India's Prime Minister Narendra Modi told Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky during a phone call on Tuesday that he will help peace efforts with Russia, just days after India abstained from a United Nations vote condemning the Russian annexation of four regions in Ukraine. We speak to the prominent Indian activist Kavita Krishnan about the different stances of India's political parties toward the war in Ukraine and the interrelated struggles against authoritarianism in countries such as Iran and India. India's foreign policy is currently like "walking a tightrope," says Krishnan. "It would like to have a relationship with Russia. At the same time, it wants to build a bridge with America."
