Visit of Indian Defense Minister to Moscow called "great Russian shopping"

43

Indian media are actively discussing the visit of the country's defense minister Rajnat Singh to Moscow. He is accompanied by the head of the secretariat of the Ministry of Defense, Ajay Kumar, and the chief of staff of the integrated defense, Hari Kumar.


The head of the Indian defense department is meeting with his Russian counterpart Sergei Shoigu, as well as with Deputy Prime Minister Yuri Borisov, Rostec CEO Sergei Chemezov, and Rosoboronexport head Alexander Mikheev. India Today called Singh's visit "the great Russian shopping" of the Indian Minister of Defense.

As Military Review has already reported, Rajnat Singh is trying to agree to expedite the supply of Triumph Russian S-400 air defense systems to the country, as well as the supply of components for assembly at the Indian plants of the MiG-29 and Su-30MKI fighters. Among other things, during a visit to Russia, we are talking about the supply of components for helicopters and submarines.

Visit of Indian Defense Minister to Moscow called "great Russian shopping"


For reference: cr (crore) - 10 million Indian rupees)

The Indian media mentioned that all the talk about the urgency of deliveries of arms and components from Russia is connected with the turbulent situation on the border with China - in the Ladakh region. Indian sources claim: they managed to find out that on the Chinese side during the skirmish that occurred a few days ago, the commander of one of the units was killed.

In connection with the events in Ladakh, the Indian army, navy and air force received permission from the government for additional purchases weapons and ammunition worth up to about $ 210 million in total. It is important to note that this is precisely an addition to the funds already allocated previously from the military budget. The bulk of these (additionally allocated) funds of the Indian Ministry of Defense is going to be spent on the purchase of weapons and components in Russia.

India Today:

Rajnat Singh's trip to Russia is very important. And the main thing in it is not so much a visit to the parade in honor of the 75th anniversary of the victory over Germany, but just the military-technical component of Indian-Russian relations. Up to half of all weapons in India today are of Russian origin. According to the representative of the Ministry of Defense, Russia for India today is actually the only country capable of delivering the necessary weapons and ammunition almost overnight.

    Although they honestly said that they now more importantly buy weapons and spare parts for our equipment, they did not bother ...

          I have one concern:

          - Now we will make deliveries to India ... But will we have enough components ourselves in the short term?

          Troubled times ...

        India, fighting with the British colonialists, practically supported the Japanese. The collaborator Subhas Chandra Bos led the so-called pro-Japanese Legion "Free India". He also actively collaborated with the Nazis.
        Today is a national hero, revered on a par with Jawaharlal Nehru and Mahatma Gandhi.

    overnight is how? to take this weapon out of the RF Armed Forces? Thank you, have already passed more than once. No one will make an airplane or an anti-aircraft system overnight. Overnight, you can only drop a couple of boxes of machine guns from the Tu-160 at supersonic))

      That Su30SM that Su35S are mass-produced at 15-17 pieces per year. The army can simply reassign the ordered cars (or car kits, so productivity will increase). Another thing is that the MKI is not SM, there are Jewish and French details there, and the Indians will also want to update them to the modern level. And this is exactly the brake in the order.

      India is not ruled by gypsies (even figuratively), but by Brahmin castes. And these people are distinguished by high intelligence, resourcefulness, intelligence. They believed that they had the opportunity to work out - worked out. Loaded a fried rooster aiming at their asses - changed their position to a petitioner.

    I'm worried about something else. I have not heard that at least one senior person from China came to the Victory Parade. A few years ago, Comrade Xi came in person and, with pleasure, listened to the concert on Red Square. What friendship is over again? Or just backstage maneuvers?

      Maybe this is due to a new wave of the virus? There, right now, in the part of Beijing, it is mowing. Maybe representatives arrived like a foreign delegation. Not everyone was called yet.

    Russia is not an outcast.
    We do not trade weapons with countries plunged into conflict unrelated to the defense of the fatherland.
    India is embarking on a gamble with China. In turn, China looks like a country that also does not mind playing muscle.
    Russia does not supply such conflicts with weapons. This is not negotiable.
