It is suspected that amongst 2-3 that have gone missing on the border as they tried to cut barbed wires to escape from Ukraine. Some of them are suspected to be Nepalese, informed the President of the Non-Resident Nepali Association (NRNA).

Meanwhile, a Nepali who entered Warsaw, through the Poland and Ukraine border told NepalNews that his problem is now getting the necessary documents for employment. He also informed that the numbers of Nepalese coming to Polandvis continuous. He also added how the help of NRNA helped him find accommodation and food.

The Nepalese Public Relations Committee (NPRC) Poland is operating a Ukraine-Poland help desk to assist Nepalese entering Poland through the Medyka border to come to the humanitarian aid camp provided by the Polish government for protection. The Government has also arranged transportation for them to travel to different cities in Poland.

The Nepalese who fled has been informed of hostels that have been arranged for accommodation as well as other counseling services including language, operation, coordination, and management.

The Nepalese who reached Medyka from Ukraine to Poland were taken by bus to the capital Warsaw on Tuesday afternoon by Bhim Pariyar, President of Nepali Public Relations Committee Poland and his team. Pariyar's team reached the border of Poland on the third day to help the Nepalese. They have been waiting in line for a long time to enter Poland only after the necessary process. In the early days, Nepalese were not allowed to enter.

Many Nepalese from Ukraine have reached neighboring countries like Poland as well as Hungary, Slovak Republic, Romania, etc. The highest pressure of incoming refugees is on the border of Poland.

However, as the conflict in Ukraine continues to escalate, the Nepalese government needs to take a diplomatic initiative to repatriate the Nepalese from these nations as soon as possible.

The Nepalese Embassy in Germany, which currently has jurisdiction over Ukraine, and the Non-Resident Nepali Association (NRNA) are actively involved in the rescue of Nepalese living in Ukraine by forming a steering committee.

While the Nepalese living in Ukraine were going to the neighboring countries, President Kumar Pant himself had gone to Ukraine and the Polish border to understand the situation. It is estimated that there are more than 1000 Nepalese in Ukraine, said Pant. According to official data, the number of Nepalese is much less than that. According to him, most of the Nepalese who came there did not want to come in contact with the Embassy in Germany and NRNA. He said that they did not want to be contacted as they had come to Ukraine after spending a lot of money with the aim of coming to Europe.
