Bhubaneswar: As Russia began its invasion of Ukraine, the Embassy of India in Kyiv has advised Indians in Ukraine to maintain calm and remain safe.
“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,” stated the Embassy.
It further advised that all those who are traveling to Kyiv, including those traveling from western parts of Kyiv, return to their respective cities temporarily, especially towards safer places along the western bordering countries.
Meanwhile, the Air India flight AI1947 that had gone to bring back Indians turned back to Delhi due to NOTAM (Notice to Air Missions) at Kyiv in Ukraine.
