Russia-Ukraine War LIVE updates: Russia announces ceasefire for evacuations; PM Modi and Zelenskyy discuss evolving situation in Ukraine

New Delhi: Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Monday spoke to Ukranian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy and sought his “support” in evacuation of Indian students stuck in northeastern Ukraine’s Sumy city.

Around 700 Indian students are stranded in Sumy amid intense fighting between Russian and Ukrainian troops.

In a phone conversation that lasted for around 35 minutes, Prime Minister Modi thanked President Zelenskyy for the help extended by the government of Ukraine in evacuation of Indian nationals from Ukraine, official sources said.

“Prime Minister Modi sought continued support from the government of Ukraine in ongoing efforts for evacuation of Indian nationals from Sumy,” a source said about the talks.

Sources said the two leaders discussed the evolving situation in Ukraine. Modi appreciated the continuing direct dialogue between Russia and Ukraine, they said.

It was the second telephonic conversation between Modi and Zelenskyy after the conflict began in Ukraine.

Meanwhile, Modi will also be the latest world leader to make a call for peace between Russia and Ukraine following appeals from Israeli PM Naftali Bennett and Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan on Sunday.
