On the second day of the Russian invasion of Ukraine, MP Sophia Fedyna sought medical and political aid from India. She said, “Ukraine needs not just weapon support, but also psychological help and we need to punish the aggressor — Moscow. They are killing peaceful Ukrainians.”
“I beg all Indian politicians to protect the human rights of a sovereign country,” she said in an exclusive interview with India Today. She was speaking from inside a bomb shelter in Ukraine.
She also dismissed reports of the port city of Odessa in southern Ukraine having fallen to Russian forces. She said she had spoken to another Parliamentarian who confirmed that Odessa is still under Kyiv’s control. “The reports are Russian propaganda,” she said.
