India is trying to explain why the United States should not impose sanctions against their country for the purchase of the S-400 air defense system

37

In India, they write that with the receipt of the S-400 anti-aircraft missile systems from Russia, the country's air defense system will reach a completely new level. The placement of the first complexes, which will arrive in India under the signed contract, will take place near the borders with China and Pakistan, which in New Delhi are considered the most dangerous directions.


Indian press:

The first deliveries under a contract worth more than $ 5 billion from Russia will begin in the fall of 2021. For additional agreements on supplies, a large delegation of the country's Air Force will leave for Russia at the end of the month.

At the same time, one of the issues that, in connection with the future delivery of the S-400 Triumph air defense system from the Russian Federation, is relevant for India itself, is the issue of US threats in the form of sanctions. These sanctions are provided for by the American law CAATSA - "for military-technical cooperation with Russia."

Indian observer Rajat Pandit writes that the Indian authorities are counting on "understanding from the new American administration regarding the purchase of the S-400."

The United States imposed sanctions against Turkey due to concerns about the integration of the S-400 into the NATO air defense system. India is trying to explain why the US should not impose sanctions.

Indian columnist:

But the Indian air defense system has nothing to do with NATO air defense, it is independent, and therefore does not pose any threats to the United States. That is why the government of Narendra Modi is counting on understanding from the future administration of Joe Biden in ensuring the protection of Indian air borders.

The Indian press also writes that India is not a member of the F-35 program, because the American CAATSA law "should not be applied in Indian relations."

Earlier, an expert's material was published in the Indian media, which literally said the following:

If the United States imposes sanctions even against its NATO allies (Turkey), then why do we think that for the purchase of the S-400 they will not impose sanctions against us.

But Turkey was part of the F-35 fifth generation fighter program.

In India today:

India has assured Washington that it will never violate the operational secrecy of weapons systems it has bought or will buy from the United States, while pointing out its impeccable reputation for maintaining confidential military information.

    Crushed, however. Under Gandhi, they did not bow so low, low.

    And this is generally a masterpiece !!! Once again he convinces you that you need to do it yourself, at home, and first of all for yourself. And I have not heard that the Indians were so convinced of the non-violation of operational secrecy.

      (...)
      The Indian press also writes that India is not a member of the F-35 program, because the American CAATSA law "should not be applied in Indian relations."

      This is a law about military-technical cooperation with Russia, and not about participation in the F-35 program. Sometimes it seems that people have serious problems understanding the meaning of what they read. The fact that India does not participate in the F-35 only means that in the case of the purchase of the S-400, sanctions will be introduced not through an exclusion from the F-35 program, but in some other way.

      Equally bizarre, they believe that the Democrats who have come to power will soften CAATSA, when even Trump, who is much more loyal to Russia, did not.

    There will be no understanding .... or there are political Faberge, like the same Erdogan, or not. And begging permission from the United States is already a sign of complete political impotence.

    But the Indian air defense system has nothing to do with NATO air defense, it is independent, and therefore does not pose any threats to the United States.

    threats to NATO itself have nothing to do with it. The United States is imposing sanctions for two reasons: to limit the presence of Russian weapons on the international market (which the American administration has stated more than once). And to rid ourselves of Turkish precedents in the future. NATO members should eat from only one feeding trough - the American one.
    looks forward to understanding from the future Joe Biden administration in ensuring the protection of Indian air borders.

    what a naive belief in American adequacy in general and the old senile Biden in particular

    But the military and the government of India do not need to take handouts from the West when concluding agreements on the supply of weapons for the country, then you will not be on the hook with your Western friends at the risk of being kicked out of the trough. That's why they buy you, so that they don't even dare to have their own opinion. The USSR / RF never put India in such a humiliating position. Now they will have to work off the bribes received by the loss of the security of their air borders from the Chinese and Pakistani air forces. Yes, and an SGA-shny friend can always break into their house and indicate how they should live. wassat

    These are sanctions against the fact that the Russian Federation would receive income from the export of weapons ... and in some segments, such as the S400, there is only a Patriot ...

      It's not even about income. Just unfair competition in the arms market.

    Above everything, there will be no councils for everyone, they will tear the pants, send striped ones with three well-known letters, they have become very insolent. Or finance internal instability, maybe then they will calm down.

    ..near the borders with China and Pakistan, which are considered the most dangerous destinations in New Delhi.

    They will "surprise" China, which has been armed with these air defense systems for several years.
    ... that the Indian authorities are counting on “understanding from the new American administration ...

    Hope for "understanding" laughing
    ..India is not a member of the F-35 program, therefore the American CAATSA law "should not be applied in Indian relations."

    The main thing is to calm yourself down ...

    The situation - and I want to and inject ...
    I would like to receive Russian complexes, but I am afraid to receive American sanctions for this.
    Hence this timid Hindu attempt to "spread straws."
    With such throwing, the sale of our S-400 complex to the Indians should be only after 100% prepayment of the entire contract. So that later there was no situation, as with the SP-2.

    Now the minus players will begin to minus my words, but still I have my opinion.
    Turkey turned out to be a head stronger and more independent than its European partners - it wanted to build a gas pipeline from Russia, it did it. Europe is still afraid of sanctions and wags its tail in front of the states.
    Turkey wanted to buy the S-400, it bought them in spite of the consequences. Damn India with 1 billion people sitting and persuading that - oh my lord, let me buy, I'll do whatever you want.
    Conclusion, before buying weapons or gas, Europe and India need to buy independence.
    Let them take the example of political independence and national pride from countries such as Russia, Turkey, China, Iran, North Korea and Venezuela.

      It is beneficial for the Russian Federation to have an Independent neighbor (albeit bad and bad), but who decides for himself what is profitable ... and what is not. An example is Bulgaria. They gave me a business with gas. (take and earn). But bros don't need ...- get a dead-end branch.
