Military Review

The Indian press recalled that the CAATSA laws on sanctions for military-technical cooperation with Russia are not approved by the UN

26

The Indian press is actively discussing the first visit of the new US Secretary of Defense Lloyd Austin with a delegation to the country. Two issues seem to be the most sensitive for India: the downgrade of human rights and freedoms carried out by the US-based Freedom House, as well as the American sanctions pressure on trade and economic ties with Russia on the issue of Russian arms supplies to India.


India noted that the American human rights organization, having downgraded the Indian rating of human rights and freedoms and transferred India to "partially free" countries, thus deliberately exerts pressure on New Delhi. Indian authorities said the Freedom House decision was "strongly rejected".

It is really strange that Freedom House drew attention to the existence of the caste system in India just now - and it so happened that before the visit of the American Secretary of Defense, who said that “while the imposition of sanctions against India has not been discussed, since there have been no -400 from Russia ". In other words, the head of the Pentagon made it clear that as soon as such deliveries take place, then sanctions will still be imposed.



The Indian press points out that the United States openly makes it clear that "only the American administration decides in what way India should cooperate with Russia." The Financial Express says that "the American administration is pointing out to India the need to refuse to participate in military deals and platforms with Russia."

This approach of the American side causes considerable irritation in India. In particular, in the aforementioned Indian edition, they recalled the words expressed by Nirmala Sitharaman (at that time the Minister of Defense of India). According to a senior official, the CAATSA package of sanctions laws are not laws that are approved by the UN, which means they are American laws that cannot be used extraterritorially. This statement has now become topical again in the Indian press.

In fact, India is making it clear that the United States, introducing or intending to impose sanctions from this package, is violating international law and the UN charter. But when the US stopped it ...

During a visit to India by US Secretary of Defense Lloyd Austin, he once again made it clear that the supply weapons India "shouldn't" from Russia. To this, Mr. Austin was told that India has been purchasing weapons from Russia (previously in the USSR) for about 7 decades, considering the Russian Federation to be a reliable partner. But the US administration was again not convinced by these arguments to abandon the sanctions threats.

      US puppet.
      The United States uses India as a counterweight to China, surrounding it, like Russia, with the "ring of Anaconda." But wise China will find a common language with its neighbor, a Buddhist country like it.
      Union with Russia, India, China able to save the world from the third world ...

        States use India as a counterweight to China

        In this case, the US is holding back India's ability to counterbalance China and Pakistan. India's refusal to purchase weapons due to the threat of foreign sanctions in Russia will be its demonstration of hostility to Russia and will push the latter to closer cooperation with China and Pakistan. It should not be forgotten that in the 1970s, the United States actively supported Pakistan, India's enemy. And it was precisely the threat of an American invasion of India that prevented India from completely crushing Pakistan in the last war and separating Sindh, Baluchustan and Pashtunistan from it. The threat of US sanctions fades against the backdrop of the threat of losing a reliable ally who helped create India's tank industry and the beginnings of an aviation industry by cooperating with it in the joint design of aircraft. No other country in India has offered such close military-technical cooperation.

            Not certainly in that way. Before the arrival of the British in India, there were many different states. Sikhs, Hindus and Muslims then fought with each other for life and death, and in the British they saw less evil than in their neighbors. When India gained independence, the British even hatched plans to transfer Muslim lands under the control of the Afghan king. During the division of the Indian colony, a massacre took place with millions of victims. In Ukraine, Russophobia, murder and beating of Russians was generously paid for by Kolomoisky, who can hardly be attributed to the representatives of the Ukrainian people. He simply thus sought to destroy, expel or intimidate the intelligentsia that was not subordinate to him, which could limit the influence of his clan by organizing ordinary Ukrainians to defend their rights.

        Approval is possible only if instead of a politician like Yeltsin and Gorbachev coming to power in Russia instead of Putin, and in the PRC instead of Li Jingping a character like Wu Sangui or Wang Jing-wei.

      Some colonialists, represented by the British Empire, have already been to India ... They remember this story well!

      And now the Americans want to play the same role. And they are also a former colony of the same British Empire. At the same time, they sent there a handsome, sorry, "the highest Negroid race" (I hope I am quite tolerant and politically correct). And he must break the sovereignty of India and its decades-old ties to one knee. Plus, do not forget that for India, Russia is also a balancer in relations with China (BRICS and not only) ...

      In general, for Indians it is simply offensive. All of the above.

      They have a truly caste society, they think by origin! With such a mission, a respectable gentleman of the bluest bloods and indisputable pedigree should have been sent! They would smile at him, bow to him ... And this will simply be trampled into the dirt on the Internet and the media (unofficially, of course), we don't read them newspapers and don't watch TV, so we won't recognize ...

    the American leadership has only pressure and threats ... to use the methods of diplomacy, they have forgotten how to use the word completely ... education that allows us to understand the national characteristics of countries in the World (for example, the caste nature of India, the presence of Sikh culture, the Muslim part and other topics) is absent from US politicians .. .BUT everywhere they climb with their own standards and concepts ...

    Well, where to go, or be patient and obey, or disobey and be patient.
    When the forces are too unequal, it remains only to choose a pose, either to put a blow on the cheek, or under a kick on the ass.

    The main thing is that these golden glories become official position, and not just words ...

    In this tone, Americans can only talk with their slaves, Poland, Ukraine, and Moldova. India is not Ukraine and there is no Maidan.

    American human rights organization ...
    It is high time for the world (and Russia in the first place) to understand that American, and moreover, human rights organizations make ratings exclusively in the interests of the United States and depending on what the Americans need at the time of compiling the rating. Therefore, it is time for the whole world to put on these ratings and make their own, in which the United States will clearly not be in the first place.
    the CAATSA sanctions package are not laws that are approved by the UN, which means they are American laws that cannot be used extraterritorially
    In this case, the United States has beaten the whole world and is trying to spread its laws where they need it. In the photo "this guy who is a general from this department" I wonder what he presented to the Indian minister? Not a platinum bank card by accident?

      I dare to assume that there are beads and scissors. Mattresses are traditionally given this set to those who want to take away land, gold and all vital resources. The Indians remember this "scam" well. winked

    You have to remember that Americans will sell their souls for a dollar. All India has to do is buy an insignificant weapon system from the US and everything will then be ok. No one really expects India to stop buying from Russia, for one thing the US weapon systems are far too expensive and Russian systems are half the price. Russia makes a lot of very good weapons. China is moving in on Russia's military sales by offering even lower pricing if you buy from China. The world is changing.

    India is now in a convenient position when it can almost directly send the United States in three letters, and they will still call them partners, grinding their teeth, in the hope of setting them on China
