Prime Minister Narendra Modi arrived in Russia for a two-day visit on Wednesday. The visit is aimed at strengthening the somewhat strained relations between both the countries.

As Modi walked onto the tarmac after landing in Moscow, he committed what seems to be a minor protocol gaffe. The Prime Minister started walking almost at the same time as band started playing the Indian anthem. An official immediately pulled the PM back to his spot so that the tune could finish.
