in­DiA AnD ruS­SiA Are coun­tries that hold a spe­cific place in the hu­man civ­i­liza­tion. In­dia and Rus­sia have en­tered the 21st cen­tury as mat­ter-of­course strate­gic part­ners. In to­day’s multi-po­lar world in­dia and rus­sia pos­sess eco­nomic, sci­en­tific, cul­tural, mil­i­tary and in­dus­trial re­sources for de­vel­op­ment of full-scale co­op­er­a­tion. In ad­di­tion, the two coun­tries draw on abun­dant ex­pe­ri­ence of 70-year friend­ship and mu­tu­ally ben­e­fi­cial co­op­er­a­tion with­out any es­sen­tial con­tra­dic­tions and all the more con­flicts.

One of the fac­tors, that char­ac­terise ac­tu­ally es­tab­lished part­ner­ship bi­lat­eral re­la­tions, is a unique mil­i­tary-and-tech­ni­cal co­op­er­a­tion cov­er­ing all spheres of de­vel­op­ment and sup­ply of weapons and mil­i­tary equip­ment, in­clud­ing naval con­stituent.

It is re­mark­able that CDB ME ‘Ru­bin’ stood at the ori­gins of such co­op­er­a­tion and made a size­able con­tri­bu­tion to the cre­ation of the In­dian Navy.

On the 1st of Septem­ber 1965, the Soviet union and the repub­lic of in­dia signed the first agree­ment for the de­liv­ery of naval equip­ment – four Pro­ject I641 diesel-elec­tric sub­marines, five Pro­ject 159E corvettes and five Pro­ject 368P mo­tor boats. The agree­ment also en­vis­aged ren­der­ing Soviet tech­ni­cal as­sis­tance for the

In­dia re­ceived ten Pro­ject 877EKM diesel-elec­tric sub­marines from Rus­sia and Ru­bin will be in­volved in the se­cond medium re­fits of Pro­ject 877EKM sub­marines both in Rus­sia and in In­dia
