External Affairs Minister S Jaishankar will visit Russia on 22 and 23 March to attend a meeting of the Russia-Indian-China trilateral, Kudashev said.

"Those having doubts over India's approach on Kashmir can go there, we don't have any doubt," he said on not being invited to visit Jammu and Kashmir.

It is manufactured by Almaz-Antey and has been in service in Russia since 2007.
