The Government of India issued their latest advisory on Thursday for Indian nationals stranded in Kharkiv. The brochure is an advisory of dos and don’ts.

The embassy of India in Ukraine has also uploaded a Google form on their account asking Indian students stranded in Kharkiv, excluding Pisochyn, to fill up details immediately.

Russia on 24 February had declared a ‘Special Operation’ on its neighbouring country, thereby putting the lives of millions of Ukrainian citizens and foreign students in Ukraine at risk.

The statement comes after Russian President Vladimir Putin told his French counterpart Emmanuel Macron that Russia’s operation in Ukraine would be completed at any cost.

Putin also said that any attempts by Kyiv to delay negotiations would result in Moscow adding more items to its list of demands.

The list published by the Indian government talks about potentially dangerous situations like: 

  • Aerial raids.
  • Attacks by aircraft/drones. 
  • Artillery Shelling, Missile attacks. 
  • Small Arms/Gunfire.
  • Grenade Explosions. 
  • Molotov Cocktails.

  • Exposure to freezing temperature. 
  • Psychological Trauma/feeling of Panic.

  • A face-to-face situation with armed fighters/military personnel.

The advisory also said that stranded nationals should learn basic Russian to communicate that they are from India. Its advisory suggested learning the following sentences.
