NEW YORK (TASS-DEFENSE): India has started talks with Russia to discuss the upgrade of about 1,000 T-90 tanks, Bloomberg business news agency reported.

A multi-million contract may be signed, the news agency added.

According to sources, the talks began on March 17-18 in New Delhi where India’s Defence Ministry was holding a relevant conference involving Russia.
