After the visit of the Indian Defense Minister to Moscow, the United States threatened New Delhi with sanctions

After the return of the delegation led by Indian Defense Minister Rajnat Singh from Moscow to New Delhi, they again began to exert pressure from the United States and threaten sanctions.


The American portal Janes reports that the US State Department reminded India that it could be subject to CAATSA sanctions in case of procurement weapons and military equipment in Russia. Recall that the specified package of sanctions in the United States was adopted as a threat to foreign countries that, in military-technical terms, cooperate with the Russian Federation.

Earlier, India from the USA was threatened with CAATSA sanctions in case of acquisition of S-400 air defense systems from Russia. India has been in lengthy negotiations with the United States. Ultimately, Washington, it seems, abandoned the sanction pressure on New Delhi, as Indian officials motivated the purchase of the S-400 from Russia by saying that "this is for protection from China."

But now, when Singh was in Moscow, where he called on Russia to expedite the supply of Triumph S-400 air defense systems, as well as supply Ka-226 helicopters, MiG-29 and Su-30MKI fighters, as well as other military equipment, the United States decided again remind Indian "partners" of sanctions. Apparently, the US decided that "against China" is too much ...

State Department official Janes refers to:

Without commenting on private diplomatic conversations, I can confirm that we urge all our allies and partners to abandon transactions with Russia that run the risk of imposing sanctions in accordance with the CAATSA law. Although we cannot prejudge whether a particular transaction will lead to sanctions, it is important to note that CAATSA does not have any general or country-specific denial clauses. There are strict criteria for considering a failure, and each transaction is evaluated on a case-by-case basis. The Secretary of State has not made any determination regarding the significance or exclusion of any transaction involving India.

Probably, now it will not come as a surprise if, after returning from Moscow, the Indian Minister of Defense will have to fly to Washington. There is another option for the United States (and the United States has already used it). This is the arrival of American representatives in New Delhi with the aim of "convincing" the Indian authorities regarding military-technical contracts with Russia.

    The threat of US sanctions is already looking ridiculous.

    Against the backdrop of riots in the states and Negro lawlessness.

      Rather, amid the unfolding confrontation between the United States and China

      Both Washington and New Delhi are well aware that the Americans cannot impose sanctions on India. This will be the failure of their long-term policy, and a huge section will disappear from the "Great Anti-Chinese Wall"

      Therefore, in India, to put it mildly, they do not care about such threats. Which really makes all of these statements at least ridiculous. And they are not at all conducive to maintaining the authority of the United States both in the country and in the world as a whole.

        Nothing threatens the section of the anti-Chinese wall; in the foreseeable future, the Indians are unlikely to make peace with the Chinese. The sale of American weapons is truly threatening. But here they are their own Pinocchio with their equestrian arms prices. They simply have nothing to compete with with our MIGs, SU and spacecraft.

        I don’t even know, in the wake of the latest publication - maybe they should have put an air defense system in an accelerated manner? The only drawback is that China might not like it. But China does not pursue an allied policy towards Russia.

                In difficult.
                Economic regression, the loss of industries with a high degree of conversion and an economy oriented towards the export of raw materials, a decrease in the population, the loss of satellite and allied countries, technical and scientific backlogs, smoldering conflicts along the entire perimeter of borders, and enemy armies working off the logistics of offensive operations. The future is vague and uncertain. And at the same time, a confrontation with a knowingly stronger opponent.
                As for me, she is in the position in which she is positioning herself in the international arena

                Russia is positioning itself quite effectively. But how do not position yourself, there will be no sense in this if there is nothing behind this position .. Behind the Russian position is not that there is nothing at all, Russia still has some kind of power, but it is barely enough only for in order to maintain the current "positioning".

                  The Russian Armed Forces and its nuclear triad completely allow us not to bother about what our western "partners" will think of you, but everything that you have listed is due to the fact that the people who run our country and own 90% of its resources and assets hold everything. what is acquired by back-breaking labor in the very West, which today gives us so many of the problems you have listed. This is where the spinelessness, toothlessness and "concern" of our foreign policy come from! Enemy armies will never dare to attack Russia as long as it has such an Armed Forces as it is today. To change all this, it is enough to destroy the oligarchs and other compradors, and start restoring the industry that they destroyed, about which you have written mildly, describing this dastardly action as "loss of production", and of course the economy! hi

                    keep everything that is acquired by overwork in the very west

                    Can this be kept somewhere else? I think this is still one of the consequences and not the root of the problem.

                        So I ask. Let's say a man stole a billion in the "holy nineties", does he have anything to do with it in Russia or not? Need to create conditions for something? Or is there already a tool that will allow you to invest this money and, if necessary, it is easy to take it out again into a "liquid" state? And in the west there are such instruments. So put yourself in the shoes of a typical oligarch. Can he, in principle, leave his money in Russia and in the Russian economy?

    Here they are the fruits of "introduction into the world economic system"!
    It turns out that the United States is the main beneficiary of this system, and the rest of its participants are sitting on side chairs.
    Now that we and other countries have deeply integrated, it’s possible to cause considerable damage to our opponents without having to arrange large bloody wars, sitting in a cozy office for a thousand kilometers. Now sometimes it’s enough just to threaten, so that not only companies, but sometimes entire countries scatter through the bushes.

    All signs of the usual unfair competition in the market. "Don't wake up to our (American) - we will impose sanctions."
    It is interesting whether the Indians will send them this time or again to bend?

      Turkey was imposed sanctions, although she really wanted to take the American. She was just forbidden to take it under the sanctions of the American (F35, Patriot).

    India is again interested in acquiring the Pantsir anti-aircraft missile and gun systems of modern modifications.

    Prospects for the acquisition of air defense systems, according to Indian media, were discussed during a visit to Moscow by a delegation led by Secretary of Defense Rajnat Singh.

    According to the Indian observer Huma Siddiqui, the purchase of this type of equipment is necessary for India because of the difficulties on the Indian-Chinese border - in the Ladakh region, whose territorial affiliation is contested. - “Armor” can be easily integrated into a wider air defense network and act in conjunction with S-400, which India asked to be delivered ahead of schedule, the Indian media quoted a representative of the Indian military department.

    After the visit of the Indian Defense Minister to Moscow, the United States threatened New Delhi with sanctions

    The United States wants to overpower with its attempts, already overwhelming. For the whole world there is not enough strength. Hindus know where real weapons are sold at affordable prices. This squabble between the USA and India is only to China's advantage. And Russia, and without Russia, whatever one may say, again nowhere ...

    The States have built a good "market". Just like in the Russian Federation - there are only dealers in the markets.

    In the 21st century, the United States of America gradually turned into the Sanction States of America.
    In addition to imposing sanctions, they are no longer capable of anything.

    .... we urge all our allies and partners to abandon transactions with Russia ...
    The United States has long forgotten what diplomacy in the classical form is. Blackmail, threats, provocations, etc. and so on - this is the classic style of American diplomacy. A little that is not in their language - get sanctions, or even a color revolution. At the American and then British embassies in Moscow, "rainbow flags" are being hoisted, what if not a provocation? These are not diplomats, but a bunch of poor provocateurs hiding behind diplomatic immunity.

    So you can only order a vassal, is India really down so? Where is the response note from India? Or were we too keen on the sovereignty of India?
