The Day of Russia was celebrated by the residents of the Indian city of Patna (the capital of the state of Bihar) who organized a youth rally in support of Russia and friendship between our peoples. About two hundred activists took to the street with banners on which the slogan “India is Russia’s brother”, known since Soviet times, was inscribed. The posters featured photographs of Russian President Vladimir Putin, Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi, and Abhay Singh, a native of Patna, who moved to Russia more than 30 years ago and became a member of the Kursk City Assembly in our country. In India, Abhay Singh is considered an expert on dealing with Russia.

The rally participants said that Indian youth grew up on films and books from Russia, loves and respects Russian culture. Activists congratulated the Day of Russia and expressed support for the Russian people.

Recall that India has not joined the anti-Russian sanctions initiated by the United States and the European Union. Moreover, the country increased its purchases of Russian oil, which made it possible to compensate for the loss of revenue from reduced supplies to Europe.
