Russia invades Ukraine: Ukraine turns to India, asks PM Modi for help in restoring peace

The Ukrainian envoy to India urged Prime Minister Narendra Modi to intervene to help stop Russian President Vladimir Putin and condemn his act of war on Ukraine.

“India must fully assume its global power. Modiji is a respected leader. India has a special partnership with Russia. Don’t know how many leaders Putin will listen to, but this gives me confidence that Modi’s powerful voice will listen to him,” Polikha said.

Polikha also said that he was not satisfied with India’s response. Polikha sought his support from the Government of India in a press conference.

The Ukrainian envoy urged India to use its strong ties with Russia to avert a crisis that could engulf the world.
