  • Igor Polikha, the Ukrainian ambassador to India, claimed that Prime Minister Modi is one of the few world leaders who President Putin listens to, and that New Delhi may use its proximity to Moscow to exert control over the situation. 
  • “Prime Minister Narendra Modi is one of the most powerful and well-liked politicians in the world… I’m not sure how many world leaders Putin is likely to pay attention to. But, given Modi Ji’s-stature, I’m optimistic that, in the event of his powerful voice, Putin will think twice “According to Ambassador Polikha. 

Despite Prime Minister Modi’s call for an end to the violence in Ukraine as soon as possible, India has refrained from openly condemning Russia.
