India has completed a round of evacuations of its citizens who have become stranded in Ukraine. The first group of Indian students boarded a bus bound for the Ukraine-Romania border from Chernivtsi. The evacuation is being coordinated by the Indian embassies in Romania, Hungary, and Poland, according to the Indian Embassy in Kyiv. "Today afternoon more than 470 students will exit the Ukraine and enter Romania through the Porubne-Siret border. We are moving Indians located at the border to neighbouring countries for onward evacuation. Efforts are underway to relocate Indians coming from the hinterland," In a social media statement, the Indian Embassy in Ukraine stated. On the Poland-Ukraine border, preparations are also being prepared to allow Indian students to enter Poland and continue their journey to India. While evacuations have been carried out as a result of a phone conversation between Russian President Vladimir Putin and Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi, widespread military action is currently taking place across Ukraine, particularly in major cities such as Kyiv, Kharkiv, and others that have a large Indian population.
