Facing Ukrainian ire after India's UN move: Students
Even as the Indian go nment ramped up its evacuation efforts and the foreign secretary called the Ukrainian ambassador to emphasise India's concern for citizens trapped in the war zone, several medical students alleged that they were harassed at checkpoints on Ukraine's border with Poland. The students said they were kept in an almost hostage-like situation in the freezing cold and denied food, water, shelter or safe passage. They cmed that the border guards were abusing them because of India abstaining on a UNSC resolution ag inst the Russian invasion of Ukraine.
The students shared videos of soldiers firing warning shots and using force to disperse them. In another clip, a Ukrainian guard was seen shoving away an Indian girl who fell on his feet and begged him to allow her to make the border crossing. Several students said Ukrainian resi nts have also turned hostile ag inst them
The war in Ukraine has sent Indian students studying in various universities there on a headlong flight to safety, but thousands of them have been left stranded on the border with Poland. They fled by train, car or bus, while some walked many miles through the night to reach the fenced-off border crossings, joining lines of tens of thousands of people desperate to escape the war.
Alas, had the Go nment more concern about national interest than Elections.
one Mr.dfoxman has asked me whethet the students knew that Russia will invade Ukraine?

This type of banging Ukraine - showing them as vilns....
DONT SEND STUDENTS TO UKARAINE ANY MORE .DONT LET UKRANINAN PROSITTUES OERATE IN INDA ..EVEN NIGERIAN STUDENTS BEATEN UP BADLY
This action by Ukrainian Police Forces is undeniably heinous. But we need to remember that just like every country, every population has good, open minded people, they also have morally corrupt, narrow minded individuals. It is not unique to Ukraine,My point is we should not judge the Ukrainian populace according to the action of few extremist criminals.

You forgot Gujarat and Delhi riots
Pls don't disturb; our po iticians are busy in ions, hijab controversy. Also they are planning day/night to find out which other cities to be renamed. So students concern will be in the 2nd priority.

Did any one - po iticians, govt, burecrats whoever- asked them to go to UKRAINE? Isn't the repsonisbility of students and their parents to weigh the risks bwfore they go abroad.

Plight of Indian students in Ukraine -Dire Situation,Because of Reservations in India her General category students are forced to study abroad in countries like Ukraine , China , Nepal for Medicine , Engineering etc. courses,In India , for the General category ,very few seats are available for studying medicine , Engineering etc courses in Govt colleges.
The students should have left when the Russians ssed on the Ukrainian border. What did they think? That the Russians have come to look at the Ukraine border?,If the tax payer spends today for them, they can either return the money or work for two years in the rural areas of India for free. This way they can be grateful to the go nment as well as the tax paying people of India.
BRICS is the only way India will be safe and secure in future...
failed leadership of Ukraine....
Indian students should stop dreaming that they are VIPs at least they got better treatment in Ukraine if this was the case in India they would have got killed by our own people. Ukraine is a WAR ZONE now.
India has a illeterte PM AND IS ABUSED BY OTHER COUNTRIES
Govt again said do not panic again & again successful failures .
This shows their true colour ! India is 100 % supporting all weather friend Russia any time !
In a war zone behave and adapt with the situations. Dont expect Ukrainians or any Europeans will worry about Indians luxury and comfort at this point. Before war itself India gave enough warnings to leave the country, but our "brainy" students did refuse and continue there. Good luck.
My friend this war....remember that. Do not expect any better facilities. Po itics and media is playing it's dirty game. Be happy that u all are still alive
Idiots should know that USA, UK, Japan and many of their allies imposed sanctions on India after 1999 nuclear tests. Does that mean that they are our enemies now? We are building bullet train with Japan. We are also a part of quad whose other member countries imposed sanctions on us. Russia considers china a brother and India a friend. They supported china during 1962 and delayed delivery of Mig fighters. They only supported us during 1971 because china was closer to USA that time but all of it ... Read More
What can india do about this? Internationalization would lead to us and Europe condemning india . And why go to such a small and insignificant country for education? People in India even go to China
