Great to see these friendly and appreciative views of India from Russian President Vladimir Putin on India's Republic Day. https://www.indiatoday.in/india/story/russian-president-vladimir-putin-had-this-to-say-to-pm-modi-on-republic-day-1154596-2018-01-26 reports that Mr. Putin's message to PM Modi was as follows:

Esteemed Mr Prime Minister,

The achievements of your country in economic, social, scientific, technical and other spheres are well known. India makes an important contribution to ensuring international stability and security, to solving issues of the regional and global agenda.

--- end Russian President Putin's message to PM Modi ---

Ravi: As I have publicly written earlier, as an Indian citizen I am very grateful to the people and leaders of the former Soviet Union and now Russian Federation for the help and support they have rendered to India for many decades, shortly after India achieved independence and was rather desperately in need of help in various fields including science, technology and defense. Long live the friendship and co-operation between the people of Russia and India!
