Ukraine Crisis : Denied Entrance to Poland & Slovakia says India Students Stuck

Many Indian nationals, are trapped in Ukraine because they are reportedly not being allowed through at the Polish and Slovakian borders and have nowhere to go in wake of the Russian invasion. 

The students have turned away at the Polish and Slovakian borders after travelling hundreds of kilometres from their respective institutions and standing in huge lines for hours, several students resorted to make video calls to media sources to inform Indian officials of their concerns.

Their desperate appeals seem to have reached some ears as well, as Kerala Chief Minister Pinarayi Vijayan wrote a letter to Prime Minister Narendra Modi, drawing his attention to the issue.

The Kerala Chief Minister also highlighted the matter during his meeting with External Affairs Minister S Jaishankar, who, according to the CMO, confirmed that there are Indian authorities at the borders who can deal with the situation of Indians being denied entry.

Nevertheless, one group of students, who had been held at the Slovakian border for several hours, told a TV channel via video chat that Indians were being turned away, while Ukrainian women and children were given preference.

The students, many of whom were females, said that the border police would not let them through since they had not received any notification from the Indian Embassy concerning permitting Indian nationals to pass.

Earlier, a student uploaded video of claiming that the Ukrainian army troops beating and blocking Indian students from crossing the Polish border.

Subsequently, several video messages of stranded Indian students complaining about being not allowed through at the Polish borders, went viral.
Meanwhile, Kerala Pradesh Congress Committee president and MP K Sudhakaran wrote to Jaishankar, seeking his attention to a request from around 250 students from the National Medical University in Odessa, Ukraine, for the Indian Mission’s assistance in obtaining permission to cross the Moldovan checkpoint that gives way for Romania in order to board an Air India evacuation flight.

“The students have arranged buses to reach the Moldovan border and I would appreciate it if you would kindly look into the matter with utmost priority,” Sudhakaran wrote in his letter.

Foreign Secretary Harsh Vardhan Shringla addressed a news conference, saying that he discussed the border issue with the Ukrainian Ambassador and learned that the Ukrainian Immigration officials have been alerted about the matter and are working on it.

“But you have to understand their preoccupations are elsewhere. It is a conflict zone. Please bear with us. We are working on it. We will do everything to get our people out. Our team is working flat out,” the secretary told reporters.

He further stated that he is aware that Indian people stranded in Ukraine are having difficulties, but the administration is doing all necessary to help them and to bring them as soon an possible.
