On the other hand, a series of separate intense diplomatic contacts in Delhi, Kyiv and Moscow and round the clock ground action by three teams of Indian officials in Ukraine made it possible to evacuate the students from Sumy city safely. These were the three main components of India’s “difficult and complicated” mission to evacuate some 600 of its students from the war-torn Ukraine’s north-eastern city, according to officials.
Indian students were pulled out of Sumi on Tuesday after Russia and Ukraine took note of India’s request for a humanitarian corridor to prevent shelling and bombing and ensure safe passage for the students’ evacuation.
