Russian President Vladimir Putin on Friday urged the neighbouring countries to not escalate tensions, eight days after Moscow sent its forces into Ukraine.

“There are no bad intentions towards our neighbours. And I would also advise them not to escalate the situation, not to introduce any restrictions. We fulfil all our obligations and will continue to fulfil them,” Putin said in televised remarks, reports The Indian Express

In a key development, a fire at Europe's biggest nuclear plant ignited by Russian shelling has been extinguished. Ukrainian authorities said Russian forces have taken control of the site. Ukraine's state nuclear regulator said that no changes in radiation levels have been recorded so far. It said staff are studying the site to check for other damage.
