"Democracies Need To Stand Together": Top US Official To NDTV On Russia

New Delhi: Hours after US President Joe Biden's comment that India is an exception among Washington's allies with its "shaky" response to the Russian invasion of Ukraine, a top American official has said democracies need to "stand together and evolve their position". President Biden yesterday made the comment while praising the US-led alliance, including NATO, the European Union and key Asian partners, for a united front against Russian President Vladimir Putin. But in the Quad - comprising India, Australia, Japan and US - India continues to buy Russian oil and has abstained from votes condemning Moscow at the UN. "Democracies need to stand together and evolve their position vis-a-vis Russia because of the choices Putin has made. Democracies must stand against autocracies like Russia and China," US Undersecretary of State for Political Affairs, Victoria Nuland, told NDTV in an exclusive interview, adding that this was conveyed to New Delhi. The official, who has been talking to Indian counterparts in Delhi, said it was especially important for democracies to stand together now, when "autocracies like Russia and China are showing what a level of threat they can be to peace and security". Ms Nuland said the Russian invasion was "vicious and inhumane", and hospitals and schools were being bombed. "You see, in four weeks, on how vicious, violent and inhumane this invasion has been. Maternity hospitals, apartment buildings, orphanages, schools, opera houses hit and so in capitals around the world and in Washington DC, the sheer horror of this is having a profound effect," said the top official.
