NEW DELHI -- Describing Russia's invasion of Ukraine as a "direct threat" to Europe's security, European Commission President Ursula von der Leyen said on Monday that the war also holds implications for the Indo-Pacific region.

"We will make sure that the unprovoked and unjustified aggression against Ukraine will be a strategic failure," she said in her keynote address to open the 7th Raisina Dialogue, India's annual flagship conference on geopolitics and geoeconomics.
