Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Wednesday will embark on a two-day visit to Russia to attend the 16th India-Russia Annual Summit.
During the visit major agreements in defence, economy and nuclear sector are expected be inked, riding high on success of last year's summit held in New Delhi.
In December 2014, 20 deals worth over $100 billion was inked in less than 24 hours showing "India's partnership with Russia is incomparable," as PM Modi tweeted then.
A big boost to Modi's 'Make In India' in defence is expected as a deal on the joint-production of 200 Kamov-226T helicopters may be the highlight. India is also likely to buy five S-400 Defence Missile Systems.
In a move to scale up cooperation in the nuclear energy sector, India and Russia are likely to sign an agreement on Kudankulam units 5 and 6 during Prime Minister Narendra Modi's visit to the Eurasian country from Wednesday.
Sources said the government is also planning to make optimum use of the available nuclear sites in various states to accommodate more atomic reactors to meet energy-starved country's growing needs.
Modi is scheduled to visit Russia from December 23-24 to hold an annual summit with Russian President Vladimir Putin in Moscow.

India will also offer a site in Andhra Pradesh to Russia for a nuclear plant. The two countries are likely to sign an agreement for the two units with provisions for involvement of India's private sector in the project including in supply of various components.
Russia has been a key partner of India in the civil nuclear energy sector. In the last summit between Modi and Putin, it was decided that Russia will build at least 12 nuclear reactors in India by 2035.
A free trade agreement is also expected to be signed between the two sides.
An 18-member business delegation will take part in an interactive session in Russia during Modi's visit to Moscow.
A 34-member strong delegation from Russia and President Vladimir Putin are expected to take part in the session.
This is Modi's second visit to Russia after assuming office in May 2014.
