At least 145 people from Assam are still stranded in war-torn Ukraine, state government officials said on March 1.
A top official of the state government stated that the state government has so far received information about 160 people from Assam who were stranded in Ukraine and out of them 15 were already evacuated.
The official added that mostly they are students.
“The process of evacuating the remaining people is going on,” the official said.
The official further said that, the number may vary from time to time as the information was collated with parents and family members who approached their respective district officials.
The Assam government has already set up multiple helpdesks to facilitate the return of those stranded in war-torn Ukraine.
