Another batch of 65 Odia students, who had been stranded in war zone Kharkiv for over a week, were evacuated to safety on Friday, giving a reason to their worried parents back in Odisha to heave a sigh of relief.

These students’ long and anxious waiting for help finally came to an end on Friday after two buses evacuated them safely. As per the last reports, they were taken to the western borders of Ukraine and efforts were on to bring them back to India on Friday night. 

Worth mentioning, Union Ministers Hardeep Puri, Jyotiraditya Scindia, Kiren Rijiju and Gen V K Singh, appointed by the Central government, are overseeing the evacuation process in Hungary, Romania and Maldova, Slovakia and Poland respectively. 

Earlier in the day, a batch of 18 Odia students, who were stuck in war-hit Ukraine, landed at Biju Patnaik International Airport in Bhubaneswar following evacuation. The family union scenes unfolded at the airport were worth experienced. 

After seeing their children over a week after the war broke, the parents could not hold back their tears. So were the children. The elated parents, family members welcomed them with sweets and gave them hugs. 

The students as well as their parents thanked the Central and State governments for their efforts to get them evacuated. 

Mo Parivar informed that 199 Odia students have so far been evacuated from different cities of Ukraine while 150 more are still to be evacuated.
