"Russia 'appreciates India's response' to Ukraine war"
Russia's Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov is in India as part of efforts to strengthen ties with Delhi.
In a statement released before talks with his Indian counterpart Subrahmanyam Jaishankar, Lavrov said Russia appreciated India's response to the war in Ukraine.
"We appreciate that India is taking this situation in the entirety of facts and not just in a one-sided way," Lavrov said.
India has stopped short of criticizing Russia for invading Ukraine.
It has tried to walk a diplomatic tightrope over Ukraine as it tries to balance its ties with Moscow and the West.
UK Foreign Secretary Liz Truss is also in India in an attempt to boost relations.
