Officials warned that anyone trying to flee into any other state will be responsible for consequences. The embassy is now shifting the remaining citizens to the Ukrainian city of Lviv.

The Pakistan embassy said the evacuated students were getting a two-week visa, while they could not travel any other country except their own.
