Former adviser to the Indian Ministry of Defense: If the United States imposed sanctions over the S-400 against a NATO ally, they will also impose against us

39

The American sanctions imposed on Turkey are being actively discussed today not only in Turkey itself, but also, for example, in India. The reason is that India has contracted Russian S-400 anti-aircraft missile systems and is awaiting their delivery. Amit Koushish, former financial adviser to the Indian Defense Minister, spoke about this expectation.


According to the ex-official of the Indian defense department, one should not expect any concessions from the United States in terms of acquiring the S-400 air defense system. Amit Kaushish:

If the United States imposed sanctions over the S-400 against its NATO ally, then why do we believe that they will not be imposed against India? They will also be introduced against us. The Indian government today must be concerned about such a potential threat.

According to the ex-adviser, the US sanctions against Turkey are an indicator of the US resolve in the implementation of the CAATSA law. Let us recall that this law prohibits countries from interacting with Russia in military-technical terms. This law is actually one of the measures of unfair competition on the part of the United States on the world arms market. Washington is trying to gain competitive advantages not in fair trade, but in the form of counteraction at the level of bans for potential buyers of Russian weapons.

Former adviser to the Indian Ministry of Defense:

We can assume that if the S-400s are delivered to us, then the US sanctions against us will be introduced.

Against this background, the Indian press quotes Foreign Minister Subramanyam Jaishankar, who advised Washington "to learn how to work in a multipolar world, in which relations have long ceased to be exclusively bilateral." At the same time, the Indian Foreign Ministry transparently hinted to the United States that the loss of the Indian market for Washington would hardly be desirable. As you can see, India is determined to buy the S-400, despite the sanctions threats. The whole problem is that Washington is in no way ready to admit the obvious fact that the world has long become multipolar.

      Bullshit.
      Buy C-400 for rubles and you will be happy.
      Live your own brains.

      This also applies to Russia.

      If you want to live with the dollar, please follow the conditions of the owner of this currency.
      Perform CAATSA.

      The ruble is needed for the modern managers of Russia for the constant robbery of the population.
      The regular depreciation of the ruble is the basis of the economy.
      These leaders call the population of Russia rogue.

        It is unlikely that the US will impose sanctions against India for the purchase of the S-400. The US wants to pull India over to its side and push its heads against China.

        On the contrary. A very large part of the Indian highly skilled part of the population, today work remotely for the states. The states just have to threaten, "they say you work there and work for those who bought it." And that's all.

          Nonsense.
          I have already said sanctions with economic integration are a double-edged weapon.
          The US and India are very tightly connected economically and sanctions will hit both. What, for example, will those companies do where, according to you, those Indians are working remotely now? Will the Chinese be hired or the Ukrainians? By the way, this is not entirely true, about the most part and about the removal.

              So where do they get them then? Those Indians who work for American companies in one way or another close some portability of these companies and the global labor market. If it was possible to take their own people in their place, they would have done so a long time ago, especially when it comes to highly qualified personnel, who are also worth a lot in India. This is not done trivially because there are no people of our own in the required quantities. That's the whole conversation.

      Which countries?

      Brazil - Sold national and third-largest passenger aircraft maker + 50% of its medium transport aircraft program. But Boeing got sick, the deal was canceled. Brazilians are still running around asking to buy them in full + Bolsonaro constantly insists that the USA is Brazil's best and greatest friend.

      Russia - can impose sanctions, even a ban. But the US will not notice. How much turnover is there? 30-40 billion?

      India is multi-vector and would rather leave Brix than quarrel with the United States. Moreover, the United States is the guarantor of security and promises to come to the rescue if India starts a serious hack with China. Grandiose naval exercises are held annually. This year here.

      Here everything will end with politics, it will not come to economics. And there are their pitchforks.

      China - despite all the wars with Trump, the United States is China's # 1 trading partner. And the problem is extremely simple, no one in the world can replace the United States. There is simply not so much money and requests.

      South Africa - so they dropped everything and went to argue with the United States. wassat So they have miners sometimes run in for a salary and have to squander them. Otherwise, the whole economy will collapse.

        Which countries?

        Oh what countries are these !!!
        41,6% of the world's population and more than a third of the world's GDP!
        The United States is 4% of the population and just over 6% of GDP ...
        Now let's go over the countries:
        Brazil - in the export of the United States occupies an honorable 2nd place, but this is only 10, 7%.
        In imports, everything is much more serious, 16% and an honorable 1st place. However, 84% are NOT provided by Americans.
        South Africa - exports to the United States occupy an honorable 2nd place (7%), imports - 4th place (6,7%).
        Russia. Here the United States does not shine. It is not even included in the top 10 for exports (2,1%), for imports - 6th place and 4,5%.
        India - exports at 12,5% ​​and imports at 4%. Also far from the first roles.
        China - exports at 18% (1st place) and imports at 8% (3rd place). China is more dependent on the American market than others, but in absolute terms 82% of Chinese goods are bought NOT by Americans.
        And if we take into account the natural resources of this five and the potential intellectual potential ...
        But even judging by these figures, the United States does not provide even a fifth of the international trade of these countries. So what prevents BRICS from becoming a driving force in the world?
        Only the greed and venality of the local princelings.
        A multipolar world could already exist now ... And the United States could not oppose anything to this ...
        Leo is strong about dangerous, but against the background of the Elephant is almost invisible ...

      If the BRICS countries wanted

      The only problem is that there are no BRICS countries in nature .. there is no country, then by itself there is, there is no BRICS itself, there is absolutely nothing behind this abbreviation. And the sanctions .. here is such a thing, it is a double-edged weapon, and the one who wakes up and the one against whom suffers from them. They will not risk it. Europeans do not risk it either.

    The sanctions against Turkey are an indicative flogging of an alliance member who is too independent and unpredictable.
    The danger of acquiring With 400 Turkey in one - the theoretical possibility of identifying the "Achilles heel" of US stealth aircraft.
    The Turks are perceived by the United States as a "Trojan horse".
    So Indians don't need to be afraid.

    So the feeling, the statements that towards China, the look will be warmer ... only, the crisis is already there and will affect everything and everyone !!! and since the sanctions of minke whales are purely competitive cases, they need / will find any reason to crush competitors!
    That's the whole truth of the current situation.
