The Russo-Ukrainian War is an ongoing conflict that began in 2014. India appears to have changed its stance on the war. According to Foreign Minister S. Jaishankar’s statement in the Upper House of Parliament on March 24, 2022, India has dropped its insistence on taking into account the “legitimate security concerns of all countries” (a pro-Russian point) . India remains committed to principles of sovereignty and territorial integrity but won’t be a camp follower.
India’s response to the Russian invasion of Ukraine has been distinctive among the major democracies and among U.S. strategic partners. Despite its discomfort with Moscow’s war, New Delhi has adopted a studied public neutrality toward Russia. It has abstained from successive votes in the UN Security Council, General Assembly, and Human Rights Council condemning Russia’s aggression against Ukraine. The Biden administration is trying to urge India to take a “clear position” on the Russia-Ukraine crisis.
