“The situation at various border checkpoints is sensitive and the Embassy is working continously with our Embassies in our neighbouring countries for coordinated evacuation of our citizens. Embassy is finding it increasingly difficult to help the crossing of those Indian nationals who reach border checkpoints without prior intimation,” the statement read.
The Indian Embassy in Kyiv said staying in western cities of Ukraine with access of water, food, accommodations and basic amenities is “relatively safer and advisable compared to reaching border check points without being fully abreast of the situation”.
“All those currently in the Eastern sector are requested to continue to remain in their current places of residence until further instructions, maintain calm and stay indoors or in shelters as much as possinle with whatever food, water and amenities available and remain patient.
