India issued an advisory asking its citizens to immediately leave the Donetsk and Lugansk regions in the eastern Ukraine. In view of the security situation in the Donetsk and Lugansk regions in the eastern Ukraine marked by frequent violent clashes, Indian citizens, particularly students, were strongly advised to leave these regions as soon as possible.
Indian citizens in the other parts of eastern and southern Ukraine should remain vigilant about their personal safety and security, and should avoid non-essential travel to the Ukraine for the time being.
Indians who decide to travel to the Ukraine should invariably check with the concerned Ukrainian Embassy about any new regulations, including those requiring visitors to hold a minimum amount of cash to meet expenses for the duration of their visit and restrictions on use of credit and debit cards.

In addition, Indians in Ukraine, especially students, are strongly advised to register themselves on the Embassy’s website and provide necessary contact details. This will facilitate the Embassy’s efforts in disseminating relevant information.
