Sanctions imposed on Russia over its invasion of Ukraine are unlikely to affect India's defence imports, NITI Aayog member VK Saraswat said on Wednesday. He added that Russia possesses inherent military strength and is self-sufficient in military equipment manufacturing. "The reserve is very high. These kinds of short-term sanctions are not likely to create any problems for India," he said.
