Russia is set to discharge and facilitate the return of all Indians working in the Russian Army, news agency ANI reported on Tuesday, citing sources. Prime Minister Narendra Modi, who is on a visit to Russia, raised a concern pertaining to the matter with President Vladimir Putin.

Earlier this year, the Ministry of External Affairs said that several Indian nationals were duped to work in the Russian army. The ministry had said that it had strongly taken up the matter for the early discharge of such Indian nationals.

“Strong action has been initiated against agents who recruited them on false pretexts. We remain committed to the early release of our nationals serving as support staff with the Russian army and then eventually return home,” MEA spokesperson Randhir Jaiswal said at a press conference.

The ministry had also urged “all Indian nationals to exercise due caution and stay away from this conflict”. The CBI investigation into the matter had revealed that the agents heading the racket utilise social media channels such as YouTube to lure “gullible” youth to travel to Russia.
