PM Modi Honored by Highest Order of the Russian Federation

After Seoul Peace Prize and UAE’s Highest Civilian Honor, Prime Minister Narendra Modi has been awarded by the highest order of the Russian Federation, i.e., The Order of St Andrew the Apostle.

For “exceptional services in promoting a special & privileged strategic partnership” between India and Russia, PM Modi was awarded the order. The Russian embassy also tweeted about it. They wrote,

@mfa_russia @MEAIndia @IndEmbMoscow”

The Russian government says,

“The Order of St Andrew the Apostle is awarded to outstanding politicians and public figures, as well as other citizens of Russia, for exceptional services…”

Around 1699 by Peter the Great in the 17th century, the Order of St Andrew the Apostle was established, and it is the oldest of Russia’s state decorations.

However, both the highest and the oldest state decoration of Russia, The Order of St Andrew the Apostle was abolished in the erstwhile Soviet Union in 1918 but was re-established in the year 1998.

Before Indian PM Modi, Chinese President Xi Jinping was awarded the Order of St Andrew the Apostle in 2017.

Also, Russian President took to his Twitter handle and posted,

“Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi received the Order of St Andrew for outstanding achievements in promoting partnership with Russia”

In response to that, PM Modi tweeted,

“Honoured to receive this prestigious award. I thank President Putin and the people of Russia.

Foundations of India-Russia friendship are deep & the future of our partnership is bright.

Extensive cooperation between our nations has led to extraordinary outcomes for our citizens.”

He added,

“President Putin remains a source of great strength for the India-Russia friendship.

Under his visionary leadership, bilateral and multilateral cooperation between our nations has scaled new heights.”

Along with the highest order of Russia, Prime Minister Narendra Modi has now been awarded around seven top global awards.

Russian President Calls PM to Show Condolences Over Pulwama Attack

Russian President Calls PM to Show Condolences Over Pulwama Attack

Yesterday night, President of Russia Vladimir Putin called Prime Minister of India Narendra Modi to show his sincere condolences over the Pulwama terror attack and also conveyed the solidarity of his country with New Delhi in its battle against terror.

A statement from the Prime Minister’s Office said that in his response, Prime Minister Modi thanked Mr. Putin for steadfast support of Russia for India’s efforts to protect its interests against cross-border terror attacks.

Leader Vladimir Putin and PM Modi recently had a meet in Sochi City in Russia.

Later in their telephonic conversation, PM Modi recommenced India’s commitment to strengthening bilateral cooperation in the action against terrorism as support of the privileged and special strategic partnership.

Then in further communication, both leaders agreed that the “concerned” must end all assistance to terrorism.

Also, they both agreed that the growing cooperation between the two countries would take their privileged and special strategic partnership from strength to strength.

Later Russian President reiterated the invitation to attend the Eastern Economic Forum in Vladivostok later this year to PM Modi.

The statement added, PM Modi welcomed the invitation and emphasized the significance of growing economic cooperation, including in the Russian Far East within the two countries.

Moreover, Dmitry Peskov, Press Secretary of the Russian President told reporters earlier in the day:

“Russia calls on India and Pakistan for restraint in connection with the border incident.”

Dmitry Peskov said that Moscow is following the development of events.

A Kremlin spokesman said,

“We are extremely concerned about the news coming in, we are very closely monitoring the situation and, of course, we urge all parties to show restraint.”

Currently, after Pakistan’s audacious lie about not using F-16 to attack India’s military bases, media has found the ultimate evidence that contradicted the country’s claim.

Asif Ghafoor, Director General ISPR Major General of Pakistan, had denied that Pakistan’s forces had used F-16 during its attempt to target military bases in Nowshera sector India.

The DG ISPR shared,

“After PAF decided on targets, two Indian jets entered Pakistani airspace and the PAF faced them. The two planes were shot down — one fell in our space and the other on their side.”

He added,

“Pakistan did not use F-16 in any activity today.”

However, many images were shown part of the Amraam missile proving that not only did Pakistan use F-16 but also they had come with the complete intention of attacking India’s military bases. This is the claim which Imran Khan, Prime Minister of Pakistan has denied.

Pakistan was already ordered by the United States that not to use the F-16s over any aggression, though, it appears that Pakistan has broken that agreement as well.
