      And for some reason Russia was not invited to participate in these exercises, apparently the Indians do not need our help on this issue.

        If only they did not collide with each other, there are many eccentrics among those invited.

          Yeah ... Too many participants.
          We conduct exercises with the Chinese, and okay. And in such a crowd - nafig-nafig. You can’t work out the interaction in the crowd, and there is no need to conduct such exercises anymore.

        hi Well, in the article everything is written (no google) "Milan" is regional, and although this is not advertised, anti-Chinese teachings. Where do you see the opportunity for Russia to participate?

        Japan and China also do not participate. Probably, they are also not important players in the Indian Ocean ... Figs with them, with the Japanese, where is the USA ?!

    Hindus are very interested in the technology of Russian weapons, such a situation is being negotiated for the purchase, they are deciding something, but as it comes to signing the contract, they immediately insert a clause on the transfer of technical documentation. They do not shun fine blackmail, we’ll buy from competitors.
