Bengaluru: China is indeed at the receiving end. After India’s befitting response to Galwan clashes by banning 59 apps, Russia has now reminded China of how it lost Vladivostok in 1860. 

The Russian Embassy in India tweeted a video celebrating it. 


As reported by Republic TV, Prime Minister Narendra Modi spoke to Russian President Vladimir Putin and congratulated him on the successful completion of the vote on constitutional amendments in Russia. 

It should be noted that the victory in the referendum allows Putin two additional possible six-year terms as President after 2024. Lauding the celebrations marking the 75th anniversary of the victory in the Second World War, the PM termed the participation of an Indian contingent in the Victory Day Parade on June 24 as a symbol of "abiding friendship" between India and Russia.

The website also notes that India has decided to procure 21 MiG-29 fighter jets and seek upgradation of existing 59 MiG-29 fighter aircraft from Russia. This is estimated to cost Rs.7,418 crore. During his recent visit to Moscow, Defence Minister Rajnath Singh revealed that all Indian proposals had received a positive response from the Russian side.

A note on the incident:

It all began when Indian soldiers dismantled a Chinese tent at Patrol Point 14, which is close to the mouth of the Galwan river. It was reported that the tent had been dismantled following a meeting between Lieutenant General Harinder Singh, who commands the Leh-based XIV Corps, and Major-General Lin Liu, the head of the Xinjiang military district

But just within two days, it should be noted that the PLA set up a fresh tent at Patrol Point 14. This was in clear violation of the agreement.

So, the tent was burned down. Col Santosh Babu also laid down his life. His father, proud of his son’s martyrdom added that it is a privilege to die for the country.
