India expresses concern over Ukraine’s situation

India expresses concern over Ukraine’s situation

India has expressed grave concern about the deteriorating situation in Ukraine and reiterated its call for an immediate cessation of violence and an end to hostilities, stating that all differences can only be bridged through honest, sincere, and sustained dialogue.

The news: T.S. Tirumurti, India’s Permanent Representative to the United Nations, told a rare emergency special session of the United Nations General Assembly on Ukraine convened on Monday that New Delhi is doing everything possible to expedite the evacuation of Indian nationals still stranded in Ukraine.

  • He further said, “India is deeply concerned about the deterioration of the situation in Ukraine. We reiterate our call for an immediate cessation of violence and the cessation of hostilities, my government is convinced that there is no other option but to return to the path of diplomacy.” 

What’s going on: On Monday, ambassadors from dozens of countries backed a proposal demanding that Russia halt its attack on Ukraine, as the United Nations General Assembly held a rare emergency session amid a day of frantic and sometimes fractious diplomacy surrounding the five-day-old war.

  • As global concern grew, both of the UN’s major bodies—the 193-nation assembly and the smaller, more powerful Security Council—took the unusual step of holding simultaneous, hastily scheduled meetings on the war.
  • The UN Human Rights Council voted in Geneva to hold its own emergency session.
  • Tension pervaded the diplomatic discourse: the Security Council meeting began with the announcement that the United States was expelling 12 Russian UN diplomats accused of spying.

What are they saying: During the assembly first emergency meeting, Ukrainian Ambassador Sergiy Kyslytsya said, “If Ukraine does not survive, international peace will perish. Believe nothing. We should not be surprised if democracy fails next if Ukraine does not survive.”

  • Meanwhile, Russian and Ukrainian officials met near the Belarusian border, agreeing only to continue talking. “The guns are talking now,” UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres told the assembly. “But the path of dialogue must always remain open. We need peace right now.”
  • Russian Ambassador Vassily Nebenzia reiterated his country’s claims that a “special military operation” to defend two breakaway areas in eastern Ukraine is being misrepresented.
