Russia and India will sign a multilateral agreement that includes provisions for increased cooperation among air defence and energy sectors. On 5 October, President Vladimir Putin once again had a cabinet shakeup, appointing Sergei Kiriyenko as the new State Domestic Policy Strategist. Russia vetoed a United Nations (UN) resolution that would end air strikes in Aleppo. President Putin exited nuclear security pact meetings, citing 'hostile actions' by the United States. Following several meetings between President Putin and Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan, the two nations announced future economic, energy, and military cooperation. Russia moved nuclear capable missiles into Kaliningrad, sparking concern among neighbouring states. President Vladimir Putin stated that Russia is ready to join Organisation of the Petroleum Exporting Countries’ (OPEC) effort to limit oil supply. The United States (US) and United Kingdom (UK) are considering additional economic sanctions on Russia following its actions regarding military action in the United Nations Security Council.
