In the following sentence

Mr. Modi, who arrived in Russia on a two-day visit, during which he will also attend the Eastern Economic Forum (EEF), is the first Indian Prime Minister to visit to the Russian Far East region.

I think instead of visit to only visit should be used, because visit something is the correct construction

I would say you're right, a better way to word the sentence is:

Mr. Modi is the first Indian Prime Minister to visit to the Russian Far East region.

Perhaps the journalist was conflating that wording with this one, which is also quite valid and often used:

Mr. Modi is the first Indian Prime Minister to make a visit to the Russian Far East region.

In that sentence, the word to after visit would be required.
