India has not publicly condemned Russia’s invasion of Ukraine and has voted against resolutions denouncing Russia at the United Nations. However, India abstained last week on a resolution on the humanitarian crisis in Ukraine supported by Russia, which was considered as a reflection of the country’s neutral stance on the conflict.
