Prime Minister Modi, speaking during the meeting on Friday reportedly told Putin that “this is not an era of war” the Russia’s leader should choose the path of peace.

“Today’s era isn’t of war and I’ve spoken to you about it on call. Today, we’ll get the opportunity to talk about how we can progress on the path of peace. India and Russia have stayed together with each other for several decades,” Modi said.

Russia began the invasion of Ukraine which was tagged “special military operation” on February 24 and six months later, the war is still going on despite calls for peace from both allies and foes of Russia.

India, a long standing ally of Russia had stayed away from taking sides in the war, asking both sides to embrace peace.
Putin meanwhile, told PM Modi that he understands his concern and that he would keep him informed on all that is happening and the war would be called off as soon as possible.

“I know about your position on the conflict in Ukraine and also about your concerns. We want all of this to end as soon as possible. We will keep you abreast of what is happening there,” Putin told Modi.

Prime Minister Modi who discussed issues of security and food with Putin also thanked Moscow and Kyiv for allowing the evacuation of Indian students from the war zone.

“We spoke on the phone several times about India-Russia bilateral relations and also on various issues. We should find ways to address the problems of food, fuel security and fertilisers. I want to thank Russia and Ukraine for helping us to evacuate our students from Ukraine.”

Moscow suffered big loss as of recent as Ukraine’s soldiers claimed territories that were once under the Russian control.
