Around 1,100 Indian Students Currently In Ukraine: Centre In Lok Sabha

The majority of the 1,100 Indian students who were studying medicine in Ukraine have already left, according to information provided to the Lok Sabha on Friday by the government.
Meenakshi Lekhi, a minister of state for foreign affairs, responded to a query by stating that the Indian embassy in Kyiv had issued a warning on October 25 requesting that all Indian citizens quickly depart Ukraine by all feasible ways.

“While most of the Indian students pursuing medical education in Ukraine have returned to India since the conflict began, around 1100 Indian students are currently in Ukraine,” she said.

According to Ms. Lekhi, the mission has instructed all Indian nationals residing in Ukraine to “strictly” abide with the safety and security directives issued by the Ukrainian government and local authorities. The minister also cited the National Medical Commission’s (NMC) initiatives to assist Indian medical students whose studies in Ukraine were impacted by the crisis.

“The mission, in its advisory, had also provided information about available options to Indian citizens for crossing borders and it remains in touch with our nationals in Ukraine to provide help, when required,” she said.

According to Ms. Lekhi, the NMC created a plan in a public notice dated July 28, 2022, under which Indian students who were enrolled in their final year of an undergraduate medical programme at a foreign institution but had to leave and finished their studies with a certificate of course completion from their institute by June 2022 would be allowed to take the Foreign Medical Graduate (FMG) examination.
