India’s Prime Minister Narendra Modi began a two-day visit to Russia, his first since the Ukraine invasion, complicating ties between the longtime allies and pushing Russia closer to India’s rival, China. Modi will meet President Vladimir Putin in Vladivostok, their first meeting in Russia since 2019.

Modi skipped the recent Shanghai Cooperation Organization summit in Kazakhstan.
