India has told the United Nations Security Council (UNSC) that it is still concerned about the situation in Ukraine, including the targeting of infrastructure and the deaths of civilians.

“History has shown that, regrettably, civilian killings and devastation of civilian infrastructure have been used as legitimate weapons of war.” “India strongly condemns the use of oppressive violence against innocent civilians and the targeting of civilian objects in armed conflicts, regardless of who commits it,” India’s Permanent Representative Ruchira Kamboj said during an emergency session on Ukraine.

“India has consistently called for an immediate cessation of hostilities and an end to the violence since the beginning of the Ukraine conflict.” Our Prime Minister’s statement that this cannot be a time of war has been praised around the world. This principle underpins India’s stance in the Ukraine conflict. “We continue to support all de-escalation efforts,” she said.
