WASHINGTON -- India should "speak with a stronger voice" against Russia's invasion of Ukraine, U.S. Rep. Ami Bera told Nikkei in a telephone interview, stressing that "this is a situation where there really can't be a middle ground."

Bera, a Indian-American Democratic congressman who represents the California district that includes the city of Sacramento, chairs the House Foreign Affairs subcommittee on Asia, the Pacific, Central Asia, and nonproliferation, giving him significant clout on legislation and spending in that area.
