15-20 Indians Still In Ukraine Who Want To Be Evacuated: Government
At least 15-20 Indians are in conflict-hit Ukraine and they are waiting to be evacuated, the government said today. It assured that evacuation flights under Operation Ganga “are not over”.
“We are providing all possible assistance to these people. Some people are still in Kherson. Operation Ganga is not over and we are helping all those who wish to be evacuated,” Foreign Ministry spokesperson Arindam Bagchi said in a media briefing.
When tensions in Ukraine increased, the Indian embassy there started a registration drive for Indians in January, and some 20,000 Indians – mostly students – had registered.
Foreign Minister S Jaishankar said more than half of the students were in universities in eastern Ukraine that borders Russia. This area has been the epicentre of the conflict so far.
