Who Is Abhay Kumar Singh, Legislator Of Vladimir Putin Who Justified War Against Ukraine?

Amid the Russia-Ukraine war, Russia is facing widespread condemnation for all its invasion of Ukraine. But Russian president Vladmir Putin who has a connection with Indian-origin legislators supports Putin. Dr Abhay Kumar Singh has supported the Russian military’s actions in Ukraine. He maintained that Ukraine was given enough room for talks, failing which the decision for war against Ukraine was taken.

Dr. Abhay Kumar Singh is a deputat (parallel to an MLA in India) who justified Russia’s military action against Ukraine. He claimed that Ukraine had been given enough opportunity for talks before the decision for war was taken, reports India Today. He drew an analogy with India, asking rhetorically what it would be like if China were to set up its military base in Bangladesh.

 “If Ukraine joins NATO, it will bring NATO forces closer to us as Ukraine is our neighbouring country and it would be a violation of the agreement,” he said.

Speaking about Putin’s address where he hinted at using nuclear weapons, Singh said, “No one needs to be afraid of nuclear weapons. Our President has announced it, but we take action only if we are attacked by other nations.”

He then added and blamed Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy for the current situation and said, “Ukraine’s President is responsible for the situation. He came under the influence of the other countries and now has run away from the responsibilities.” 

He further said during discussions, Russia has made its stand clear that the President of Ukraine had to step down as he was under the influence of other countries and speaking their language.

Abhay Singh who was born in Bihar’s Patna, went to Russia in 1991 to study medicine. He then came back to India to practise as a doctor but went back to Russia and started a pharmaceutical business soon after. After a few years of his practice, he joined Putin’s party in 2015. In 2018, he won a provincial election from the Western Russian city of Kursk.

While he continued to build relations with local Russians in Kursk, his Indian connection remained close to his heart. In 2015, on the first International Yoga Day, Singh organized a Yoga event in Kursk.
