New Delhi: Indian Embassy in Kiev on Tuesday asked the stranded nationals to leave the capital city using the ‘Humanitarian Corridor’ by any available means of transport.
The advisory issued by the Indian Embassy on Tuesday said that considering the security situation and that the next ‘Humanitarian Corridor’ is uncertain, therefore, they should move out of the city immediately.
“The Humanitarian Corridor for evacuation of stranded people has been announced in various parts of Ukraine from 10.00 hrs on March 8, 2022. All stranded Indian nationals are urged to make use of this opportunity and evacuate using trains/vehicles or any other available means of transport giving due consideration to safety,” the advisory read.
