India is undeniably Russia's time-tested dost: this has been proved by numerous instances throughout this year, including by the speeches of Russian President Vladimir Putin himself.
Here are five instances from 2023 when Russian President Vladimir Putin praised India and its Prime Minister Narendra Modi:
“There are no borders for Russia, just like there are no borders for any other civilizations like India and China.Take a look how many Chinese people are living all over the world or how many Indians are living all over the world. They all interact with each other, and this is good.”
“It is impossible to imagine that [Prime Minister Narendra Modi] could be intimidated, intimidated or forced to take any actions, steps, decisions that are contrary to the national interests of India and the Indian people. I am just looking at what is happening from the outside, and sometimes, to be honest, I am even surprised by his tough position on defending the national interests of the Indian state.”
“It is not Russia that is reducing settlements in dollars, the West is doing everything with its own hands, Putin said, noting that the share of the ruble in foreign trade settlements had already doubled.”
“The West is trying to create an enemy out of everyone who does not agree with their monopoly, everyone is at risk — even India, but the Indian leadership is acting independently in the interests on its nation.”
“I think that we should emulate many of our partners, for example, India. They are focused on the manufacture and use of Indian-made vehicles. I think that Prime Minister Modi is doing the right thing in promoting the Make in India programme. He is right.”
