Moscow (Russia), March 4 (ANI): 130 Russian buses are ready to evacuate Indian students and other foreigners from Ukraine’s Kharkiv and Sumy to Russia’s Belgorod Region, Russian National Defense Control Center Head Colonel General Mikhail Mizintsev announced on Thursday (3 March 2022).

But reports quoting stuck Indian students in the Indian media say they are many kilometers away from the Russian border and it is dangerous to go that far for these buses across the Russian border.

“A total of 130 comfortable buses are ready to depart to Kharkiv and Sumy from the Nekhoteyevka and Sudzha checkpoints in the Belgorod Region since 6 AM today in order to rescue Indian students and citizens of other foreign states,” he said. It is also reported that places for temporary accommodation and rest have been set up at the checkpoints. The refugees will be provided with hot meals; mobile clinics have also been set up there with a stockpile of medicine, reported Russian News Agency TASS.

“The evacuees will be then transported to the city of Belgorod for subsequent departure to their homeland by air, including via Russian military airplanes,” said General Mizintsev.

Tass adds: “It is also reported that places for temporary accommodation and rest have been set up at the checkpoints.”
