Fact-check: Politicians and propagandists circulate false narratives about PM Modi’s visit to Russia

Prime Minister Narendra Modi is on a three-days official visit to Russia and Austria. Influencers, politicians and propagandists have circulated false narratives about PM Modi’s visit to Russia. It is being claimed that Russian President Vladimir Putin did not come to the airport to receive PM Narendra Modi, but he visited the airport to receive Chinese President Xi Jinping. However, D-Intent Data has found that these claims are fake and fabricated, the truth is that PM Modi got a more special Russian welcome than Xi Jinping.

False claims about PM Modi’s visit to Russia

Several users, influencers, politicians, political workers and propagandists have shared false claims about PM Modi’s visit to Russia. They claimed that Russian President Vladimir Putin did not come to the airport to receive PM Narendra Modi. But he visited the airport to receive Chinese President Xi Jinping.

Reacting to the news of Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s arrival in Moscow, Subramanian Swamy (@Swamy39) said. Putin did not come to the airport to receive Modi? Putin had received Xi. As of now, the post has received more than 740k views, 5.3k likes and different types of engagements.

Serial fake news peddler and propagandist Pakistan-based anti-India account @Pak1stTeam on X(Formerly Twitter) has made a post and said. โ€œRussian President Putin received Chinese President Xi Jinping at the Airport but didn’t receive Modi.โ€

Another Pakistan-based anti-India propaganda account @PSYWAROPS has also made a post on X and said. โ€œUpon arriving in Moscow, lndian PM Narendra Modi received the standard welcome from Russian officials.

Truth about PM Modi’s arrival in Russia

As soon as the posts came to our knowledge, we conducted research and found that these claims are nothing but propaganda.

According to reports, Upon arrival in Russia’s Moscow, Prime Minister Narendra Modi accorded Guard of Honour at VNUKOVO-II International Airport. Russia’s First Deputy PM Denis Manturov received PM Modi at the airport. Manturov is senior to the Deputy Prime Minister who received Chinese President Xi Jinping during his visit to Russia in 2023.

The news about the Russian president receiving Chinese President Xi Jinping at the airport during his visit to Russia is false and self-invented. Russian President Putin drives PM Modi in his electric Golf Cart and gives a tour of Presidential House.

Hence, it is evident from D-Intent Data’s fact-check that the claims made by politicians, propagandists and influencers about PM Modi’s visit to Russia are false and fabricated.
