India backs Ukraine on virtual UN talk | India News – Times of India


NEW DELHI: For the second time in two months, India voted in favour of allowing Ukraine President Volodymyr Zelenskyy to address the United Nations virtually. More than 100 countries voted in favour allowing Zelensky to address the high-level UN General Assembly session next week through a pre-recorded statement because of his need to deal with the war on his country unleashed by Russia.
In what was seen as India’s first vote against Russia, the government had last month backed Zelenskyy’s right to address the UN Security Council virtually. China abstained on both occasions.

India’s vote came hours after after PM Modi told Russian president Vladimir Putin on the sidelines of the just-concluded SCO summit in Samarkand that “this isn’t the era of war”.
