New Delhi: External Affairs Minister S Jaishankar is set to visit Russia this week. The visit is likely to start from July 8, sources revealed. As India and Russia both have a common goal of a multi-polar world, they are equally important for each other in fulfilling each other’s national interests.

This above-mentioned visit will also strengthen each other as valued partners with a friendship built on deep mutual trust.

India’s footprint in the Russian Far East and in the Arctic is also set to expand. Connectivity projects might get a significant boost too.
