Military Review

India's refusal to participate in the Caucasus-2020 exercise is being discussed in Russia

48

In Russia, the decision of the Indian military command related to the planned military exercises in the Russian Federation is being discussed. We are talking about the large-scale military maneuvers "Caucasus-2020", to which the military of a number of countries, including India, were previously invited to participate.


It became known that the Indian Ministry of Defense made a decision to refuse to participate in the Caucasus-2020 exercises.

The Indian Defense Ministry writes through its official pages on social networks that, while remaining a strategic partner of Russia, India will not participate in maneuvers on Russian territory due to the ongoing threat of the spread of coronavirus infection.

From a Twitter post from the Indian Ministry of Defense:

India has decided not to send its contingent to the Russian Federation this year.

Earlier it was reported that up to two companies of the Indian military could take part in the Caucasus-2020 exercises.

It is important to note that in addition to the Indian military, military personnel from 2020 more foreign countries, including Belarus and China, have been invited to the Caucasus-4 exercise. In total, more than 120 thousand soldiers and officers will take part in the maneuvers.

If we talk about sanitary statistics, then India is in the top five countries in the world in the spread of coronavirus infection.

Russian military experts, commenting on the decision of the Indian military department, note that during the Caucasus-2020 exercise, it would be worth organizing measures to localize a dangerous disease with the involvement of military doctors. Such activities would benefit the participants in the exercises and would allow developing a unified approach in the fight against the military against a new type of virus in a certain area. The Russian military has a similar experience, for example, on activities in Italy.

    Viral risks are the current reality. It just needs to be taken into account.

          Most likely, they do not want to lose again to Pakistan and China.
          The reason is not important. What is important is what to do.
          India, for all its fickleness, is a major market for Russian goods. This means that you can not give a reason for the deterioration of relations.
          So don't give a damn and forget about this refusal.

            in addition to the Indian military, servicemen from 2020 more foreign countries, including Belarus and China.


            Fortunately, there is a coronavirus, blame it on anything ...

            Yes - hitting the face in front of their rivals is a much more serious failure for them than getting infected or infecting someone, not to mention the sanctions - not Zimbabwe, even Turkey sent the Americans for a walk with their sanctions.

            I don’t understand why they were invited. No, the fact that the Hindus are rooted in the Caucasus, I certainly heard wassat wassat But I can’t understand why we are with them, in what kind of conflict in the Caucasus they will help us, it’s tense to trade with them, and waiting for help from them is beyond my understanding.

          The second important factor is the presence of the military from China at these exercises. Indians now do not want to intersect with the Chinese anywhere.

            Our business is to propose, and the Chinese will agree .. The fact that India is allergic to its neighbors can be explained by a "brain pandemic", it also explains the fact that they lost to the Chinese, abandoning the teachings. Which, by the way, would not hurt them. Moreover, army specialists are not brainwashed national battalions. And in general I have read to
            Russian military experts, commenting on the decision of the Indian military department, note

              They are "allergic" to each other, this is for internal use.
              For specialists, even a loss, in competitions, to "sworn friends", this is a reason to study, prepare better! But for politicians, it's like a sickle ...
              Everyone decides, politicians ... it's easier for them to find an excuse than to take care of the best training of their military. This is the case.

              It was broadcast on the radio that India became the record holder, right behind the minke whales, in the daily growth of those infected with the virus! Maybe they really have no time for games?
              As for the vaccine, if they cooperate with us, buy, this will be an indicator of their sanity !!! We'll see the rest later.

        Sanctions for participating in exercises with the Russians? There are most likely a number of factors and one of them is that they sent an invitation to China, coronavirus, of course, of course, the recommendations of the Americans are also possible.

      And we, like, no? Of course not.
      There are military doctors, orders and military discipline to resolve such issues. The issues of ensuring the safety of all participants fall on the receiving side, and our military doctors have already shown what they are capable of both in their own army and in Italy.

      If they do not have it, they do - we, with them and the Chinese, are members of the SCO and BRICS. And the invitation of India and Pakistan as observers to the SCO serves incl. and the goal of reconciling India with China and Pakistan. This would be beneficial to everyone, and primarily to us as trade, transit and strategic partners.
      A powerful RIC bloc, acting with one position on the basis of consensus on the geopolitical agenda, would become not only a counterbalance to the Western one, but also potentially stronger (more human resources and mineral reserves, more powerful aggregate agro-industrial complex, industry and scientific potential) and more attractive to other countries: without blackmail, bribery, slander, as well as other undercover games and coercion inherent in Western "diplomacy", his authority in the world would become indisputable.

        Theoretically beneficial. Exactly in the same way as the tension between them is theoretically beneficial to us. It is certainly easier for us to deal with China when the brain of the United States and India is hovering over it. Exactly the same as with India, it is easier for us to trade in arms when China and Pakistan are giving it headaches.

    Given the complexity of the situation on the Indo-Chinese border, the reason is probably China's participation in the exercises. Well, the coronavirus is an excellent excuse so as not to put Russia in an ambiguous position.

    India's refusal to participate in the Caucasus-2020 exercise is being discussed in Russia

    -It's strange that India refused such a gratuitous (and quite costly on the part of Russia) event ...
    -Most likely India is again trying to "extort" something from Russia ... -Some regular preferences for itself ... -And thus India is trying to use a form of blackmail ... in relation to Russia ...
    -But it looks ridiculously ridiculous (in spite of everyone ... - I will frostbite) ... -One recent purchase of expensive "Raphael"
    - By participating in the Caucasus-2020 exercises, India would have gained much more ...
