On February 12, Delhi University hosted a quiz “Druzhba-Dosti 70” devoted to the 70th anniversary of the establishment of diplomatic relations between Russia and India.

The quiz consisted of six rounds and encompassed questions on the history of the establishment of Indo-Russian diplomatic relations as well as the modern development of bilateral interaction. Participants found extremely interesting to answer the questions on biographies and activities of Russian and Indian Ambassadors including late A.M.Kadakin, who passed away on January 26, 2017, in New Delhi and was posthumously awarded Padma Bhushan for the outstanding contribution to the development of ties between the two countries.
