Also, India Abstains From UN Vote On Russian Invasion Of Ukraine
India once again abstained from voting in a UN General Assembly resolution that condemned Russia’s invasion of Ukraine which started a year ago.
The motion was backed by 141 nations with 32 abstaining and seven, including Russia, voting against it.
India reiterated its position on the invasion, saying that peaceful dialogue was the only way out.
India has increasingly faced pressure to take a firm stand on Russia.
Many countries, including the us and Ukraine, have publicly appealed to India to take a clear stand and “do the right thing”.
But India has resisted the pressure and continued with its strategy of not criticizing Russia directly.
it has abstained from similar resolutions both at the UNGA and at the UNSC in the past.
