Ukraine Crisis To Foreign Students.

   Since Ukraine goes into crisis and following the Russia annexation of Crimea, many foreign students who are in the crisis state have been in very hard condition. In Crimea today, some students from Maritime universities ,institutions , medical university, etc have been in a high tension about insecurity in the state. These has lead some to transfer from Crimea to some other states in Ukraine , eg  Odessa, Kherison, Poltalvo, etc. 

 Following the fight in eastern Ukraine, we advice all the foreign students in Lugansk and Donetsk to kindly relocate till everything got better. In case some without money to leave, please contact your embassy or agency to help you on that.
  While leaving the area, please do not go to train station to wait for train, try to go the exact time of train to avoid kidnapping. eg some Nigerians were kidnapped at Lugansk train station on there way out of the city and they were taken to there camp and was used as slave(clearing for them, washing, carrying heavy objects etc) and after some days they released some and maybe will later release others. Please be careful, we hope God will intervene on the crisis to stop soon.

Ukraine use to have some of her revenue from foreign students, but this year have been very poor tune up of foreign students , hopeful she will still gain up to 15% out of 100% from education board.

Please for information on Ukrainian Invitations or any help, contact us via email.
