Even as India takes a diplomatic stand in the ongoing Russia-Ukraine war, Bihar born Abhay Kumar Singh, an Indian-origin member of Putin’s party, is all out in support of Kremlin. In an interview to a Hindi channel, Singh said this is not war. “It is like ‘India’s surgical strike’. Russia is only attacking military camps in Ukraine. This is just a reply,” as he chose to label it.
He further questioned: “Ask Zelensky why he is giving arms to people. Why is he releasing prisoners?” Abhay Kumar Singh is a deputat, a post like an MLA in India, from Kursk, a Western Russian city. He started his parallel business and eventually joined politics. He contested and won elections from Putin’s United Russia party. According to reports, Abhay Kumar Singh went to Patna’s Loyola and then went to Russia to pursue medical education and also returned to Patna to practise. But he decided to settle in Kursk where he studied medicine.
Talking to the channel about the ongoing “military invasion,” Abhay Kumar Singh said Russia is not planning any nuclear attack on Ukraine. The nuclear drill was being conducted only to respond if any country attacks Russia.
