Moscow, June 30 (EFE).- Russian President Vladimir Putin spoke with Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi over the phone on Friday and discussed the situation in Ukraine.
Putin told Modi that Kyiv has flatly rejected any political-diplomatic solution to the conflict, the Kremlin reported.
During the conversation, held at the initiative of the Indian side, Putin spoke of the current state of affairs in the area of the special military operation in Ukraine and highlighted Kyiv’s refusal to take political or diplomatic steps to settle the conflict.
“The conversation had a meaningful and constructive character. The leaders reiterated mutual commitment to strengthening privileged strategic partnership between Russia and India and agreed to continue communication,” the Kremlin press service said.
According to Moscow, Modi also expressed his support to the Russian authorities for the measures taken with respect to the failed rebellion of the Wagner Group.
Modi has expressed concern about Russia’s offensive in Ukraine, although he has avoided criticizing Moscow in the same way as some Western countries.
In September last year, Putin acknowledged that the Indian prime minister had conveyed to him his concern regarding the conflict in Ukraine.
The previous conversation between the two leaders took place in December 2022.
