"4-Legged Friend" Welcomed By Minister On Flight Out Of Ukraine

 New Delhi: As India evacuated hundreds of more students on Wednesday from war-hit Ukraine, Union Minister General VK Singh was seen welcoming a "four-legged friend" onboard one of the Air Force flights out of Poland.

He posted a video on Twitter of his encounter with the canine evacuee.

General Singh is one of the Union Ministers overseeing the evacuation of Indians via several countries neighbouring Ukraine and was at the Rzeszow Airport in Poland on Wednesday with a C-17 Globemaster aircraft.

In videos posted on social media, he was seen welcoming Indian students on board the flight.

As fighting intensified in Kharkiv, India on Wednesday asked its nationals to leave the second-largest Ukrainian city urgently to three nearby places "even on foot", while Russia promised to create "humanitarian corridors" for evacuation of Indians from the conflict zones.

Prime Minister Narendra Modi held another high-level meeting on Wednesday night on the Ukraine crisis as four union ministers sent to Ukraine's neighbouring countries coordinated the stepped-up rescue efforts with Indian Air Force and commercial planes.

Four C-17 Globemaster aircraft of the Indian Air Force, including the one from Poland, with approximately 800 evacuees from Ukraine are slated to land at the Hindon airbase on Thursday, sources told news agency PTI.
