Send ’em Back: MEA Stern On Russia Using Indians In Army

| Updated: June 13, 2024 12:00

India’s foreign secretary, Vinay Mohan Kwatra, has said that while it is another matter as to how the Indians got into the war fighting for Russia, he has told the Russian officials to arrange to repatriate all Indians from the war zone.

The remarks of the top official in the Ministry of External Affairs (MEA) came in the wake of the news of two more Indians dying on the war front fighting on the side of Russia in the Russia-Ukraine conflict.

The MEA sounded deeply concerned when it said that the Russian military should “stop any further recruitment of Indian nationals,” adding that such activities are not in “consonance with our partnership.”

The foreign office confirmed the deaths of the two Indians and pushed for the early release and return of all Indian nationals who are with the Russian Army. “All of our efforts are aimed at keeping the Indians safe,” the Foreign Secretary said.

Around 200 Indian nationals were recruited as security helpers in the Russian military. So far, a total of 10 Indians working as support staff with the Russian army have been repatriated to India.

In March, 30-year-old Hyderabad resident Mohammed Asfan died while serving with the Russian army. In February, Hemal Ashwinbhai Mangua, from Gujarat, lost his life in a similar condition.

The Indian External Affairs Ministry has demanded to stop any further recruitment of Indian nationals by the Russian Army while urging Indian nationals to exercise caution while seeking employment opportunities in Russia.

The CBI recently revealed that several agents are luring Indians with lucrative job offers and pushing them into dangerous military assistance jobs. The Foreign Office asked Indians to refrain from taking such risky jobs.
