New Delhi, Feb 24: Amid high tension due to the ongoing Russia-Ukraine war, the Indian Embassy in Kyiv, the capital city of Ukraine, on Thursday issued an advisory for the stranded Indians in Ukraine.
The advisory read, “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.”
It also urged the people who are travelling to Kyiv, including those travelling from Western parts of Kyiv to return to their respective cities temporarily, especially towards safer places along the western bordering countries.
The embassy also said that further advisories will be issued for any updates.
Worth mentioning, in the wake of Russia declaring war on Ukraine, the country has closed its airspace for civilian flights because of a ‘high risk’ to safety.
