Russian President Vladimir Putin on Friday said that his country too wants to end the war against Ukraine as soon as possible. His comments came at a bilateral discussion with Prime Minister Narendra Modi on the sidelines of the SCO summit in Uzbekistan.

It is the first meeting between the two leaders after the Ukraine conflict broke out in February this year. It is learnt that the two leaders discussed bilateral, regional and global issues.

India has not yet criticised Russia for its invasion of Ukraine. New Delhi has been pushing for the resolution of the crisis through dialogue. 

Putin congratulated India for assuming the presidency the following year.
