Indian-Russian relations have been based on a mutually beneficial partnership for decades. Over the years this relation has witnessed both systolic and diastolic phases in the backdrop of constantly changing international dynamics. The most significant part of this relation is mutual trust and mutual respect of each country’s freedom to perform skilled manoeuvring in their foreign relations with other countries. The Soviet Union’s support to the development of India’s post-independence economy and New Delhi’s support to Moscow’s post-USSR dynamics and difficulties constitute manifestations of shared goals. Currently economic and defence ties between India and Russia are rising to new heights. New dimensions are explored in various geo-economical and geo-strategic engagements, providing this time-tested relation a new dynamic edge. However, in the matrix of global politics certain challenges may impact future relations and influence future probabilities. Skilful steering in bilateral relations is needed so as to reinforce solidarity and cooperation.
