For all the success of the U.S.-led campaign to isolate Russia on the world stage, India has stood out as one major democracy reluctant to criticize Russian President Vladimir Putin — and billions of dollars in weapons purchases mean that’s unlikely to change anytime soon.

Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s government is facing more pressure from his partners in “the Quad” alliance — the U.S., Japan and Australia — to help push Russia toward a cease-fire.

After meeting Modi in New Delhi on Saturday, Prime Minister Fumio Kishida called for more cooperation between democracies while noting Putin’s war has "shaken the global order.” Modi, by contrast, spoke only on economic issues.
