India will NEVER EVER resort to any action detrimental to the interests of Russia.We have developed everlasting friendly relations with them
Russia is reliable and trusted friend f India since Independence.Russia has been using its veto power in Security council of UNO in favour of India on Kashir Issue when USA and UK,France were favouring Pakistan on Kashmir issue,During Bangala Desh war(East Pakistan) it stood with Indian Army when USA sent its 7th fleet towards Bay of Bengal to help Pakistan.Therefore we must have close relation with Russia all time.

India needs a helping Hand or Big brother when Being bullied by other nations , so Russia comes as the Big brotheror the Helping Hand for India.

Russia has been a friend in need for India. India should reciprocate the relation.
Why no sanctions against Pakistan? Pakistan is openly supporting terrorists! Terrorism which caused millions of innocent lives!
