The Ministry of Civil Aviation announced on February 24 that Indians stuck in Ukraine can travel back to the country via Qatar. The Government of India has allowed passengers traveling from Ukraine to travel by transit under the India-Qatar bilateral air bubble arrangement.

Ukraine’s airspace was shut earlier today in the wake of a full-fledged Russian invasion. At present, there are 24,000 students from India stuck in Ukraine.

Several Indian students had turned up outside the Indian Embassy in Kyiv after the news broke. While several were accommodated in the Embassy premises itself, others were moved to safe premises organised nearby by the Embassy.
