NEW DELHI: The Indian government announced on Tuesday that all 694 Indian students stranded in Sumy, Ukraine, have departed the city via a humanitarian corridor set up by the Ukrainian government.

Union Minister Hardeep Singh Puri also announced that the stranded Indian students in Sumy had been evacuated and were being transported to Poltava by buses. Puri further stated that he checked with the Ministry of External Affairs' control room last night and discovered that only 694 students remained in the city.

Arindam Bagchi, a spokesperson for the Ministry of External Affairs, said that while they were concerned, their objective to evacuate Indian students was accomplished. He tweeted, "Happy to tell that we were able to move out all Indian kids from Sumy." The Indian students were first taken to Poltava, where they boarded trains bound for western Ukraine before being evacuated out.

All Sumy students were also taken, said Union Minister Kiren Rijiju. It was really concerning, but all Indian students from Sumy were taken out. Our young children have been spared because to high-level involvement and strong team cooperation on the ground, he wrote in a tweet.
