India Condemns The Massacre In Bucha But Refuses To Denounce Russia Directly

Indian officials have heavily denounced the massacre in the Ukrainian village of Bucha, but it seems that's how far they'll go.

The government in New Delhi has still been stopping themselves short of directly criticizing Moscow, as India doesn't want to break neutrality and have trade with Russia cut off.

Both India and Russia are members of the B.R.I.C.S. (Brazil, Russia, India, China, and South Africa) economic and trade alliance, New Delhi trades textiles and food to Russia in exchange for arms and oil from Moscow.

As a result, India has frequently voted against UN legislation to condemn the war in Ukraine.

The UN and NATO have thus far been surprisingly accommodating towards India's stance on the war, given recent criticisms of Hungary's, South Africa's, and China's view of the war.

But as mounting evidence of genocide, war crimes, and atrocities continue to pile up, it is only a matter of time before more pressure is put on India and the other B.R.I.C.S. Nations to pick a side.
