In New Delhi: There is no alternative to the Russian S-400 air defense system for India

16

Indian observer Rahul Bedi writes that once again warnings have come from the United States to India about "the inadmissibility of violating the law on military-technical cooperation with Russia." We are talking about the CAATSA law, with which the Americans are trying to threaten the whole world, believing that American legislation should become universal for the entire planet.


The Indian press notes that the United States has again warned India about sanctions in the event of the deployment of Russian S-400 anti-aircraft missile systems. The warning came through the American Embassy in Delhi.

Rahul Bedi, talking about the next American threats, uses the following phrase:

Washington shows India a fist in a soft glove.

It is pointed out that the American ambassador has already warned India several times about possible sanctions, while "offering to consider the option of acquiring American weapons." In New Delhi, meanwhile, made it clear that there is no alternative to the Russian S-400 air defense system for India. At the same time, it was noted that India already buys a considerable number of American weapons, but among this number there are no modern anti-aircraft missile systems for the reason that the United States does not sell them to India on the same terms as Moscow does.

Rahul Bedi notes that the United States "offers to suffer India because Washington is annoyed by Russia's policy." An Indian observer writes that India might have bought American air defense systems, but the United States "regulates the sale by a variety of protocols that cannot be called flexible."

The Indian press cites a statement from the marshal aviation retired V. Bhatia, who noted that in comparison with American air defense systems, the Russian S-400s are more versatile, versatile and easy to use. He also adds that the United States stubbornly refuses to understand India's desire to modernize its air defense system.

      Duc, and where to go then: Recall that the contract for the supply of S-400 air defense systems to India was signed in 2018. Its cost is about $ 5 billion, according to Indian media reports. [i] India has already made an advance payment of approximately $ 800 million [/ i]

      The advance payment is NOT refundable. winked

      And be guilty all the time
      Probably soon they will impose sanctions for just one trip to Russia to conclude a contract

    I think the Indians will buy it. They also need to fight, and not boast to their neighbors.

    India must be punished. For prevention .... that would be an example for others.

    As for me - so in response to all these innuendo mattress, we must immediately begin to supply shmalalovo to all enemies of America. They won't be able to pay - but to hell with it, we'll give it conditionally free. The kick to the States is worth it. Kim, Ayatollahs, Houthis, Venezuela, Taliban - everyone. Yes - we will lose the dough on this, but the striped lesson will be sickly. How to scatter all sorts of unlimited sanctions. For they need to be clearly hammered into stupid skulls - Russia is not Papuan, every hit will have its own price. By the way, the great Soviet Union - I clearly understood this topic ..

      And there is also the certainty that if some kind of mess happens with the neighbors, then no one will come to the rescue. Neither Russia nor the States. Nobody at all.
      So we need to arm ourselves and be ready ourselves.

    Weak excuse from an Indian comrade.
    It was necessary to say this: no one dares to tell us. Even if the Russian system were worse and more expensive, we could buy it without asking anyone. Whenever we need your opinion, we will ask it.

    Washington shows India a fist in a soft glove.
    Is it soft? This Indian side is just trying to smooth things over so as not to upset the Americans. But the attitude of the Americans to competition in the arms market and not only, the use of various means to eliminate a competitor deserves special attention and will become analogs of diplomatic and international activities. This alone is worth a lot
    the American ambassador has already warned India several times about probable sanctions, while "offering to consider the option of acquiring American weapons"

    Interestingly, who in the world does the United States understand, except for itself? smile
