Zelensky and Modi met at the G7 summit
During the meeting, Volodymyr Zelensky called on Narendra Modi to join the Ukrainian Formula of Peace.
President Volodymyr Zelensky met with Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi for the first time since the start of a full-scale war in Ukraine. This was reported by the press service of the Ukrainian leader on Saturday, May 20.
The meeting was held as part of the G7 summit in Japan. Zelensky told the Prime Minister of India about the humanitarian needs of Ukraine, including mine clearance and mobile hospitals. He also encouraged Modi to join the Peace Formula.
“The war brought many crises and suffering. Deported children, mined territories, cities destroyed, destinies destroyed,” the president said.
He thanked India for supporting the territorial integrity of Ukraine and providing humanitarian assistance. For his part, Narendra Modi thanked Zelensky for his help during the evacuation of Indian students from Ukraine.
As you know, India did not condemn the Russian invasion of Ukraine, but, on the other hand, it did not support Moscow either. The country did not recognize Russia’s annexation of the occupied territories of Ukraine.
At the same time, India increased trade with Russia, in particular, began to buy much more oil against the backdrop of Western sanctions.
Recall, on May 20, Volodymyr Zelenskyy arrived in Japan for the G7 summit in Hiroshima. The president has already met with the prime ministers of Britain and Italy.
