India’s embassy in conflict-hit Ukraine in a third advisory today asked Indian citizens living in the east European nation to go to bomb shelters if they hear air raid sirens in the capital city Kyiv.
In a tweet, the embassy added a link to the Kyiv city administration’s bomb shelter locations as Russian forces continue to advance in eastern Ukraine’s breakaway areas in Donbas.
Air raid sirens were heard in Kyiv today. Russia has said it is using precision munitions against military targets in Ukraine.
“As you are aware, Ukraine is under martial law, which has made movement difficult. For those students who are stranded without a place of stay in Kyiv, Mission is in touch with establishments to put them up,” India’s embassy tweeted.
“We are aware that certain places are hearing air sirens/bomb warnings. In case you are faced with such a situation, Google Maps has a list of nearby bomb shelters, many of which are located in underground metros. For those in Kyiv, the official link from KMDA Kyiv city administration is here,” the embassy said.

Don’t leave your homes unless necessary and carry all documents at all times, the embassy said.
