Trust, mutual understanding and compatibility, and
common interests in the international system remained
the pillars of Indo-Russian relations for seventy years. It brought them
closer to each other to cooperate in the areas of defense, trade and
technology. After the collapse of the Soviet Union, both New Delhi and
Moscow experienced a low-level relation, but since the coming of Putin,
relations between the two have taken a new turn. Besides strategic
cooperation, the nations joined hands to make policies for better
diplomacy, multipolar world, countering insurgencies, climate change,
technology and defense cooperation and terrorism. Besides this strong
partnership and common interests, Indo-Russia is facing multiple
challenges, particularly in the wake of changing dynamics in Asia politics.
This research intends to analyze the history of the indo-Russian strategic
partnership with a specific focus on Putins era.
