India has once again called on its citizens and students to leave Ukraine immediately amid the Ukraine crisis. The Indian Embassy in Kiev, the capital of Ukraine, has once again issued the advisory.

There have been suggestions that Indian students should return to their homeland rather than have online classes confirmed by universities.
