Dialogue Between India and the US on Humanitarian Assistance to Ukraine

Biden and Modi: humanitarian support now and the reconstruction of Ukraine after the victory

On June 22, online talks between Joe Biden and Indian PM Narendra Modi took place.

"Both countries pledged to continue to provide humanitarian assistance to the people of Ukraine. They called for respect for international law, the principles of the UN Charter, territorial integrity and sovereignty. Both countries agreed on the importance of rebuilding Ukraine after the conflict," press-release of the talks on the website of the White House.

The leaders mutually expressed their deep sorrows to the Ukrainians who are suffering from malicious Russian attacks that have grave humanitarian consequences. Like, for example, the blowing up of the Kakhovka HPS, the mining of the Zaporizhzhia NPP and other Russian perversions.

"The leaders underlined the serious and growing impact of the war on the global economic system, including food, fuel and energy security and critical supply chains," the press-release.

The leaders confirmed their intention to strengthen cooperation also in the field of assistance to states that have also suffered due to Russian actions against Ukraine. For example, the blockade of the Black sea and the withdrawal from the grain agreements will lead to famine in developing countries, the undermining of the Kakhovka HPS will lead to an environmental disaster in countries that have a common sea with Ukraine, the terrorist attack at the Zaporizhzhia NP is contaminated with radiation in countries bordering Ukraine.
