Russia ready to receive Indian medical students who left Ukraine: official

Indian students who returned from Ukraine from secondary school can now complete their education in Russia, Russian Consul General Oleg Avdeev said today.

Thousands of students pursuing medical courses in Ukraine had to postpone their medical education and return to India when the war between Russia and Ukraine started earlier this year. While some have returned to Ukraine now, others are still at a crossroads.

Russia has decided to open doors to these students, Russian Consul General Oleg Avdeev said. “Indian students who left Ukraine can continue their studies in Russia as the medical program is almost the same (as Ukraine). They know the language of the people as, in Ukraine, most of them they speak Russian. They are very welcome in Russia,” ANI news agency quoted Avdeev as saying.

He also added that there has been an upward trend in the number of international students applying for higher education programs in the country.

Meanwhile, students who returned from Ukraine during the war have even had to change their courses or streams to continue with their lives. Some of them had taken out large loans from banks and other financial lenders to pursue their medical program in Ukraine, but the war altered their lives in such a way that their debt is now more than they had bargained for. Many of the students are also unable to return to Ukraine or any other country due to a financial crisis.
