His delegation included federal ministers Asad Umar, Shah Mahmood Qureshi, Fawad Chaudhry, and Hammad Azhar, among other officials. In response to Russian President Vladimir Putin’s invitation, the prime minister landed in Moscow on Wednesday for a two-day formal visit.

The visit takes place at a time when Russia and Ukraine are embroiled in a military confrontation.

Russian forces launched missiles at several Ukrainian cities and landed troops on the country’s southern coast on Thursday, according to officials and news reports, after President Vladimir Putin authorized what he defined as a “special military operation” in the country’s east.
