New Delhi, India, December 1: Moscow is due to send a list of over 500 items for potential delivery, including parts for cars, planes, and trains to India, according to MEA spokesperson Arindam Bagchi, who addressed mediapersons in his weekly briefing on Thursday.I'm not sure if there is an agreement as such or if even such items have been provided.This is a common feature, and nothing else should be incorporated into it, he said.Nonetheless, he said, We have regular discussions with Russia on how to develop trade, how to grow it, and this has been going on for many years.As per a Reuters study, sanctions-squeezed Russia sent India a list of items that averages around 14 pages, including car engine parts such as pistons, oil pumps, and ignition coils.There is also demand for bumpers, seatbelts, and infotainment equipment in Russia.Since almost all planes are of foreign origin, supplies are running short.Automobile parts are also in demand, with major automakers leaving the market, according to a source in Russia's automobile sales industry. According to a paper published by Reuters, eastern sanctions and self-sanctioning by certain manufacturers have hampered industrial enterprises in 2022 in terms of raw materials used to make paper, paper bags, and consumer packaging, as well as textiles including yarns and dyes.According to Reuters, the list contains nearly 200 metallurgy products.As the Russia-Ukraine conflict has dominated the world's highest diplomatic arena, India has pressed for action and diplomacy in the face of the West, and Bagchi said, Today is the first day of our presidency, and that many activities have been planned to mark it.Several of them have already occurred. The Hornbill Festival in Kohima puts a special emphasis on the G20.Today, 100 monuments are being specially illuminated, including some UNESCO World Heritage Sites, and citizens are being encouraged to participate in a selfie campaign, according to a MEA spokeswoman.Russia is a G20 member and therefore we expect them to be involved.I would not be allowed to say more.Bagchi said the alliance must unite on various issues that are impacting the world.
