Earlier in the day, Prime Minister Narendra Modi chaired a CCS meeting to review India's security preparedness and the prevailing global scenario in the context of the ongoing conflict in Ukraine.

During the meeting, he was briefed on the latest developments in Ukraine, including the details of Operation Ganga to evacuate Indian nationals, along with some citizens of India's neighboring countries, from the war-torn nation.
