India: We cooperate with the United States in the military-industrial complex, since Russia is to blame

32
The Indian government is discussing mechanisms for a possible circumvention of US sanctions against Russian defense companies and those who cooperate with these companies. The Indian Cabinet unequivocally makes it clear to Washington that it is in principle not going to refuse military-technical cooperation with Moscow, and at the same time it will act in the format of observance of international law.


In The Economic Times notedthat the Russian-Indian military-technical cooperation reached the level of 12 billion dollars a year, and to completely abandon such cooperation is to strike at the security of India itself.

India: We cooperate with the United States in the military-industrial complex, since Russia is to blame

The photo shows the start ceremony of a mountain expedition of the Armed Forces of India, in which 9 female officers will take part for the first time.


At the same time, the publication actually states that India fears a negative US reaction.

The statement of a government official, whose name the Indian media does not name, is given:
There are ways to circumvent the new financial sanctions arising from CAATSA (countering America’s opponents through the sanctions law), adopted by the US Congress. We are in contact with the Russian government at several levels in order to develop a roadmap for the continuation of cooperation.


Another high-ranking source is cited:
On the one hand, the US wants India to be their closest strategic partner in the Asia-Pacific region as an influence against China. On the other hand, it threatens our proposed acquisition of C-400 missile defense systems from Russia, as well as frigates, submarines and helicopters.


At the same time, the publication notes that India had to begin military-technical cooperation with the United States, since Russia recently showed a tendency to revise schedules of arms supplies, to increase costs already in the process of contract execution, as well as intractability in terms of technology transfer.

From the material:
But it is equally true that India needs to maintain its huge stock of weapons systems of Russian origin, which could be adversely affected by US sanctions. The government also recognizes that only Russia will help India with modern strategic projects, such as nuclear submarine projects.

      ".... the acquisition of S-400 air defense missile systems from Russia, ..."


      Looking at the line for the S-400, it would be as if our manufacturers did not have to work in 5 shifts and without days off. bully

        What’s interesting to me is that, and our military are standing in this line (I hope that ours is a priority) or are standing aside and smoking, swearing?

    and intractability in terms of technology transfer.

    Ku-ku. Russia is not accommodating, and Americans are bombarded with technology from Boeing.
    They think interestingly. They also want to get into the Silk Road and fight with China. Adequate turkeys.

    Yes, they need to be immersed in reality, otherwise the lips are rolled out from the 90s, they all want a lot and almost for nothing. Let them try to bargain with the Americans.

    also intractability in terms of technology transfer.

    Is the United States the most accommodating in terms of technology transfer? It’s just that the American kickbacks for Hindu officials are somehow closer to the body than the benefits for India from cooperation with the Russian military-industrial complex. Well, well, American friendship often ends with color revolutions and the actual status of the colony.

    I also adhere to this opinion. They will dance, sing, admit that relatives will continue to buy, but at the same time act up as usual.

    Yes, let them buy from anyone they want, or from all together. One vegetable - they don’t know how to shoot. Great wars have been found! Give them at least a rocket, at least a slingshot, at least give two steel balls - one will be broken, the other will be lost.
