Notably, many Indian students and citizens were stranded in Ukraine. The embassy assured them of making necessary arrangements for their relocation to safer places.

All special flights to and from Ukraine were cancelled due to the closure of Ukrainian airspace.

More than 20,000 Indians, including students and others, are located in different parts of Ukraine. The authorities are trying to relocate them soon to other places by making alternative arrangements, as the issue is sensitive.
