Delhi: Medical students who returned from Ukraine after the war approached the Supreme Court. The Supreme Court was approached with the request that the central government should give instructions for further study. The Supreme Court issued a notice to the central government on the petition of the students. The court directed the government to reply within a week. External Affairs Minister S. Jayashankar had earlier said that Ukraine is willing to provide online study facilities for students who have returned after the Russia-Ukraine war. Jayashankar also stated that the health and education ministries are looking into the matter. The Foreign Minister also informed us that other ways are being examined in this regard. However, in the absence of any further action, the students approached the Supreme Court asking for a central intervention.The medical students who stopped their studies midway and returned home are worried. It is also not clear whether they can continue his studies in Ukraine. The next academic year will start in September in Ukraine.

Students are also faced with paying fees when the next academic year starts in September.

But this move also failed as Ukraine was unwilling to provide TC. There are 3,687 students from Kerala who are in an academic crisis. Ten crores have been allocated in the state budget for their affairs, but they have not been utilized.
