Indian Ambassador denied reports of tensions with Russia on military-technical cooperation

7
Moscow and New Delhi have no controversy over military-technical cooperation, and various media reports on this are speculations, reports RIA News statement by the Indian ambassador to Moscow, Pankaj Saran.




There is no tension on the issue of military-technical cooperation between Russia and India. Our cooperation is based on full understanding, has a long history success, and we have a very close dialogue with Moscow on this issue. We are confident that military-technical cooperation will continue in the same vein,
said saran.

Earlier it was reported that Moscow suspected the Indian side of admitting representatives of the US Navy to the Russian nuclear submarine of the 971I project, which since 2011, under the name Chakra, is leased from the Indian Navy. The head of the FSMTC of Russia Dmitry Shugaev called these messages, based on the stories of some sources, "stuffing."

Those publications that appear in the media, they are inspired by stakeholders. We hope that the media will be more responsible and objective in their publications and will not distort the facts
said the Indian ambassador.

He noted that now New Delhi with its Russian partners "is concentrating more on producing more in India using Russian technologies ... thus continuing the history of past successes."

One of these successes was the joint production of the BrahMos missile. We have other projects that are currently being discussed, and it is planned that all of them will be implemented through the government program in in India. These projects are actively developing,
added saran.

    I believe them. They have good relations in this area with everyone. How is it possible to understand this variety?

    They have good relations with everyone because the local bureaucrats have learned not so long ago to cut loot. The general military-technical line of theirs was always tied to Moscow, but now, according to any tenders, apparently, kickbacks started and various French, Koreans and even Americans began to appear (Rafal, Panther, Shershen, etc.) ...

      And what - before, during the USSR, there were no kickbacks in India and Indian officials didn’t have files to “cut” the military budget? And did it not occur to you that the products manufactured in the USSR were better and cost several times cheaper than the current Russian defense industry products?

        That is yes. But firstly, you won’t get much budget for quality and cheap products. Secondly - I strongly doubt that Voentorg gave kickbacks to the Indians. The USSR had other methods of supplying weapons. And thirdly, even if the products of the Russian military-industrial complex are inferior to the Soviet in quality or cost (in terms of modern money), then against the background of the products of the countries of the West and K, it is still much cheaper and better. So the ratio of quality and price of Russian products and analogues of other countries now is about the same as Soviet and their analogues then. So in terms of price / quality, the Indians now have the same choice as they did under the USSR. Note, I do not put an equal sign m / y Russian and Soviet products, just the ratio has not changed.

          Make a bigger price tag, marketing promotion and sell junk in good packaging. Then you can roll back more. Like so.

          And what did they invent now? Work for centuries proven schemes.

    A good market, with local features and color, of course ... But it's a shame to lose it by stupidity and give way to the "partners".
