India condemns civilian killings in Ukraine’s Bucha, supports call for probe

Days after the horrific killings of civilians in Ukraine’s Bucha, External Affairs Minister S Jaishankar said during a debate on Ukraine crisis in Lok Sabha on Wednesday that India strongly condemns the incident.

“We strongly condemn the killings in Buka and support the call for an independent investigation,” he said.

Stressing on an immediate end to hostilities, he said India was encouraging dialogue between Ukraine and Russia. “That was precisely the message given to Lavrov. If India can assist, we will be happy to consider it.”
