WorldRussiaIndian students who fled Ukraine will be offered admission in Russian universities: Babushkin

Indian students who were forced to leave studies midway as they fled the Russia-Ukraine war crisis will be offered admission in Russian universities without them losing out on their earlier academic years, Roman Babushkin, Deputy Chief of Mission of the Russian Embassy in New Delhi, stated.

Babushkin added the students would be admitted to Russian universities where they can continue with their respective courses from where they were left off without losing out the early years of study.


The statement came in response to questions on the fate of the over 20,000 students who fled Ukraine after Russia called for a full-scale military operation on Ukraine in February this year.

Meanwhile, the Honorary Consul of the Russian Federation and Director of the Russian House in Thiruvanthapuram, Ratheesh C Nair, said that in cases wherein the students held scholarships, it was possible that the same would be accepted in Russian varsities.

However, he hinted that the fees being paid in Ukraine might not suffice in Russia.

He said the students in Kerala could get in touch with the Russian House here with their marksheets along with their other academic records, & the same would be sent to the Russian varsities, which would get in touch with the students & their parents.

On the conflict in Ukraine, Babushkin has made an allegation that the regime there was protecting neo-Nazis & that the war was an outcome of crossing of a “Lakshman Rekha” of Russia.

He further added that, “It was a ‘lakshman rekha’ for Russia, a red line of red lines which the West crossed.”


He claimed that neither Russia nor its war with Ukraine could be blamed for the food crisis in the world as the latter’s contribution of wheat in the global market was barely one per cent.
