Dr Suchkov discusses External Affairs Minister (EAM) Dr S. Jaishankar’s meetings in Moscow with his counterpart Sergey Lavrov and Russia’s Vice Prime Minister-Industry and Trade Denis Manturov, the EAM saying “the Ukraine conflict was a dominant feature. Insofar as specific initiatives pertaining to issues like food grains and fertilizer shipments are concerned, or any other problem for that matter, India will be as helpful as we can be.
