Ukraine Crisis Live: The Indian embassy in Kyiv issued a statement Tuesday asking citizens whose stay in Ukraine is non-essential to consider leaving the country “temporarily.” It said that the embassy will continue to function normally.

Russia’s top diplomat advised President Vladimir Putin to keep talking with the West on Moscow’s security demands, a signal from the Kremlin that it intends to continue diplomatic efforts amid US warnings of an imminent Russian invasion of Ukraine. Moscow wants guarantees from the West that NATO won’t allow Ukraine and other former Soviet countries to join as members, and that the alliance will halt weapons deployments to Ukraine and roll back its forces from Eastern Europe, the demands flatly rejected by the West.

Moscow denies it has any plans to invade Ukraine but has massed well over 1,30,000 troops near its borders and, in the US view, has built up enough firepower to launch an attack on short notice. The US and its NATO allies have repeatedly warned that Russia will pay a high price for any invasion — but they have sometimes struggled to present a united front.
