Photo exhibitions dedicated to Chechnya have opened in five largest cities in India. They are organized by the Russian Center of Science and Culture in India with assistance provided by the Indian Association of Friendship with Foreign Countries in the context of the presidential elections in Chechnya, scheduled for October 5.
Photos taken in Chechnya are exhibited in New Delhi, Mombai, Calcutta, Chennai, and Trivandrum.
Indian Labor Minister Sahib Singh Verma participated in the opening ceremony of the photo exhibition in New Delhi. He said the exhibition gives Indians the opportunity to visualize and understand the processes aimed at the normalization of the economic, social and political situation, which are currently under way in Chechnya.
The exhibition also demonstrates that Russian and Indian people are facing a similar threat of international terrorism. In the fight against terrorism, both countries assume an uncompromising stand and reject the double-standard policy, announced the Indian minister.
The Federation Council may gather for the meeting on October 4 to consider new laws on the accession of new territories to Russia after the referenda
