India-Russia: Why Relations Between the Two Have Advanced After Years
But there is a larger picture behind these meetings and that's the growing influence of China. Over the past year, we have seen several 2+2 dialogues with the US, Japan and Australia, all of which are QUAD members.

In today’s episode, we will discuss the relationship between the long time allies India and Russia and what came out of the recent meeting.
