The Indian embassy in Hungary said it is working with the Hungarian government to provide all possible assistance for facilitating the entry of Indians from Ukraine. According to reports, there are up to 20,000 Indian students in Ukraine. Many of them are medical students in Kyiv. India is trying to evacuate its citizens through land routes as Ukraine closed its airspace following the Russian attack. Hungary shares a border with Ukraine.

Mission is working with the Govt of Hungary to provide all possible assistance,” the Indian embassy in Hungary tweeted.
