Jaishankar’s address to the parliament will be important as situation in Ukraine continues to deteriorate due to the Russian invasion, which could hamper rescue operations of the Indian government.
On February 24, Operation Ganga was launched by the Centre to bring back Indian nationals caught in the conflict in Ukraine. A team of four Union Ministers – Kiren Rijiju, Hardeep Singh Puri, Jyotiraditya Scindia and General VK Singh – was formed to coordinate rescue efforts with Ukraine’s neighbours.
