As Russia’s army is advancing from the borders of Ukraine, Foreign Minister S.K. Jaishankar discussed this with his Ukrainian counterpart. Foreign Ministry spokesman Arindam Bagchi said that the first batch of people returning from Ukraine has reached Romania via Suceva border and Indian authorities will make arrangements for their travel from there to Bucharest and further to India. Bagchi also shared a ‘visual’ of Indians crossing the Romania-Ukraine border on Twitter. Hours before the first batch departed from Ukraine, the Indian Embassy in Kiev had said that more than 470 students would leave from here and reach Romania via the Porubne-Siret border on Friday and would be taken to India from the neighboring country. Officials said that even in this difficult time, India has set up its camp offices in Liv and Chernivtsi in western Ukraine so that Indians can be sent to Hungary, Romania and Poland. He informed that India has deployed its teams at Jahoni border post in Hungary, Karakovic and Scheini-Medica land border in Poland, Wisne Nemeke in Slovak Republic and Suceva border in Romania to coordinate for the return of Indians from Ukraine. . Senior officials said that two Air India flights will operate on Saturday for Bucharest, the capital of Romania. More flights are likely to be added in the coming days.
