Amid the ongoing war with Russia, Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky has taken an important step. He has fired Ukraine’s ambassadors to nine countries, including India. In addition to India, these 9 countries include Germany, Sri Lanka, Bangladesh, Nepal, Maldives, Norway, Hungary and the Czech Republic.
Ukraine’s ambassador to Germany Andriy Melnyk has been fired, according to an order published on the Ukrainian president’s website. The order did not give a reason for the action, nor did it say whether the ambassadors would be posted elsewhere. Zelensky also urged diplomats in the order to mobilize international support and military aid for Ukraine.

When Ukraine insisted that Canada not supply the turbines, it said that providing them to Russia would be a violation of sanctions imposed on it.
