Yesterday Ministry of Foreign Affairs received request from a student studying in the Lugansk State Medical University in Ukraine seeking help for repatriation. The Ministry then requested Bangladesh Embassy in Moscow to contact the students in Ukraine. Accordingly, the Embassy contacted Florinda Francis, a fifth year Bangladeshi medical student of the university and the President of Bangladeshi Student Association.
Ms. Francis informed that the existing situation of Lugansk was peaceful and was not affecting their personals and education life. She also informed that there were foreign students from sixty three countries and they were continuing their studies. She also conveyed that the request for help was unnecessary and was intended to create panic.
The Bangladesh Embassy in Moscow also contacted Bolgov Dmitry Michailovich, Dean of Foreign Students of the University and requested him to provide all possible help and cooperation to the Bangladeshi students should it require. The Dean assured the Embassy that the University would render all support to Bangladeshi students if needed.
Bangladesh Embassy in Moscow is in touch with the students as well as the university authorities and is ready to extend all assistance to our students in Lugansk State Medical University as and when required.
