Kyiv: Day 137 of Russian invasion, Ukraine’s President Volodymyr Zelensky on Saturday sacked Kyiv’s ambassador to India. This information has been given through the official website of the President. Along with India, the ambassadors of Ukraine in many other countries have been removed.
According to the news of Reuters, no reason has been given behind this order. The sacking of Ukraine’s ambassadors to Germany, the Czech Republic, Norway and Hungary has also been announced. It is not yet clear whether he will be given a new job.
Zelensky has urged his diplomats to garner international support and military aid for Ukraine as it needs it to defend against Russia’s February 24 invasion.
Kyiv’s relations with Germany have been a particularly sensitive matter. Germany, which is heavily dependent on Russian energy supplies, is the largest economy in Europe.
Let us tell you that on February 24 this year, Russia launched an offensive against Ukraine against joining the West-backed military alliance NATO. Russia has accused the US-led West of trying to expand its sphere of influence by connecting smaller countries like Ukraine to NATO and coming too close to Russian borders.
