Pimpri Chinchwad, 25th February 2022: Russian invasion of Ukraine has led thousands of Indian students who are enlisted in higher education institutions in a state of terror. Indian students who are stuck in Ukraine are pleading with officials to ensure their safe return to India. About 18,000 Indian students are studying in Ukraine and most of them are pursuing Medicine as a career.

Amidst all the conflict, Sakshi Satish Borate, a resident of Pimpri Chinchwad currently studying in Zaporizhzhya State Medical University Ukraine appealed to the officials of the Indian embassy for her safe return to India. Sakshi, through a video message, explained the current situation of students living in Ukraine due to the continuous attacks by Russia.

Sakshi says, “The conflict between Russia and Ukraine is directly affecting students and the residents. Indian students, stuck in Ukraine, are not getting any flights for their return. The previously booked flights were canceled which we had booked through the Indian Embassy”.

“Apart from this, ATM cards, Forex cards have stopped working. There are long queues outside of ATMs yet there is no sign of withdrawal of money. We are surviving without money”, said Sakshi.

She further added, “The groceries in the grocery store/convenient store and ATB markets are decreasing day-by-day”.

In the end, Sakshi requested the Indian Embassy for their safe return to their home country saying “We also want to come to our home. I request the Indian Embassy to do something for our safe return”.

Pimpri Chinchwad Municipal Commissioner Rajesh Patil has appealed to the students and citizens from the city stranded in Ukraine to contact the District Control Room at the Pune Collectorate.
