The portfolio of military orders of Russia and India exceeds $ 4 billion


Over the years of cooperation, the total volume of deliveries between Russia and India amounted to more than $ 65 billion, while the order book for today exceeds $ 4 billion
- said Goreslavsky at the presentation of the photo album "Russia - India, milestones of military-technical cooperation."

According to him, история military-technical cooperation of Russia and India has nearly six decades.

This cooperation began with a modest episode of the transfer of two Il-14С aircraft in the "Salon" version to the Indian government by the head of the Soviet state. It developed dynamically and today, within the framework of a strategic partnership between the two countries, it shows the widest variety of forms and types of relations: the supply of military and dual-use products, the organization of joint ventures, the licensed production of weapons and military equipment, and the conduct of joint research and development [research and development works] by perspective types weapons
- noted the deputy general director of Rosoboronexport.

Earlier, Goreslavsky said that now Russia and India are conducting 100 research and development work in the defense sector, reports TASS

    But the Americans on the issue of arms trade with India are already stepping on Russia’s heels in terms of transaction volumes and amounts.

        Are you seriously? With the current cost of weapons, 4 billion is one medium contract. For example, today for the 4 division of C-400, ours are asking for more than 4 billion dollars.

          With the Indians, this is also a solid contract, that to sell them 4 S-400 divisions you need to hell how much you bargain, they will bring down the price and require technology. hi

      This once again suggests that you can’t relax and you need to look for other common ground. In trade, shipbuilding. Electronics in India, by the way, on a global level, but which of us heard something about it? Time goes by - it is impossible to expand only in the military sphere. Arsenals in many countries are already clogged.

        Alas, they tend to empty quickly and require replenishment.

        But you should not forget her. So far, only our military-industrial complex is able to give a real "world level", so give them the opportunity to "pull us"

      And there is nothing to calm down and repair on their laurels. It is necessary to work with rolled up sleeves ... And to regain the lost positions.

    “In total, over the years of cooperation, the total volume of deliveries between Russia and India amounted to more than $ 65 billion, and the order portfolio today exceeds $ 4 billion.


    Not a bad volume, even for 60 years.

    Hindus are one of the most greedy people. In greed, they perhaps surpass the Chinese themselves, and perhaps even the Uzbeks. Personally, they bring me nothing but harm, despite the fact that I try to address them politely.
    If Russia manages to benefit from the Indians in the sale of weapons, then I remove the comforter to the masters of trade.

    Now, if it were the so-called guaranteed orders, otherwise the Indians like to replay everything three hundred times, as if they themselves do not really know what they really need.

    The complexity of relations with India is that Indians do NOT want to BUY weapons, but produce them under our license. Judging by how they produce the T-90 "Bhishma", then "not feed the horse." At the 2017 Tank Biathlon, both tanks failed, the only ones of all the teams. There was a lot of noise in the Indian press, but they should in any case thank us for giving us the opportunity to test the tank.

    Hindus are certainly not Chinese. The degree of trust is incomparably higher; everyone understands this. They give us tea, medicine, soul ... We give them tanks, aircraft, reactors, and Hindi rusi bhai bhai ...

    The Russian authorities have already begun to take action in case of possible sanctions by Washington. So, the government allowed the Ministry of Defense, the FSB and the Foreign Intelligence Service to carry out all purchases closed until mid-2018. In addition, on January 18, the Ministry of Finance confirmed that a special bank will be created for the needs of the military-industrial complex (MIC), which will carry out settlements with defense enterprises and credit them.

    An important point is that getting a company on the list does not mean automatic sanctions for cooperation with it - the decision, as has already been said, is made on an individual basis. In an interview with RBC, former senior adviser to OFAC (US Department of the Treasury sanctions division), Atlantic Council expert Brian O'Toole, said that the United States will first try to convince countries such as India or Afghanistan to stop procuring Russian weapons, and if it doesn’t work, they will to sanctions.

    Other experts note that there is a greater chance of avoiding sanctions if the contract for the purchase of weapons was not concluded by the company, but by a government agency, for example, the Ministry of Defense. It is still more difficult to apply sanctions to the whole state or its department due to purchases of Russian weapons.

    For example, Turkey and Russia agreed to supply S-400 anti-aircraft missile systems in the amount of $ 2,5 billion after Trump signed the sanctions law in August. Then, despite the statements by representatives of the United States and NATO in plain text that this transaction does not meet the interests of collective security, at the end of December 2017 the parties signed an agreement on the terms of payment. The deliveries themselves are scheduled for 2020.

    On the other hand, India itself, soon after Trump signed the CAATSA law, began to lose interest in Russian tanks and fighter jets, and it is possible that there is a connection.
