Ukraine President Volodymyr Zelenskyy held a meeting with his military chief to discuss further liberation of Russian-occupied Ukraine territory.
In an interview with CNBC-TV18, Daniel Fried, former US envoy to Poland said Putin has doubled his aggression as he isn't winning the war, "His offer of negotiations to the Ukrainians is no offer at all, it is a demand for their surrender."
Fried, however, believes that India can play an important role in convincing Putin to stand down.
"In his speech, Putin did implicitly threaten the use of nuclear weapons and India may have something to say about that. Narendra Modi was quite strong in Tashkent asking for peace. That was a good solid statement. So I think India can play an important role in convincing Putin to stand down if he can," he added.
