Keeping in mind the Cold War period, Indo-Russian relations were initially marked by indifference but were later considered special. The disintegration of the Soviet Union in 1991 and the emergence of Russia as its successor led to a saga of drastic changes not only in the domestic arena, but also in foreign policy. This book highlights and traces various aspects of Indo-Russian relations since their evolution, including the major developments that occurred in this area. The focus has been on convergence of interests in post-Cold War period, including the global process of change and development, the Kashmir-Chechnya comparison, and the areas of convergence between the two countries.
