Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi is likely to hold formal talks with the President of Russia today. He will also visit an exhibition on nuclear cooperation.

There are growing demands on the government to free many soldiers who claim they were wrongly recruited into their army by Russian operatives. The matter came to the fore when Hyderabad MP Asaduddin Owaisi made the request, sparking outrage from the people he represents. The Ministry of External Affairs admitted that there were few such recruitment difficulties.

According to recent reports, at least 50 Indian men are desperately fighting on the front lines of the war. Four heartbreaking accidents are shared, adding to the grim reality of the situation.

At a recent political rally, Mr. Owaisi slammed the government's decision to send Indians to Russia and Israel's conflict zones, calling them 'cannon fodder'. The Ministry of External Affairs has verified that around 9-10 brave souls who contacted the embassy directly have been safely brought back to India, thanks to the embassy's negotiations with the Kremlin. Moreover, The Hindu reported that many others are on the edge of their seats, having obtained their discharge papers and are awaiting the green signal from their superiors to leave the war zone.
