Ukraine’s capital Kyiv lanes have been converted into a war zone in the past week. In such a troublesome time, “Saathiya” has given shelter to Indians stuck in Ukraine and the locals. Pursuing safety, dozens of students, pregnant women, children, and homeless people have completed at the eatery.

“Many Ukrainian nationals came here as well, hoping they would be safe. But, unfortunately, the restaurant is like a bomb shelter as it is beneath the basement,” Mr. Dave quoted.

When Russia launched a military offensive on Thursday, Mr. Dave served chicken biryani to those seeking shelter at his eatery. But there have been apprehensions about the food stocks. He told the media that they could not refill on rations due to the restrictions on the action.
