Published On: July 09, 2024 - Prime Minister Narendra Modi visits Russia to meet President Vladimir Putin on Monday (July 8) and Tuesday. This will be their 17th meeting since Modi became Prime Minister, but their first since Russia's invasion of Ukraine in February 2022, which led to significant Western sanctions. Modi's last visit to Russia was for the Eastern Economic Forum in Vladivostok in September 2019, while Putin last visited India in December 2021 for the annual bilateral summit. What does it mean for India-Russia ties and what message does it send to the US and China?
