US Secretary of State Antony Blinken said Friday that concerns on Ukraine heard by Russian President Vladimir Putin at a summit from Chinese and Indian leaders put pressure on him to end the war.

“I think what you’re hearing from China, from India, is reflective of concerns around the world about the effects of Russia’s aggression on Ukraine, not just on the people of Ukraine,” Blinken told reporters.

“I think it increases the pressure on Russia to end the aggression.”
