M K Stalin, the Chief Minister of Tamil Nadu, has said that the state government will cover all costs associated with the return of students from the state who have been stuck in Ukraine, which has been under Russian attack since February 24.

According to an official announcement issued on Friday, 916 students and emigrants from the state who are currently stranded in the eastern European country have contacted government authorities at the district and state levels, as well as in New Delhi, to request evacuation.

"In light of these circumstances, Chief Minister M K Stalin has announced that the Tamil Nadu government will bear all travel expenditures associated with the students' return to the country," according to the announcement.
