Top Ukraine ministers will be visiting India on Monday to discuss possible humanitarian aid from the Indian government. The visit comes as Ukraine grapples with the aftermath of recent floods and fires that have devastated several regions of the country.
The delegation will be led by Ukraine’s Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of Strategic Industries, Oleksiy Reznikov. The group is expected to hold discussions with Indian officials on ways to strengthen ties between the two countries, with a focus on economic and defense cooperation.
During the meetings, the Ukrainian ministers are also expected to seek India’s assistance in providing humanitarian aid to the affected regions. The floods and fires have caused extensive damage to infrastructure, homes, and crops, leaving thousands of people in need of basic necessities like food, water, and shelter.
India has a long history of providing humanitarian assistance to countries in need, and the government has been actively involved in relief efforts in many parts of the world. In recent years, India has provided aid to countries affected by natural disasters, conflicts, and other crises.
The Ukrainian ministers’ visit to India is also expected to boost trade and investment ties between the two countries. India has been keen to expand its economic ties with Ukraine, particularly in the areas of defense and energy.
The visit comes at a time when India is also looking to expand its ties with other countries in the region, including Russia and China. India has been working to strengthen its defense ties with Russia, while also seeking to improve economic ties with China.
