No one will win the war between Russia and Ukraine, Prime Minister Narendra Modi said in Berlin on 1st May even as his German counterpart, Chancellor Olaf Scholz, stood by his side and urged President Vladimir Putin to stop "senseless killings" and withdraw his troops from the East European country.

Modi remained firm in New Delhi's stance on the conflict, declining to join Scholz in condemning Russia's military aggression against Ukraine.

The joint statement issued by the two leaders following their meeting reflected their disagreement on the Russia-Ukraine conflict.

Germany insisted on recording its "strong condemnation" of Russia's "unlawful and unprovoked" aggression against Ukraine in the joint statement.

India, on the other hand, avoided criticizing Russia, instead of joining Germany in expressing "serious concern" about the humanitarian crisis, condemning civilian deaths in Ukraine and calling for an "immediate cessation of hostilities."

New Delhi, on the other hand, sent a subtle message to Moscow, with Prime Minister Narendra Modi pointing out that fuel prices were skyrocketing as a result of the Russia-Ukraine conflict, which had also resulted in a food and fertilizer crisis.

It will rather harm everyone," Modi said as he and Scholz addressed the media after co-chairing the sixth round of India-biennial Germany's "Inter-Governmental Consultations." "It will increase the financial burden on every household in the world." However, developing and poor countries will be the hardest hit."

Modi arrived in Berlin on 1st May for a three-day tour of Germany, Denmark, and France, despite criticism from Western countries for India's refusal to condemn Russia for its military operations in Ukraine.
With its attack on Ukraine, Russia, according to the German Chancellor, has jeopardised fundamental principles of international law and the United Nations Charter.

Scholz stated that he and Modi agreed that the "inviolability of borders" and "national sovereignty" should always be respected.
