India, Russia to boost defence co-operation

An Indo-Russian defence co-operation proposal for a $600-million (about Rs 2,700-crore) multi-role transport aircraft (MRTA), with equal contribution, is all set to be firmed up, along with Indian role in the fifth-generation fighter aircraft that Russia is working on.
