New Delhi: Prime Minister Narendra Modi dialled Russian President Vladimir Putin to congratulate him on his recent re-election, emphasizing the commitment to bolster the long-standing strategic partnership between India and Russia.

In a telephonic conversation on Wednesday, Prime Minister Modi and President Putin reaffirmed their dedication to enhancing the India-Russia ‘Special and Privileged Strategic Partnership’.

Prime Minister Modi took to social media platform X to share insights from their discussion, stating, “Spoke with President Putin and congratulated him on his re-election as the President of the Russian Federation. We agreed to work together to further deepen and expand the India-Russia Special & Privileged Strategic Partnership in the years ahead.”

Earlier, on Monday, PM Modi conveyed his well wishes to President Putin via a post on X, expressing eagerness to reinforce the strategic partnership and people-to-people ties between the two nations.

“Warm congratulations to H.E. Mr. Vladimir Putin on his re-election as the President of the Russian Federation,” PM Modi posted, underscoring his commitment to strengthening the enduring Special & Privileged Strategic Partnership between India and Russia in the years to come.

According to Russia-based TASS, Putin secured victory in the presidential elections on Sunday, garnering 87.17% of the votes, with 70% of electoral protocols processed. Nikolai Kharitonov of the Communist Party of the Russian Federation trailed in second place with 4.1%, followed by Vladislav Davankov of the New People Party with 4.8% votes.

Comparatively, Putin received a higher percentage of votes than in the 2018 elections, where he obtained 76.69% of the total votes. The performance of other candidates in the current elections was reportedly lower than that of previous competitors.

This election marked the debut of remote electronic voting in Russia’s presidential elections, with residents in 28 regions utilizing the federal platform, and Moscow residents voting on their own platform. The final turnout for online voting on the federal platform reached 94%, with approximately 4.4 million people casting their votes online. In Moscow, nearly 3.7 million electronic ballots were issued, including those who utilized special terminals at polling stations.

President Putin, who has served four terms as Russian President, was first elected in 2000 and subsequently re-elected in 2004, 2012, and 2018.

The reaffirmation of bilateral ties between India and Russia underscores the mutual commitment to fostering cooperation and partnership in various spheres, consolidating the longstanding friendship between the two nations.
