Statement by the Russian Embassy on the conferment posthumously of the Padma Bhushan Award on late Ambassador Extraordinary and Plenipotentiary Alexander M. Kadakin

It is with great satisfaction that we learned about the conferment posthumously of the Padma Bhushan Award on late Ambassador Extraordinary and Plenipotentiary Alexander M. Kadakin, thus perpetuating the memory of this outstanding Russian diplomat, who was a true friend of India and an architect of our time-tested special and privileged strategic partnership.

We extend our heartwarming appreciation to the Indian Government for this profound tribute to the late Ambassador, who devoted almost 30 years of his entire brilliant diplomatic career to India and regarded her as his Karma-bhumi. He will undoubtedly go down in Russia’s and India’s history as a diplomat par excellence and a respected statesman of great wisdom with many outstanding faculties, whose selfless and devoted service to the benefit of Russia-India relationship can hardly be overestimated.

We are firmly resolved to the task of preserving the legacy of late Alexander Kadakin and further strengthening a close friendship and partnership between Russia and India.
