Putin warns Ukraine of serious response if counter-offensive continues

Amid Ukraine's strong pushback on Kremlin's invasion, Russia President Vladimir Putin has said that the counter-offensive will not affect his country's plans. Interestingly, this comes after US President Joe Biden warned Putin against the use of chemical or tactical nuclear weapons.

While vowing to continue with military action against Ukraine, Putin said Russia has not yet deployed its full forces. He was speaking at the Shanghai Cooperation Organisation summit at Samarkand in Uzbekistan.

Though he did not reveal what Russia's response will be to Ukraine's counter-offensive, Putin said he was not in a hurry.

Meanwhile, Biden has warned Putin against the use of nuclear weapons, saying his actions will change the face of war, unlike anything since World War II.

Biden said there will be consequences if Putin were to cross that line.

Earlier, during a bilateral meeting on the sidelines of the SOC, Modi had pressed Putin to end the conflict in Ukraine, saying "today's era is not of war" even as he called for finding ways to address the global food and energy security crisis.

Modi's stance was praised by the Western media which said the speech underlined Russia's widening isolation on the world stage.
