Some Ghanaian students studying in Luhansk, Ukraine are currently stranded following the on-going clashes between the pro- Russian separatist and the Ukrainian Military forces.
The Russian Separatists on Monday took over two Ukrainian military bases in Luhansk, Eastern Ukraine after days of combat in the Soviet Nation.
Eight civilians are alleged to have died as a result of the raid.
Speaking to Citi News, some Ghanaian students in the Luhansk area say they are not safe anymore noting that “the city is under siege, the Ukrainian army is firing from air, land everywhere. We want our government to get us home, we are struggling.”
According to them, all attempts to reach the Ghana Mission has not yielded any result “we call them, they refuse to answer the call. We have sent them the names of all the Ghanaian students here.”
They further added that “all routes are blocked, the road to Kiev is blocked, the only free route is by train and that has been booked by the Indian embassy for its students. It is difficult to get access to Kiev.”
The Ukrainian conflict began in February 2014 after a series of violent events in the capital of Kiev, culminated with the ousting of the then President of Ukraine Viktor Yanukovych.
The Russian President, Vladmir Putin and Ukrainian President, Petro Poroshenko met on Monday have called for a quick end to the ongoing  bloodshed in eastern Ukraine.
