Indian press: India is already physically unable to refuse to purchase C-400 from Russia

33

The Indian press reports that, despite pressure from the United States, New Delhi is "physically unable to refuse to purchase C-400 anti-aircraft missile systems from Russia."


The Indian media named the reason why "failure is no longer possible." It is stated that this reason consists in partial payment of the contract signed with the Russian Federation for the supply of the latest air defense systems.

The Hindustan Times writes that at the moment, Indian authorities have transferred a million dollars to the Russian supplier 850. It is noted that this is about 15 percent of the value of the entire contract. The publication reports that this kind of partial prepayment guarantees India an "accelerated supply."

Deliveries of anti-aircraft missile systems for the needs of the Indian armed forces will begin in the 2020 year. Indian reporters claim that if an advance payment of $ 850 million had not been paid, then the implementation of the contract could be delayed until the year 2025.

Earlier it was reported that the total value of the contract is about 5,4 billion dollars.

In India, they note that in order to avoid the American “economic impact” (and we are talking about the CAATSA sanction package, which the US threatens to apply to any buyer of Russian military equipment and weapons), Moscow and New Delhi are conducting a dialogue on transferring transactions entirely to payment in national currencies.

Meanwhile, Washington continues to carry out attempts to "dissuade" India from the Russian acquisition. Thus, the White House said that the acquisition by the Indian side of C-400 from Russia “will limit US cooperation with India.”

    This is a guide to action wishing to complete cooperation with the United States.

      Deputy Assistant Secretary of State for South and Central Asia Alice Wells, speaking on the congressional committee on foreign affairs, said: "The United States, as the world's leading democracy, is simply obligated to help India" not buy the S-400. "

      How to help? Introduce “economic impact” sanctions against India. repeat Or it can reimburse the Indians for their prepayment for the contract belay

        I feel the mattress will burst soon, rushing about as if driven. They want to embrace the already immense. And they look like clowns wound up with their sanctions.

          Here another question arises: if
          the acquisition by the Indian side of the S-400 from the Russian Federation "will limit US cooperation with India."
          Turkey, India, Malaysia, Saudis, others are threatened - who will sell their own?

        The United States is doing awesome advertising for us, Erdogan was offered a deal for one hundred billion, they don’t offer such conditions for trash, it’s for the apologists that the S-400 wasn’t in battle, maybe it wasn’t

        "wanting"?

        It is the matter of time. As recently as a quarter of a century ago there was a country with a population of one and a half hundred million among the hard-working. Now, somehow even presidents are sitting in the White House instead of Americans.

        All for the fact that with the departure of the dollar from global trade, the world will fall apart into currency zones with its own currencies. One of these areas is Asian. And whose currency and economy will dominate in it? India claims leadership.

        The Americans need tension in any region of the globe in order to ensure the operation of their own defense industry, for which the quality principle "best weapon" has been replaced by "the best of the advertised weapon."

    in place of the Indians, I would hurry too winked and 850 million is ... a good contribution. even if they continue to make their “adjustments” in terms of delivery time ... and there you’ll still have to buy fighters. but this is probably later. all the same, 5.4 billion is not small money for India. and not only for India recourse

    At the same time, Russia, the selling S-400 does not threaten any punishment for the refusal, the transaction is commercial in nature. Of course, in our time there may always be someone who might not like it, but as they say, wolves are afraid not to go to the forest.
