Japan reworks Ukraine aid plan after India blocks military plane

Rerouting of flights likely to delay relief shipments to refugees

TOKYO -- Japan is redrawing its plan for transporting humanitarian aid supplies to displaced Ukrainians after Tokyo said India had refused to let Self-Defense Forces aircraft land in the country.

The plan was for an Air Self-Defense Force plane to pick up relief items at United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees supply depots in India and the United Arab Emirates, then drop them off in Poland and Romania, neighbors of Ukraine that have taken in large numbers of refugees.
