The road to Ukraine peace runs through Delhi: LM

The road to Ukraine peace runs through Delhi: LM

Essence: The editorial speaks about the impacts of no-win situation, causes of the same, its impacts and the diplomatic way forward for the Russia- Ukraine crisis. Russian and Ukrainian economy have suffered a setback, inflation has skyrocketed, finances have curtailed, fuel and food supply chains disrupted, millions have been displaced and thousands killed during war. Negotiations have failed because both parties have focused on ‘positions’ rather than ‘interest’.

Mediation (assisted negotiations) could offer a flexible conflict resolution tool and be facilitated through a neutral third party like India. Mediation is a win-win situation as compared to arbitration that has a win-lose outcome. Mediation also avoids reactive stance/devaluation of discussions, and aids shuttle diplomacy to understand the leaders’ intention. An ethical question which arises is if mediation proceeds, will the war-crimes under Geneva convention be set aside and Russia’s actions legitimized or should one focus first on de-escalation of conflict.

European countries have come closer for a pragmatic security infrastructure for Europe. It must include Russia as a stakeholder- common security, common prosperity and peace. It is in India’s interest to prove its worth as ‘Vishwa-Guru’ (world leader), counter China, win the hearts of European nations and Russia alike through its astute diplomacy.

Why should you read this article?

  • To know the concept of mediation and how it is a superior conflict resolution skill.
  • To know the role that India could play in Russia-Ukraine conflict.
