The war that started between Russia and Ukraine on 24 February is now about to complete one and a half months. The situation in Ukraine is getting worse. All the countries of the world are condemning the pictures which came from the city of Bucha, located near Kyiv. Some countries are condemning Russia from the sanctions and some countries are condemning Russia in international forums. But India is keeping itself neutral in this matter till now. But this was the first time when India decided to condemn Russia on this issue.
But India has so far maintained a neutral stand in this matter. The Indian government has not condemned Russia in any of its statements so far. So at the same time, India kept its distance from voting on all the resolutions brought by the United Nations on this issue. But the statement of TS Tirumurti, India’s Permanent Representative to the United Nations in the matter of deaths in Ukraine’s Bucha, is being considered different from India’s stand. India has described the news from Boocha as “deeply disturbing” and demanded an independent probe by the United Nations.
An influential US Republican senator on Wednesday welcomed India’s condemnation of the Russian military’s killing of people in Ukraine’s Bucha, and called the country’s “toughening stance”. External Affairs Minister S Jaishankar also condemned the killings in Ukraine’s Bucha city in the Lok Sabha on Wednesday. He said, some MPs have raised the issue of Boocha and we are deeply saddened by the media reports. There were killings of people, which we condemn. This is a very serious matter and we support the demand for an independent inquiry. S Jaishankar said, we have chosen the path of peace. The Ukraine dispute has serious consequences for the global economy and our economy. S. Jaishankar said that we are against this fight and dialogue and diplomacy are the answer.
