Earlier, the Indian Embassy in Ukraine called on citizens, especially students who do not require a stay, to leave Kiev temporarily.
In a recommendation issued on Tuesday, India also urged the public to keep informed of the status of their existence so that the embassy could contact them where needed.
Tensions over Ukraine have increased in recent months, and Russia and NATO have accused each other of gathering troops on the Russian-Ukrainian border.
The United States and Ukraine have accused Russia of planning an invasion. However, Moscow continues to deny such claims, claiming that no country intends to attack.
A White House spokesperson previously said the United States welcomed every country’s attempt to play a role in alleviating rising tensions between Russia and Ukraine, including India.
Russia’s recent military buildup of about 150,000 across the borders of the Donbas region in the east, Belarus in the north, and the Crimean Peninsula in the south, which began in the fall, has heightened tensions.
On Thursday, the U.S. Embassy in Kiev announced that a bombardment of Russia’s Stanitia Luhanska in Donbas’s Ukrainian government-controlled area struck a kindergarten, injuring two teachers and taking power from the village.
