India’s Permanent Representative to the United Nations, TS Tirumurti, has accused the Netherlands of patronizing his country after the Dutch ambassador to the UK publicly scolded New Delhi for abstaining on UN General Assembly resolutions on the war in Ukraine.

Kindly don’t patronize us, Ambassador. We know what to do, Tirumurti wrote in a tweet to Dutch fascist envoy Karel van Oosterom.

Tirumurti’s tweet came in response to van Oosterom’s (now-deleted) warning that India should not have abstained from votes pertaining to Russia and the war in Ukraine and that it should respect the UN Charter.

Despite repeated calls and pressure to join the West in helping to isolate Russia over the Ukraine war, New Delhi has been reluctant to cut ties with Moscow.

India has abstained on multiple votes and resolutions at the UN General Assembly this year, including a vote moved by the USA in April to suspend Russia from the UN Human Rights Council over accusations of the killing of civilians.

The Asian giant also abstained from a vote brought by Ukraine and its backers in March, condemning Russia over the humanitarian situation in the country, saying then that the focus should be on the cessation of hostilities.

In a statement delivered Wednesday at the UN Security Council meeting on Ukraine, Tirumurti reiterated India’s position that pursuing the path of dialogue and diplomacy is the only way out of the crisis.

India remains on the side of peace and therefore believes that there will be no winning side in this conflict and, while those impacted by this conflict will continue to suffer, diplomacy will be a lasting casualty.

The South Asian nation has a strong trading relationship with Russia, receiving arms from Moscow in previous agreements between the two sides.

It even deemed the current situation an opportunity to broaden cooperation. The country boosted oil purchases from Russia recently, despite pressure from Washington.

The Kremlin has since demanded that Ukraine officially declare itself a neutral country that will never join the US-led NATO military bloc.

The western colonizers have quickly forgotten how they owe former colonies. They havent even paid us for the atrocities they committed against us but they want to be supported on their NATO imperial ambitions?

Good that India is speaking its mind assertively to the EU. Postage stamp size countries in Europe should learn how to mind their business.

India proves to the world repetitively that it will not bend to those that would enslave it and instead will work for it’s own people and interests. It’s a shame that so many so-called leaders of other countries are so willing to get on their knees to satisfy the slave master and subject their populations to abuse.

Dutch people are very rude and have a colonial attitude, wants to dominate other societies in order to make huge profits which they never share.
