Odisha students stranded amid Ukraine Russia war, Families Appeal Govt For Help

Bhubaneswar: Amid the Ukraine Russia war, students from different places across Odisha have been stranded in the war-affected country.

Reportedly, more than 1500 students from Odisha have been stuck in Ukraine and are anxiously waiting to be evacuated to their hometown. The worried family members have appealed to the Centre as well as the Odisha government to take necessary steps for help and the safe rescue of the students.

As per a report by Indian Express, the majority of Odisha students, including youths from Bhubaneswar located in Kharkiv and Kyiv’s educational centres, ran out of food and water. They were unable to locate food, withdraw cash, or communicate with their parents due to disruptions in banking, internet, and communication services.

Many MBBS students of Kharkiv National Medical University and Kyiv Medical University live in apartments there. Earlier on Thursday evening, many were shifted to bomb shelters and safe zones following the third advisory by the Indian Embassy.

Most of the Odisha students were to come back to India in the first week of March. However, with air spaces closed in Ukraine in wake of the Russian invasion, all the flights were cancelled.

It is to be noted that about 20 students from Bandhabahal area of Jharsuguda, a medical student of Mayurbhanj’s Karanjia area, Pankaj Kumar Mahanta, MBBS students of Jagatsinghpur district’s Ohala village Ashis Kumar Sahoo, Odia student Subhalaxmi Baral of Anandpur, Hitanshu Sekhar Muduli of Balasore, Ankit Patel of Bartankela village in Sundargarh, have been stuck in Ukraine.

Similarly, around 15 students from Dhenkanal, and from Balangir, Kandhamal, Sambalpur, Bargarh districts have also been stuck in the war-affected country.
