According to Meenakshi Lekhi, the Minister of State for External Affairs, Ukraine is not yet willing to permit Indian students to return to the nation.

She also reaffirmed that the National Medical Commission (NMC) has developed a plan under which all Indian medical students who returned from China or the Ukraine and did not complete physical clinical training due to the extraordinary circumstances will be allowed to take the Foreign Medical Graduate Examination on or before June 30, 2022. (FMGE).
In order to be qualified to practise medicine in India, individuals who pass the FMGE must do the Compulsory Rotating Medical Internship (CRMI) for two years.
Although there will only be a temporary relaxation, NMC had earlier emphasised that it was necessary owing to the Covid epidemic and the hostilities between Ukraine and Russia.
"The relaxation will only be in effect for one year. Even though China is now permitting relatively few students to return, the students should nonetheless avoid enrolling in courses in these nations this year. How can a certificate of completion for an internship issued to some Chinese students online be accepted? The two-year internship will fill in any gaps in clinical training, according to a top official.
