President Vladimir Putin officially bestowed Prime Minister Narendra Modi with Russia's highest civilian honour, the Order of St. Andrew the Apostle. The ceremony recognised Modi's 'exceptional' contributions to advancing the strategic partnership between Russia and India.
"Honoured to receive the Order of St. Andrew the Apostle. I dedicate it to the people of India," PM Modi said. Established in 1698 by Tsar Peter the Great, the Order of St. Andrew is the highest order of chivalry in Russia. It holds deep historical and cultural significance as a symbol of honour and achievement.
The badge of the order is a golden cross with blue enamel, featuring a crucified Saint Andrew the Apostle. It is adorned with a double-headed eagle and a ribbon inscribed with “For Faith and Loyality.”
