Bhatnagar writes: ‘Defence Cooperation’ has been one of the pillars of the multi-dimensional ‘Special and Privileged Strategic Partnership’ between India and Russia. ‘Military Diplomacy’ initiatives focusing on enhanced military to military engagements/interactions and reenergised defence cooperation can rejuvenate the overall bilateral relations; a geopolitical imperative for maintenance of global and regional ‘Balance of Power’ and ‘Bridging of Gaps’.
