The foundation teamed up with Ukraine’s neighbouring countries and tried to figure out alternate routes to help the students reach a secure location along with the arrangement of transport for them. So far, Sonu Sood has helped over 300 students.

“They have teamed up with local Indian bodies in Poland and are sending taxis to take Indian students to the airport,” a source told the leading daily.

Sonu Sood revealed that after sending the taxis to the students, they were taken to the railway station in Kharkiv. From there, they travelled to a safer location in Lviv where buses were already arranged to ferry them to the Polish border.

A student posted a video on Twitter and said, “We were stuck in Kyiv and it was Sonu Sood sir and his team who helped us to get out. With their help, we are heading to Lviv which is a safer place and from there we will reach India.”
