Nation's top diplomat, Foreign Secretary Harsh Vardhan Shringla is set to fly to Russia for a series of high-level meetings in Moscow scheduled on coming Wednesday (17 February) as India looks to reinvigorate the long and deep bilateral ties, reports Times of India.

Shringla would be engaging with his Russian counterpart Igor Morgulov and is likely to brief the Russian establishment on the India-China disengagement understanding. The two sides are also likely to exchange views on President Joseph Biden led new administration at the White House, and China and Myanmar.

It should also be noted that Shringla's visit to Russia comes at a time when India is deepening its engagement with Europe and the Russian-European ties have been boiling. The two sides are likely to get a measure of their differing perceptions.

During his visit, Shringla will also be addressing the Diplomatic Academy in Moscow for a big canvas view of the India-Russian relationship.

Meanwhile, it should also be noted that Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov is also expected to visit India later this year.
