Indian Students Leaving Ukraine Amid Conflict Will Be Offered Admission In Russian Varsities: Envoy

 

The envoy’s statement earlier on Sunday came in response to media queries on the fate of over 20,000 students, who fled Ukraine after Russia invaded that country in February this year.

New Delhi: Roman Babushkin, Deputy Chief of Mission of the Russian Embassy in New Delhi, has said the Indian students, who had to leave their studies midway as they fled the Russia-Ukraine conflict, will be offered admission in the Russian universities without them losing out on their previous academic years, news agency PTI reported. He said that the students would be admitted to the Russian universities where they can continue with their respective courses from where they were left off without losing out on the previous years of study.

The envoy’s statement earlier on Sunday came in response to media queries on the fate of over 20,000 students, who fled Ukraine after Russia invaded that country in February this year.

Commenting on the conflict in Ukraine, Babushkin alleged that the regime there was protecting neo-Nazis and that the war was a result of crossing of a “Lakshman Rekha” of Russia, according to the news agency.

“It was a ‘Lakshman Rekha’ for Russia, a red line of red lines which was crossed by the West," he said.

The envoy alleged that western nations like the United States too do not want the war to end in Ukraine as the defence companies from there were benefiting from the supply of weapons to Ukraine.

Babushkin also alleged that while the United States has invested billions in setting up and supporting the regime in Ukraine, Russia never believed in such things and left it to the people to decide who should govern them.

The envoy claimed that neither Russia nor its war with Ukraine can be blamed for the food crisis in the world as Kyiv’s contribution of wheat in the global market was barely one percent.

Meanwhile, Ratheesh C Nair, the Honorary Consul of the Russian Federation and Director of the Russian House in Thiruvananthapuram, said in cases wherein the students held scholarships, it was possible that the same would be accepted in the Russian varsities.

Nair, however, hinted that the fees being paid in Ukraine might not suffice in Russia.

The Honorary Consul of the Russian Federation and Director of the Russian House in Thiruvananthapuram said the students in Kerala can get in touch with the Russian House with their marksheets and other academic records.

Nair added that the same would be forwarded to the Russian varsities, which would get in touch with the students and their parents.
