Denis Alipov, the Russian ambassador to India, accused the West of cherry-picking statements from Prime Minister Narendra Modis' address to Russian President Vladimir Putin that conflicted with their own interests and dismissing Modis's statement that India shares an unbreakable relationship with Russia, citing his strong and clear commitment to strengthen ties with Moscow.India and Russia, according to Alipov, are in agreement on Ukraine's situation, arguing for a peaceful settlement of the conflict.On the sidelines of the SCO summit, French President Emmanuel Macron and others lauded Modis' remark to Putin that this was not the time of war.Russia will stop oil deliveries to countries that sign up to the G7 program for a price cap on Russian oil, Alipov said.
