America: President Biden stated that the world should band together against Russia. We will not, under any circumstances, allow the world to be destroyed. Russia has shut down all channels of communication.
EU: Ursala van der Lin, the President of the European Union Commission, has publicly threatened Russia for the first time. – Now it’s your turn to respond,’ Lin replied. We’ll now focus on Russia’s economy. Will destabilise his economy to the point where, even if he modernises his military, he will crave even the most basic necessities. Throughout Europe, Russian assets and bank accounts have been frozen. In this matter, we firmly support the United States and our other allies.
Ukraine’s appeal: Ukraine’s ambassador in Delhi has written to India’s Prime Minister, Narendra Modi, requesting that he intervene in this issue. Ukraine’s ambassador stated, “India has always stood on the right side of things.” We are hopeful that Prime Minister Modi would assist in resolving this issue and saving the lives of our citizens. India and Ukraine have a long history of cooperation. Prime Minister Modi is well-known around the world. He needs to speak with Putin.
