Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Monday congratulated Russian President Vladimir Putin after he secured landslide victory in Russia’s election.

Taking to his official X account, PM Modi said, “Warm congratulations to H.E. Mr. Vladimir Putin on his re-election as the President of the Russian Federation. Look forward to working together to further strengthen the time-tested Special & Privileged Strategic Partnership between India and Russia in the years to come.”

The Russian Embassy in India also reacted to PM Modi’s post on the social media handle.

Vladimir Putin secured an unprecedented fifth term as president of Russia on Monday, as the country’s election commission announced the results of a vote in which he faced no serious challenges.

Putin claimed his overwhelming margin was proof of Russians “trust” and “hopes” in him, while politicians across Europe rejected the vote as a sham and condemned Russia’s efforts to stage elections in occupied parts of Ukraine that it claims as its own territory.
