‘Extremely disturbing’, India criticises civilian killings in Ukraine’s Bucha at UNSC meet


It is marked as the first time that New Delhi has openly condemned actions blamed on the Russian military as India criticized civilian killings in Ukraine’s Bucha at UNSC meet.

On Tuesday, India censured the execution of civilians at Bucha in Ukraine. India promotes the call for an independent investigation into the event, the very first time New Delhi has publicly condemned Russian troops.  

Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky addressed the meeting of the United Nations Security Council while the Indian representative TS Tirumurti at UNSC said “it was deeply disturbing. We undeniably criticise these mass killings in Ukraine and hold up the call for Independent investigation, the impact of the crisis is being perceived beyond the region with the increasing cost of food and energy, mainly for many developing countries”. 

The current situation in Ukraine has not manifested any “ significant changes” therefore the security council lastly talked about the matter. He further added that “The security situation has only deteriorated, as well as its humanitarian consequences. When the lives of innocent humans are at stake, diplomacy must prevail as the only feasible alternative.” 

From the last few days, horrific pictures have emerged of mass graves and dozens of dead bodies of civilians, few bodies were sheltered with hoods, and their hands were tied behind their back, in the capital city of Kyiv after it was declared by the Russian military. Responding to this Russia’s defense ministry has denied the allegations that its troops were killed in Bucha that was recently re-captured by Ukrainian soldiers.

So far India has not been concerned about any action of Russian Forces, not directly in Ukraine. It has called for admiring the UN authorization and the jurisdiction of all states. India’s top administrators have also called for an end to violence and a return to the path of statesmanship and dialogue.

 Tirumurti said, “It is in our common interest to work positively, both inside the United Nations and outside, on the way to looking for an early intention to the conflict.” India aspires that the international community will continue to acknowledge the humanitarian needs in Ukraine, Tirumurti added, supporting calls for guarantees of safe passage to provide humanitarian and medical supplies.
