The Indian Embassy in Kyiv yesterday issued an advisory to all Indian nationals, asking them to leave Ukraine temporarily.
"In view of continued high levels of tensions and uncertainties with respect to the situation in Ukraine, all Indian nationals whose stay is not deemed essential and all Indian students, are advised to leave Ukraine temporarily," the advisory said.
"Indian students are advised to get in touch with respective student contractors for updates on charter flights, and also continue to follow Embassy Facebook, website and Twitter for any updates," it added.
These are scheduled for February 22, 24 and 26. The flights will operate to and from Boryspil International Airport, Ukraine's largest airport.
The former Soviet state has been on alert fearing invasion from neighbouring Russia which has massed troops, tanks and attack helicopters along its border.
