New Delhi: India is constantly trying to evacuate its citizens from war-torn Ukraine. Indian nationals are crossing Ukraine's land border to reach Romania, Poland, Hungary, Slovakia and Moldova. On February 26, the first flight carrying Indians stranded in the war-torn country from Bucharest to India arrived in India. Officials said around 2,500 Indians have been repatriated from 13 flights in the last 24 hours.
They said seven more flights are scheduled to run in the next 24 hours to bring back stranded Indian nationals from Hungary, Romania and Poland. There will be five flights from Budapest, one each from Rezzo in Poland and Suceava in Romania. "So far, 76 flights have brought back more than 15,920 Indians under Operation Ganga. Out of these 76 flights, 13 have returned to India in the last 24 hours."
The Indian Embassy in Hungary has posted an 'important announcement' on social media. It asked Indian students to report to the designated contact points to return to India. The Indian Embassy in Hungary tweeted, "Important information: The Indian Embassy is commencing the last phase of evacuation flights under Operation Ganga from today. Whatever students (other than the embassy) are living in the arrangements made by themselves. They are requested to reach the UT 90 Rakogi Hungary Centre in Budapest from 10 am to 12 noon."
