Unofficial relations in the 1920s were influenced heavily by inner-Argentine affairs in the 1920s. The Soviet Union had established official diplomatic relations with Argentina on June 5, 1946. Argentina has an embassy in Moscow and Russia has an embassy in Buenos Aires.
In April 2015, Russian president Vladimir Putin publicly supported Cristina Fernandez and Argentina's claims to the Falkland Islands. President Putin is currently in agreements over leasing 12 Sukhoi Su-24 Fencer aircraft to Buenos Aires in return for beef and wheat.
Since Macri took power in late 2015, Argentina have been searching a closer relationship with Europe and the United States, making a difference with previous administration international policy, where Russia was one the closest allies.
