PM Modi was briefed on the prevailing global scenario in the context of the ongoing conflict in Ukraine
Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Sunday chaired a Cabinet Committee on Security (CCS) meeting to review India’s security preparedness, and the prevailing global scenario in the context of the ongoing conflict in Ukraine.
The Prime Minister was briefed on latest developments and different aspects of India’s security preparedness in the border areas as well as in the maritime and air domain, said a statement by the Prime Minister’s Office (PMO).
The Prime Minister was also briefed on the latest developments in Ukraine, including the details of Operation Ganga to evacuate Indian nationals, along with some citizens of India’s neighbouring countries, from Ukraine, the statement said.
According to the PMO, Prime Minister Modi directed that all possible efforts should be made to bring back the mortal remains of Naveen Shekharappa, who died in Kharkiv.
India had launched Operation Ganga to evacuate Indian nationals, including students, stranded in war-hit Ukraine after Russia launched its invasion on February 24.
The Indian nationals used available means of transport to cross Ukraine's borders with countries to the west - Slovakia, Poland, Bulgaria, Romania, and Moldova. They were then brought back to India on special flights.
Indian students from Sumy in northeast Ukraine were among the last to be evacuated.
