Foreign Affairs Minister S Jaishankar said in Parliament on Wednesday, 6 April that the conflict in Ukraine had global consequences, and that India would take care of its national interests.

In the aftermath of the Bucha killings, Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy in an address to the United Nations Security Council (UNSC) on Tuesday, 5 April, called for Russia's expulsion from the top decision-making body.

He also challenged the UNSC saying that if the council cannot find a way to stop Russia's actions in Ukraine, it should "dissolve", because it proves "there is nothing that you can do besides conversation".

  • Twitter has introduced new measures against Russian government accounts in order to reduce the impact of official propaganda on the social network
