In India: Defense Cooperation “Angers” China with Russia

38

Against the backdrop of the COVID-19 pandemic and the worsening relationship between China and India, New Delhi is strengthening strategic relations with Russia. At the same time, considerable attention is paid to cooperation between the two countries in the defense sphere.


The Indian educational portal JagranJosh.com lists the latest Russian-Indian deals related to weapons and military equipment.

Back in 2018, India signed with Russia on the purchase of S-400 anti-aircraft missile systems in the amount of 5,2 billion dollars. They were planning to deliver the first batch before the end of 2021, but most likely due to a pandemic this will happen in 2025. New Delhi has already paid the first tranche of $ 800 million.

At the end of last year, three repaired Kilo-class submarines were sent to India. In addition, Russia proposed the modernization of three existing Indian Navy submarines of the same class to extend their service life by 10 years.

Moscow also extended until 2028 a license for manufacturing in India tanks T-90S. Now the Indian side has begun the production of 400 such combat vehicles.

The Indian government also signed an agreement with Moscow on the purchase of R-27 air-to-air missiles to equip them with Su-30MKI combat aircraft.

The Russian Federation has become the most active participant in the defense exhibition DefExpo India. During its conduct, Moscow and New Delhi concluded many transactions and signed a number of memoranda of understanding, many of which will subsequently become the basis for concluding agreements on the supply of weapons and military equipment.

Indian experts say that defense cooperation with Russia "angers China." Moreover, it is added that the three countries are members of the BRICS group, which is increasingly being talked about less actively on the world stage. New Delhi believes that China is trying to take on the leadership role in this organization.

    Defense cooperation with Russia makes China angry

    - Do you think the Chinese are a peace-loving nation?
    - What are you talking about! You just give them a rifle - the eye is already narrowed!

      And why get angry? Everything is easier to solve. Just outbid weapons for India. wink
      In general, China without border conflicts, not China. Recall Damansky. Something the Chinese do not like diplomacy, expect that the crowd is easier to prove the truth. winked Japan, on the contrary, like asses, do not stop mumbling about the islands and get on their nerves. As in the movie "Give a million, give a million." smile

        Does someone know what we don’t know?
        A pandemic lasts a third month, and a shift of four years.
        A curtsy of China, or what?

          Here the second "wave" of coronavirus is on its way, then, you see, the third ... And after this "pandemic" the economy will go down in the Stone Age, so the shift may be not four years, but forty.

      Wolf Messing: "Prophecies for 2020
      Telepathic predictions reached literally 2020. His quotes are written in books and delivered in speeches. Many believe and await the fulfillment of prophecies. Wolf G. talked about the fact that Russia will have 2 enemies - the United States and China. The Americans will fight openly, and the Chinese will hide behind a mask of friendship. A country in East Asia will grow into a superpower and pursue an aggressive policy. And the United States will never fade away hatred of the Russian people. Over the years, this country will lose ground, become weak and vulnerable.
      Prediction - to be wary of the United States and China - has become the mainstream in the XNUMXst century. Messing believed that this conflict could even become the cause of the Third World War. ""

        Any predictions are a set of POSSIBLE options.
        The option that an individual or country chooses is one of many.
        There is no definite planned option for many millions of years to come and there is no need for it.
        There is a global, unknown game to us.
        We are not even pawns, but molecules of the material from which the pawns are made.

            Oddly enough, but you're right.
            Only one nuance slipped away from you.
            The definition of POSSIBLE options depends, first of all, on the abilities of a person.
            From his ability to "look around the corner". From outlook and intellect.
            And from a couple of hundred factors.
            There is such a thing as a futur forecast.
            Not just blurt out the nonsense and enjoy what was said, but clearly explain the possibility (even minimal) of such a development of the situation.
            The closest to understanding this is chess.
            Not just a rearrangement of figures.
            And the foresight of all the options that arise after each change in the position of the pieces on the board.
            In life, everything is much more complicated.
            The figures are many times more than 32.

          The struggle for the market is one thing, and military assistance to the enemy of an ally during the conduct of hostilities is another.
          Let me give you a second conditional example - China during the Chechen war began selling MANPADS to Basayev.

            Alas, in modern conditions, one can put an equal sign between this.
            Somehow, until the "roast cock", in the person of Trump, "did not peck" China very painfully, from them, like the same, there was no special help and cooperation in practice, only in words ...
