        He probably meant those so-called awards, such as anniversary ones for different dates and events that occupy only a place on the tunic. Where you could get by with a simple letter and valuable gifts.
        Although the ringing of medals, bells or bells is pleasant when marching in the parade. Good material is used.

      And even in Primorye. It would be good for them to spin here in February when the Chinese frosts begin (they will be baptized for Epiphany).
      Today they flew away. What is interesting, when the news passed that the exercises began, I expressed bewilderment about the delivery of their units by charter flights. They flew off today with their military vehicles (I saw a couple of their IL 76s at the site). We are still carefully read and, what is important, they respond to criticism (well, even if only at the cordon)

    Hindus, like the Chinese, are just temporary travel companions in Russia.

      It's not like that here
      Geopolitics is still a fairly accurate science - and as Napoleon or Bismarck said, geography is a verdict

      China is a natural ally of both Russia and all of Eurasia against the Western aggressors and the United States with their Fed - and this is now 1
      India is a natural ally of both Russia and all of Eurasia against China - when the threat of the West goes away

    But India is more distant from our interests. And it has already begun to make claims, if you look at some statements. In addition, all its weapons are continuous vinaigrette. The policy does not allow the choice of weapons from only one country, no matter how good it is.

    Russia and India, together represent a Force that can calm China. Solving China alone is problematic. Pakistan will dry out automatically.
    Thanks for the next .. In real life, a little higher.

    Why should Russia reassure China, and even India? We have no strategic interests with India, especially against China. Not at all. Even against the United States. But they themselves have more than one claim to each other. As with Pakistan, by the way, too. We should not even try to take sides. But on the contrary, it is worth trying to rally them through BRICS.
