Netizens praised this as the ‘power of Indian diplomacy’. A social media user said that India had already evacuated more than 60% of its nationals and countries like USA, the UK and China are still afraid to enter Ukraine.
The Indian government had taken a tactical position in the Russia-Ukraine war. The Narendra modi government had earlier requested both the countries to stop the war but has shied away from directly slamming Russia for the invasion.
Earlier, Russian President Vladimir Putin had a telephonic conversation with the Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi on February 26. Both the leaders discussed about the ‘Operation Ganga’, the evacuation mission of India. Putin had informed Modi that Russia is trying to facilitate the urgent evacuation of Indian students from Kharkiv through the humanitarian corridor along the shortest route to Russia.
The Russian safe passage offer came after India’s urgent request. The Russians do not want to delay the capture of Kharkiv beyond a point. So only a six-hour time slot was agreed upon. Tough for all Indians to evacuate in time it appears. ?
