On Tuesday morning local time, the last batch of 115 Chinese students who had been trapped in eastern Ukraine's Sumy region were evacuated by bus, and they are now heading toward safe areas. All Chinese nationals in Ukraine have been moved out of the country's danger zones, the Global Times learned from the Chinese Embassy. 

The Chinese Foreign Ministry and the Chinese Embassy in Ukraine issued two notices within two days, urging all fellow citizens in Ukraine to leave the country as soon as possible, given the escalating tensions and increasing factors of insecurity and uncertainty. 

They also reminded those who insisted on staying in Ukraine to pay close attention to their safety, and strengthen precautions and emergency preparations. The ministry and the embassy listed contacts for timely assistance in case of an emergency. 

Russia and Ukraine ended their third round of peace talks with no significant results, the Xinhua News Agency reported on Tuesday. 

"The discussions continued on political and military aspects. However, it remains difficult. It is too early to talk about something positive," Russian presidential aide Vladimir Medinsky, who is also the head of the Russian delegation, said after the talks.

Chinese State Councilor and Foreign Minister Wang Yi said that the Red Cross Society of China will provide a batch of emergency humanitarian supplies to Ukraine as soon as possible. He made the comment during a virtual press conference on the sidelines of the fifth session of the 13th National People's Congress in Beijing on Monday.

There were a total of 2,700 Chinese students studying in Ukraine, the embassy noted.
