Bhubaneswar: All Indian Citizens in Ukraine have been advised to not move to any border posts without prior coordination with Government of India officials at the border posts (helpline numbers established) and the Emergency numbers of Embassy of India, Kyiv.
As per an advisory by the Embassy of India in, Kyiv, the situation at various border checkpoints is sensitive and the Embassy is working continuously with Indian Embassies in neighbouring countries for coordinated evacuation of citizens. The Embassy is finding it increasingly dificult to help the crossing of those Indian nationals who reach border checkpoints without prior intimation.
“Please note, staying in western cities of Ukraine with access of water, food, accommodation and basic amenities is relatively safer and advisable compared to reaching border check points without being fully abreast of the situation,” read the advisory.
The Embassy requested all those currently in the Eastern sector to continue to remain in their current places of residence until further instructions, maintain calm, and stay indoors or in shelters as much as possible, with whatever food, water and amenities available and remain patient. Avoid unnecessary movement, it added.
“We once again remind you to exercise caution at all times, be aware of your surroundings and the recent developments,” stated the Embassy.
