As Russia launched an offensive against Ukraine, Opposition leaders, mostly from the Congress, on Thursday attacked the government for not making arrangements in time to bring 15,000 Indians in Ukraine back and accused it of “turning away its face” on its nationals in this difficult time.

Some Congress leaders also demanded that India should take a firm stand and “unequivocally condemn” Russia's action. 

Attacking the government for not acting despite repeated warnings, the Congress asked why it had not made arrangements in time to bring 15,000 Indians in Ukraine back home safely.
