Ukraine Invasion: Hour-Long March In Delhi To Voice Support For Russia

New Delhi: A group of Hindu Sena volunteers staged a march in central Delhi on Sunday to voice their support for Russia in their invasion of Ukraine.

The activists of the right-wing organization marched around Connaught Place area for about an hour, raising slogans like ‘Russia tum sangharsh karo, hum tumhare sath hain (Russia, you fight, we are with you)’, ‘Bharat Mata ki Jai’ and ‘Bharat-Russia Dosti Zindabad’.

Following Vladimir Putin’s announcement of a military operation against Ukraine on February 24, Russian troops have been bombarding different cities of the eastern European country relentlessly for 11 days.

“No war is good, but if we have to choose between good and better, we would stand in support of Russia, as Russia has always been a true friend of India,” Hindu Sena’s national president Vishnu Gupta said.

He felt that the Indian government should have voted backed Russia at United Nations.

“Not getting into the official Indian stand at United Nations, we personally think that India, rather than abstaining, should have voted in favour of Russia and put our boots on the ground to safeguard our citizens and support Russia against the fascist, racist Ukraine which has always supported Pakistan and had voted against our nuclear programme,” added remarked.

Police asked the volunteers to disperse after about an hour as they did not take permission to stage a march.

Hindu Sena had earlier announced its support for Moscow and an ‘Akhand Russia’ by putting up posters on a statue of Russian writer Alexander Pushkin at Mandi House.
