Amid the clash with the West over the war, Putin has repeatedly said that Russia is not isolated on the international stage because it can turn east to major Asian powers such as China and India.

However, at the meeting in Uzbekistan of the Shanghai Organization, it was clear that there was concern about the situation.

"Today's age is not an age of war and I have told you many times," Modi said at the meeting with Putin in the ancient city of Samarkand, part of the Silk Road.

When the Indian prime minister said this, the Russian leader bit his lip and looked at Modi, Reuters noted, describing Putin's reaction.

Putin responded that he understood Delhi's concern about the conflict in Ukraine and wanted it to end as quickly as possible.

He added that Kyiv rejected the option of negotiations and decided to achieve its goals on the battlefield.

"I am aware of your position on the conflict in Ukraine, which you have consistently demonstrated," he told Modi.

"We will do everything to stop this as soon as possible. Unfortunately, the opposing side, the Ukrainian leaders, refused any possibility of negotiations and stated that they want to achieve their goals by military means," the Russian leader added.

He made similar comments in his meeting with Chinese leader Xi Jinping yesterday, saying he understood Beijing's concern over the conflict.

Russia, which has been sanctioned by the West, is trying to forge closer ties with China and India.

These two countries have announced a deepening of economic relations and are buying more energy from Russia.

India is the second largest buyer of Russian oil after China.
