India urges Russia & Ukraine for a ceasefire to rescue stranded citizens

Russian presidential aide Vladimir Medinsky, who is also the head of the Russian committee, told that the two sides discussed military issues, humanitarian issues, and a future political settlement of the dispute.

As the Russian attacks proceeds in Ukraine, the Indian government has asserted that evacuation of its inhabitants from the war-torn zones appears tough without a ceasefire between the two nations.

“It (evacuation) looks hard without a ceasefire. We oblige the parties concerned – Ukraine and Russia – to have a local ceasefire at least so that we can withdraw our people and students,” the ministry of external affairs announced on Friday.

This arrives as Russia and Ukraine on Thursday conceded to found humanitarian corridors to quit civilians in the second round of conversations in Belarus. “There is a solution only for the group of humanitarian corridors,” Mykhailo Podoliak, the advisor to the head of the president’s office of Ukraine, put down on Twitter.

Russian presidential aide Vladimir Medinsky, who is also the head of the Russian committee, told that the two sides discussed military issues, humanitarian issues, and a future political settlement of the dispute.

“We have thoroughly talked over three points – military, international and humanitarian, and the third one is an issue of a future political restriction of the conflict. Both positions are apparent and written down. …Russian and Ukrainian defence ministries agreed on giving humanitarian corridors for civilians and on a reasonable temporary ceasefire in areas where evacuation is going on,” Medinsky was referred to as saying by numerous reports.
