India has not sent any artillery ammunition to Ukraine: MEA

India has refuted reports that claimed spotting certain Indian-origin artillery shells in Ukraine, and categorically asserted that it has not sent any ammunition to that country.

External Affairs Ministry spokesperson Randhir Jaiswal said New Delhi has neither sent nor exported any artillery ammunition to Ukraine.

“We have also seen some media reports in this regard. We can categorically say that we have not sent any of this artillery ammunition to Ukraine,” he said at a media briefing.

Jaiswal’s remarks came in response to a question on reports about Indian-made artillery shells being spotted in Ukraine.

India has been maintaining that the conflict in Ukraine must be resolved through dialogue and diplomacy.
