urged to leave Donetsk and Lugansk at once.

Indian nationals are also strongly advised against travelling to these areas.
