Ukraine-Russia tension: At UNSC, India asks all sides to exercise restraint

At an emergency session of the security council on Ukraine, India while expressing its “concern” has called for “de-escalation of tensions”. The session was held in the hours after Russian President Putin announced recognition of Eastern Ukraine’s Donetsk & Luhansk as independent states ringing alarm bells in western capital. 

India’s envoy to the United Nations TS Tirumurti said, “escalation of tension along the border of Ukraine with the Russian Federation is a matter of deep concern” and these “developments have the potential to undermine peace and security of the region”. Calling for “restraint on all sides”, envoy said,”immediate priority is de-escalation of tensions taking into account the legitimate security interests of all countries and aimed towards securing long term peace and stability in the region and beyond.”
