The Indian embassy in Ukraine has asked family members of embassy staff to return to India temporarily through any available commercial or charter flight out of Ukraine.
This comes after the recent advisory from the embassy to Indian students in Ukraine.
“In view of the continued high levels of tensions and uncertainties with respect to the situation in Ukraine, all Indian nationals whose stay is not deemed essential and all Indian students, are advised to leave Ukraine temporarily,” the Indian embassy tweeted.
“Indian students are advised to also get in touch with respective student contractors for updates on charter flights, and also continue to follow embassy Facebook, website, and Twitter for any update,” it added.
Meanwhile, Russian President Vladimir Putin and his US counterpart Joe Biden have agreed to meet on the condition that Moscow does not invade Ukraine. The announcement was made by France on Monday following frantic discussions to avoid an all-out war, reported news agency AFP.
