On November 8, S. Jaishankar, the Indian foreign minister, will travel to Russia to meet with Sergey Lavrov. Russia made the news today, stating that the conversations will focus on both bilateral relations and global developments.

The visit occurs at a pivotal time in the current conflict in Ukraine, when Moscow and Kiev have each claimed the other is preparing to use radioactive dirty bombs.

Shortly after alleging that the regime of Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy had ordered the building of a radioactive dirty bomb, which is in the final stages, Moscow stated it planned to conduct annual drills of its nuclear forces. Additionally, it implied that he might enjoy the support of Western supporters of Ukraine.

The Russian defence minister called his NATO counterparts to address the situation on Sunday. The assertions have been debunked, and the western countries that support Ukraine accuse Russia of inciting fear.

According to Ukraine, it is a Russian pretext for escalating the conflict.

Rajnath Singh, the Union’s minister of defence, told his Russian counterpart Sergei Shoigu yesterday that no party in the conflict in Ukraine should deploy nuclear weapons.

The thought of using nuclear or radiological weapons goes against the fundamental principles of humanity, he said Mr. Shoigu, thus the nuclear option “should not be resorted to by any party,” the administration said in a statement.
