Minister of State for Road Transport and Highways and Civil Aviation VK Singh met 600 Indian students at Hotel Prezydenckie in Rzeszow, Poland. He said: “If your course is not completed … everyone I met in Poland said that they would take responsibility for the education of all students who were in Ukraine”
Many students were in the middle of their studies in Ukraine when the Russian-Ukrainian crisis escalated. However, Poland, with which the Indian government has friendly relations, is ready to welcome these students to complete their studies.
Taking to Twitter, the Union Minister said: “Poland and India share centuries of friendship and cordial relations which have brought our people together. I am happy to share with you that Polish universities will open their doors to our Ukrainian students so they can finish their studies. Jai Hind!”
Amid ongoing Russian military operations in Ukraine, VK Singh landed in Poland on Tuesday to coordinate and oversee the process of evacuating Indian nationals from Ukraine and urged Indians stranded there to follow guidelines issued by the Indian Embassy in Kyiv and the Ministry of External Affairs.
The prime minister had chaired two meetings on Monday to review ongoing efforts under Operation Ganga for the return of Indians from Ukraine amid Russia’s military operations. Another meeting was held on Sunday.
In addition, Prime Minister Modi will chair another high-level meeting on the Ukraine issue at 8:30 p.m. tonight. The Cabinet Committee on Security had met on February 24 following Russian military actions in Ukraine
