India has begun the process of identifying its citizens who have been detained by Russian intelligence agents.
According to the Information and Broadcasting Ministry, the ministry is in the process to create a list of Indians who have had their citizenship taken away, and is also seeking their extradition.
India has had an unusually low number of Indians detained in Russia, which has claimed that its agents are responsible for the murder of Russian journalists and activists.
However, India has been accused of providing cover for the Kremlin’s agents to carry out human rights violations and espionage against Indian citizens, according to human rights organisations.
According a 2014 report by the International Crisis Group, India is one of the countries in the world where the Russian intelligence services have been active.
The report said: India has not been the only country that has had to deal with Russian intelligence since the 1990s.
The report also said that India has suffered from the same kind of “humanitarianism” as Russia, with its political leaders blaming Moscow for a range of human rights abuses.
“India has a long history of political instability.
The country is the poorest in the Asia-Pacific region and is not an exception to the rule of being an authoritarian country,” the report said.
The latest move comes after the United States issued a blanket ban on all Americans and permanent residents of Russia, and imposed sanctions on top officials in the country.
India and Russia have a long and strained relationship.
The Indian diplomat to Russia, V.S. Narasimhan, was expelled in 2015 and subsequently imprisoned on a terrorism charge.
