Indian Students Stranded In Ukraine


An official source told PTI that eight students (four each from Puducherry and Karaikal regions) are stranded in war-hit Ukraine.


The release said the CM spoke to both External Affairs Minister S Jaishankar and Indian Ambassador to Ukraine Partha Satpathy over phone and requested them to take steps immediately for the safe return of students from Puducherry.

The Chief Minister had also written to the Prime Minister seeking his intervention for the evacuation of affected students, it added. The official source said two of the eight students -- Maharaj and Vishalini -- were contacted by the CMO and the duo said they were safe and staying in a hostel.
