Indian authorities are looking for further education options for their students who have studied in Ukrainian universities, reports “Express K” with reference to Deccan Chronicle. According to Indian Foreign Minister Subramanyam Jaishankar, his office is in talks on the matter. with Kazakhstan, Poland, Hungary and Romania.
As noted by the Minister, the Indian side is demanding to admit students to the universities of these countries. First of all, the question concerns medical school students. Jaishankar also said that Hungary has already proposed future Indian doctors to complete their studies at Hungarian universities.
As for the course of the negotiations with the other countries mentioned, JAYSHANKAR did not provide any information. He only lamented that Ukrainian universities refused to provide education even in an online format.
“There was a university in Odessa that said we can only study online until February 25. Representatives of Kharkiv University – they called them from the embassy and even sent someone to a meeting – didn’t want to meet”, – said the Indian official.
Some Indian students, as the minister said, did not leave Ukraine with the outbreak of hostilities because they feared “it would interfere with their studies”. Now the young people are distraught.
