Ukrainian Ambassador to India Alexander Polishchuk said that Kyiv would like greater condemnation of Russian aggression from New Delhi. This is what he’s talking about reported in an interview with Voice of America.
According to him, during communication with Indian colleagues, it became clear that there is support and understanding for Ukraine.
“I meet with ordinary people, and when they find out that I am from Ukraine, they all say, listen, we are simply amazed how one country could commit such aggression against Ukraine,” Polishchuk said.
He noted that India also has problems with its neighbors (Pakistan and China), and therefore the situation in Ukraine is understandable for it.
“For them, there is no question of who is right and who is wrong, because they clearly understand that this is Russian aggression. At the same time, at the political level, we would like to observe condemnation from India with more emphasis,” the diplomat said.
The Ukrainian representative emphasized that the Indian media are widely covering the Russian war against Ukraine, and therefore the people of India understand and feel what is happening.
- On September 9, 2023, the G20 club adopted a joint declaration at the summit in India: it calls for compliance with the principles of international law, in particular the territorial integrity and sovereignty of countries, and also notes the inadmissibility of the use of nuclear weapons.
- Ukraine stated that with such a communiqué the club “has nothing to be proud of”: the Foreign Ministry showed its version of the declaration, which would reflect the realities.
- The G20 declaration in Indonesia in November 2022 spoke about Russian aggression against Ukraine. This time there is nothing like that in the document.
