The government of India has made arrangements to evacuate Indians from the violence-ridden regions of Ukraine, especially Lugansk. Officials have arranged on Tuesday for 500 train tickets to evacuate Indian nationals, mainly students. On Wednesday, another 500 tickets will be made available to evacuate the rest of nationals.

Last week, India had released an advisory asking its nationals to leave Donetsk and Lugansk regions in eastern Ukraine, where reports are coming in of frequent violent clashes between pro-Russian separatists and government forces.

In the advisory, it also asked citizens in the other parts of eastern and southern Ukraine to remain vigilant about their personal safety and security.

Eastern Ukraine is witnessing a fierce escalation of violence between the two sides over the past few days.

The violence started after Russia annexed Crimea – an autonomous peninsula within Ukraine with a Russian ethnic majority – in March following which the pro-Russian rebels seized control of parts of eastern Ukraine and demanded its independence.
