Russian President Vladimir Putin is set to arrive in India, hoping to use the two nations' decades-long friendship to push for deals in civilian nuclear cooperation, military hardware and trade expansion between the booming economies. Putin, who will be the guest of honor at India's January 26 Republic Day celebrations during his two-day visit starting Thursday, is looking to cash in on Cold War ties that bound the two countries for years - but then slackened as India's burgeoning market attracted other players. India was a key customer for Soviet weapons, purchasing billions of dollars' worth of military hardware. Russia hopes that relationship will continue, especially since India has become the world's foremost buyer of military equipment.
