‘When Ukraine wins, come back. You have always been an integral part of our society. Together with you we will celebrate Diwali in Kharkiv city of Eastern Ukraine. Where Diwali has now become a local tradition. So when we win, come back. Till then pray for Ukraine and help Ukraine in whatever way possible. This emotional message is from Ukraine’s Foreign Minister Dmytro Kuleba.. for Indian students. For those students of India who were studying in Ukraine. But he had to return due to Russia Ukraine War.

Ukraine’s Foreign Minister Dmytro Kuleba has said these things in an interview with NDTV. He has sent a touching message to the Indian students who were forced to leave Ukraine due to the war.

What did the students go through in Ukraine?

Indian students had to go through horrific experiences before leaving the war-torn Ukraine. To avoid the attack of Russian missiles, they had to hide in bunkers. The Government of India launched a campaign to evacuate its citizens safely and brought back thousands of people. But a student from Karnataka died in the continuous bomb blasts.

Thousands of Indian students go to Ukraine to study medicine. Reason- MBBS course is cheaper there as compared to many other countries. But when the war between Russia and Ukraine started earlier this year, these students had to return. According to an estimate, around 18 thousand medical students left Ukraine and returned to India.

PM Modi’s voice can bring change: Dimitro

In conversation with NDTV, Dimitro Kuleba also spoke on many other issues. Like- India importing oil from Russia even in the midst of rising wave against Vladimir Putin in western countries.

He said that India is an important player in the global scenario. India’s Prime Minister Narendra Modi can bring change with his voice. Dimitro said, ‘We are waiting for the moment when Indian foreign policy will name this difficult situation not ‘war in Ukraine’, but ‘Russian aggression in Ukraine’.
