2024 Feb 25, 5:21,

 A lamp-lighting ceremony took place at the Pashupat area on Saturday evening to commemorate the Nepali citizens who lost their lives in the Russia-Ukraine war while serving the Russian military service.

Human rights activists, representatives from various political parties, religious leaders, and the grieving families came together for the event organized by the "Awareness Campaign for Victims' Families and for the Life Safety of Citizens."

During the event, Campaign coordinator Kritu Bhandari expressed deep concern over the Nepali citizens becoming prey to a war unrelated to Nepal and called for a serious assessment to address the situation.

Bhandari also urged the government to prioritize the identification of those killed in the war and the rescue of Nepali individuals who joined the Russian army, despite the government's disapproval.

The campaign advocates for the prompt rescue of Nepalis enrolled in the Russian army, the repatriation of bodies of those killed in the war, the search for individuals who have been out of contact for months, ensuring the safe return of those who have made contact, adopting a neutral stance in alignment with the country's non-alignment policy, and providing proper compensation to the bereaved families. The campaign has garnered attention from the Russian Embassy in Kathmandu, the United Nations, and various political parties.
