Modi will attend a private dinner hosted by Putin in the evening. The Prime Minister is on a two-day visit to Russia on July 8 and 9 at the invitation of the Russian President for the 22nd India-Russia Bilateral Summit.

Russian President Vladimir Putin will host a private dinner for Prime Minister Narendra Modi at his dacha (Russian word for country house or cottage) on the outskirts of Moscow on Monday. Modi will arrive at Moscow’s Vnukovo-II International Airport at around 5.30 pm on Monday, where he will be given a guard of honour. He will then proceed to his hotel, where Russian artists will perform Garba to welcome him. Modi will then attend a private dinner hosted by Putin in the evening. The Prime Minister is on a two-day visit to Russia on July 8 and 9 at the invitation of the Russian President for the 22nd India-Russia bilateral summit.

Over the next two days, both Modi and Putin will review the full range of bilateral ties, including in areas such as defence, investment, energy cooperation, education, culture and people-to-people exchanges. Notably, he will interact with over 100 Indian-origin students of Kendriya Vidyalaya in Moscow on Tuesday. He will also lay a wreath at the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier at the Kremlin on July 9 and visit the Rosatom pavilion at the Exhibition Centre in Moscow.

This will be PM Modi’s first visit to Russia after Russia invaded Ukraine in February 2022. His last visit to Russia was in 2019 when he attended an economic conference in the Far East city of Vladivostok. Notably, the 21st India-Russia annual bilateral summit was held in New Delhi in December 2021, when the Russian President visited India.
