On February 18, H.E. Mr Alexander Kadakin, Ambassador of Russia to India, visited the headquarters of the Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO) in Bangalore, the capital of Karnataka, during his working visit to South India.

There he had a conversation with Dr K.Radhakrishnan, Chairman of the Board of Directors, and ISRO senior management. Mr Nikolai Listopadov, Consul General of Russia, Mr Fyodor Rozovsky, head of “Rossotrudnichestvo” representation, Mr Alexander Chinyaev, “Sistema” company representative, and Mr Alexander Bondarenko, “NIS-GLONASS” representative also attended the meeting.

The sides favoured broader Russian-Indian long-standing cooperation in space exploration in all areas. Alexander Kadakin focused on establishing coordination between two countries in the use of the Russian navigation system GLONASS for various purposes. The conversation also touched upon manned space flights, the Indian Moon exploration program “Chandrayaan-2”, and continuation of the youth satellites program.

2015 will mark 40 years since the launch of the first Indian Earth satellite “Aryabhata” with the Russian help. The Ambassador proposed to celebrate this important event by erecting a memorial in Bangalore. “40 years ago India made the first step in space. Now it has become one of the world’s leading space powers. Russia is proud to be a part of it and is ready to continue close cooperation with friendly India in space exploration”, stressed Alexander Kadakin.

Dr K.Radhakrishnan and other scientists wholeheartedly backed this idea.
