Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Monday met Russian President Vladimir Putin at the 21st India- Russia Annual Summit at Hyderabad House. This is the first in-person between the two leaders since they met on the sidelines of the BRICS summit in 2019 in Brasilia. 

There have been six telephonic conversations between the two leaders since then apart from the virtual meetings that they've attended for multilateral summits.

In his opening remarks at the annual summit meeting with the Russian President here, PM Modi said that the "special and privileged strategic partnership" between the two continues to become stronger.

"Despite the challenges posed by COVID, there is no change in the pace of growth of India-Russia relations. Our special and privileged strategic partnership continues to become stronger," he said.

The visit is in continuation of the tradition of annual summits held alternately in India and Russia.
