Prime Minister Narendra Modi had told Russian President Vladimir Putin about the Ukraine conflict after the SCO summit recently that today’s era is not of war. America is now praising this statement of PM Modi fiercely.
Dr Eli Ratner, Assistant Secretary of Defense for Indo-Pacific Security Affairs, told a group of think-tank experts during a virtual round table, “We were pleased with Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s remarks over the past week.”
Ratner said the US stands by India’s commitment to finding a swift and peaceful resolution to the Ukraine conflict and continues to engage with the issue.
Prior to this, US National Security Advisor Jake Sullivan also told the media at the White House news conference that what the Prime Minister said was a principled statement, which he believes to be correct. America welcomes this statement of India.
PM Modi rightly said, this is not the time for war: Macron
On 21 September, French President Emmanuel Macron had said in a session of the United Nations General Assembly, “Prime Minister of India, Narendra Modi rightly said that this is not an era of war. This is not the time to take revenge on the West and pit it against the East. It is time that we all sovereign nations face the challenges before us unitedly, he was right.
Ukraine’s aid will not be affected by Putin’s threat
US Defense Department press secretary Patrick Ryder made it clear that Putin’s threat to use nuclear would not affect aid to Ukraine.
After his statement, Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky told German media that he does not believe that Russia will use nuclear weapons. I don’t think the world will allow him (Putin) to use nuclear weapons.
US President Joe Biden has hit out at Putin, saying that Russia is constantly aiming to take away Ukraine’s right to remain as a country. Biden has also called for a ban on the use of the veto in the Security Council.
Putin said that Western countries are plotting to destroy and weaken Russia. These countries have crossed the limit. Not only this, Putin warned Western countries that if Russia’s territorial integrity was threatened, they would use all the resources available with Russia. Putin said that the mistake should not be made to take this warning lightly.
More than 55 thousand soldiers of Russia were killed in 6 months
Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky has claimed that 55,110 Russian soldiers have been killed in the six-month-long war with the Russians. At the same time, thousands of soldiers have been injured or crippled.
He asked Russia whether it wanted more such devastation? No? Resist, fight, run or surrender to the Ukrainians, he said, adding that these are the only options for survival for Russian soldiers.
Order to deploy 3 lakh Russian reserve troops
President Vladimir Putin has ordered the deployment of 300,000 reserve troops to Russia. Putin’s announcement came at a time when Russia is preparing to annex the four parts of Ukraine. For this, Russia is going to start a referendum in these areas from today.
People living in these areas will be able to cast their vote between 23-27 September. On the other hand, Ukraine and its allies have targeted Russia, calling this referendum illegal.
