Indian representative at the UN, TS Tirumurti asserted that India is deeply concerned about the worsening situation and believes that the hostilities being done against the Ukrainian population must stop immediately.
He suggested that in situations when innocent human lives are facing the brunt of violence, diplomacy remains the only option to tackle the situation. The Impact of the Ukraine-Russia conflict can be felt beyond the region and the countries. The costs of food energy have increased and many developing countries have been suffering from it.
Tirumurti said that it was the duty of all the countries at the UN to come as one and work inside as well as outside the UN to make efforts to resolve the conflict between the two countries. He said that we are very disturbed to hear about the civilian killings in Bucha.
India has unequivocally condemned such a brutal act and believes that an independent investigation should be called for to serve justice on the matter. Ever since the Russia-Ukraine conflict arose, India has maintained its stand for peace and the importance of dialogue and diplomacy to bring about peace.
Brutal murders of innocent lives are not going to serve any benefit to any country and must be ended immediately. India is on the side of peace and will stick to its side, maintaining that this brutality must end.

Is The Suspension Of Russia The Solution?
Suspending Russia from the UNHRC is undoubtedly an expression of disapproval for the violation of humanity that Russia has been up to. However, it might not be the best way to pressurize a superpower like Russia from backing down from warfare they’re leading. Diplomacy and dialogue between the countries, followed by genuine and justified negotiation might have proved to be a better idea.
