Thousands of Indian students and professionals stranded in Ukraine after the country’s airspace was closed following the invasion by Russian forces have urged the Indian government to intervene and evacuate them.

The Indian embassy in Ukraine issued an advisory stating that the “situation is highly uncertain” and advised Indians to maintain calm and remain safe.

“Dear Indians in Ukraine, the present situation in Ukraine is highly uncertain. Please maintain calm and remain safe wherever you are, be it in your homes, hostels, accommodations or in transit,” the advisory read.

The government plans to evacuate Indians from Ukraine through neighbouring nations, people aware of the matter said.
