During the three-day visit to India by the “deputy foreign minister of Ukraine,” Emine Dzhaparova, she made her request. And she met with the junior minister, Meenakshi Lekhi.
According to the release, “the Ukrainian Deputy FM also suggested that Indian businesses may be able to benefit from Ukraine’s infrastructure reconstruction.” She expressed Kyiv’s intention to forge a more solid and deep partnership with India.
India asserted that it had promised to increase its humanitarian supplies to Ukraine.

Ms. Dzhaparova gave a letter to Ms. Lekhi during a meeting on Tuesday. The next round of bilateral foreign office meetings will take place in Kyiv on a mutually agreeable date, according to the MEA.
Ukraine’s first deputy foreign minister left India on Wednesday. Following the start of Russia’s invasion of the East European nation on February 24, last year, it was Ukraine’s first trip to India.
During a bilateral conversation with Russian President Vladimir Putin in September last year, Prime Minister Narendra Modi stated, “Today’s era is not one of war.”
The visit of Ms. Dzhaparova marks the government of Ukraine’s first outreach of this kind since the beginning of the purported “special military operation” by the Russian forces on February 24, 2022.
President Zelensky has talked with PM Modi multiple times since they met at the COP-26 conference in Glasgow in November 2021, but sending any senior or official representative to India is happening for the very first time.
