«Today, both Russia and India face same challenges and work together to contain the spread of infection while securing the interests of our citizens, many of whom face difficulties while away from home. Our leaders, President Vladimir Putin and Prime Minister Narendra Modi are in personal touch over this matter», said Amb. Kudashev.<br />
<br />
«Today we saw off over 400 Russian nationals on Moscow-bound airplane. This was a fourth special flight to bring our compatriots home.

In this regard, I would like to thank our partners in MEA, DGCA as well as local administrations and police of various states for their kind support and selfless effort in these challenging times», highlighted the top Russian diplomat.<br />
