The special and privileged strategic partnership between India and Russia has, over the decades, distinguished itself as a long-standing and proven relationship. The two sides have forged close political, strategic, defense, energy and investment ties, which they continue to promote and nurture through bilateral and multilateral commitments. Having navigated changes in the international system in the past, the two countries are once again tasked with dealing with ongoing developments in the world order, recognizing that these will have a long-term impact on their mutual relations.

As the rise of China disrupts the existing order, the question of the impact of ongoing developments on Indo-Russian relations has grown in importance, especially as the US-China rivalry s ‘intensifies. Given that this comes at a time of sustained rapprochement between Russia and China, even as India is increasingly wary of a more assertive China, the dynamics are only more complicated. The state of their respective relations with the United States introduces another level of complexity into this situation. As the two partners take steps to strengthen their existing relationship, these external factors continue to put pressure on their policies, including the ongoing debate over the Indo-Pacific and the nature of China’s rise.

How will these developments impact the future of Indo-Russian relations, in the light of a rising power in the international system? This webinar aims to explore the political, security, economic and strategic aspects of the subject, to discover the opportunities and challenges for New Delhi and Moscow in a changing world order.

This event is in association with the Valdai Discussion Club.
