The Ukraine Ministry of Foreign Affairs is calling on Russia to stop killing individuals in Kharkiv and Sumy to allow for evacuations to take place, saying that students are currently “hostages” of the Russian government.

International students from countries such as India, Pakistan, and China are currently unable to leave the cities because of “indiscriminate shelling and barbaric missile strikes by the Russian Armed Forces on residential areas and civilian infrastructure,” according to the Facebook post made on Wednesday.

The government agency said it would assist international students in relocating the students to safer areas if a ceasefire is arranged, but said that current evacuations are extremely difficult.

The Ukraine Ministry of Foreign Affairs is also calling on the governments of India, Pakistan, and China to demand that Russia allows evacuations to take place.
