Indian citizens stranded in Ukraine can reach out to the embassy for evacuation. The Indian government has issued helpline numbers for the same.
This was announced after Russian President Vladimir Putin on Thursday announced a military operation in Ukraine.
In an advisory to all the Indian nationals in Ukraine, the embassy said: “This is to inform all Indian nationals in Ukraine that since the Ukrainian airspace has been closed the schedule for special flights stands cancelled.”
The embassy further stated that alternative arrangements were being made for the evacuation of the Indian nationals.
The embassy will convey information as soon as such arrangements are finalized so that the Indian nationals can relocate to the western part of the country, said an official.
“Please carry your passports and necessary documents on your person at all times. You are advised to follow Embassy website and social media (Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram) posts for updates on this regard.”
The Embassy issued helpline numbers which are +38 0997300483, +38 0997300428, +38 0933980327, +38 0635917881 and +38 0935046170.
India had started planes to evacuate citizens living in Ukraine since the war-like situation emerged. A special flight landed in Delhi earlier carrying 182 Indians.
