MANGALURU: While, as many as 37 students hailing from Karnataka have been safely evacuated from Ukraine, there are many more students who are waiting to reach home safely at the earliest.
Sakshi Sudhakar, a fourth-year medical student at Petro Mohyla Black Sea National Medical University, Mykolaiv, Ukraine, one of the 18 students from Dakshina Kannada in Ukraine said that she is stuck in Mykolaiv along with 300 other students. There are around 15 people from Karnataka, of which two are from Mangaluru, she said.
The attack has been going on for three days and there is limited food and water resources. We need to get out of the place, but there are no means of transportation to reach the borders. Sakshi, who hails from Bejai has released a video so that the embassy gets to know that the students are stuck there.
It is easier for people to say that we could have left early, but we had our reasons and there is nothing we could do about it. It is too late now and we request the embassy to take us to the border. “The situation is horrible. We are staying in bunkers which are not comfortable. Washrooms are an issue and there is limited food and water supply. Please help us out,” she appealed through a video.
There could be many more students who could be in worse conditions and there are many people stuck in the borders. Travelling right now is not safe. Daily essentials at grocery stores are going out of stock, she said.
Sakshi’s father Sudhakar Kudungu said, “We are in touch with the district administration and a Whatsapp group has been formed by the administration with all parents. We have also reached out to the MP and MLA for help and are tyring for help in every possible manner so that the students reach home safely. This incident has made by daughter stronger, “ he said.
