India has decided to shift its diplomatic mission from Ukraine to neighbouring Poland, the Ministry of External Affairs (MEA) said.  Since the war escalated in Ukraine, the Indian Embassy was shifted to Lviv from the capital Kyiv, the spokesperson of MEA informed The New Indian. This development occurred soon after Prime Minister Narendra Modi reviewed India’s security on the outbreak of  the war in Ukraine. 
 
“In view of the rapidly deteriorating security situation in Ukraine, including attacks in the western parts of the country, it has been decided that the Indian Embassy in Ukraine will be temporarily relocated in Poland,”  the official spokesperson of the MEA said.
 
The situation will be reassessed in the light of further developments, MEA said on relocating the embassy temporarily, MEA added.
 
Ukriane’s Yavoriv training base, near Lviv was attacked on Sunday, killing 35 people . Poland facilitated India to rescue its students, provided them  space  and flights  to take students to India. In an exclusive interview, Ambassador Adam Burakowski of Poland affirmed Poland’s support to India’s Operation Ganga.  In a C-17 Globemaster of the Indian Air Force, Minister of State for Civil Aviation, General (retd) VK Singh, brought back around 200 stranded Indians from Poland  to  Hindon Air Base in Ghaziabad near Delhi on Monday
 

Ambassador Partha Satpathy is presently India’s Ambassador to Ukraine. Nagma Mohamed Mallick is presently India’s Ambassador to Poland. Several countries from India’s neighbourhood have no embassy in Ukraine. It created hurdles in  bringing back their nationals to the country. The Ambassador of Bangladesh in Poland told the The New Indian that her appeal drew a positive response from India to rescue Bangladeshi nationals from the conflict zone in Ukraine.
