In the Indian press: Sergei Lavrov said during his visit to India that the deal on the S-400 air defense system "will go smoothly"

The Indian press is discussing the visit of the Russian Foreign Minister to New Delhi. And the largest number of publications on this topic is associated with Russian-Indian contracts in the military sphere.


Indian columnist Nayyanima Basu notes that Sergey Lavrov's visit to New Delhi took place after an American delegation, which included the head of the Pentagon, Lloyd Austin, visited the Indian capital. Then Austin, during a press conference, said that "he did not discuss with his Indian counterpart the issue of sanctions for the purchase of the S-400 air defense system from Russia, since the complexes have not been delivered."

In the Indian press:

Russian Minister Sergei Lavrov, in turn, noted that he did not discuss with his colleague Jaishankar the execution of the S-400 contract. At the same time, the Russian Foreign Minister noted that the two countries are going to deepen military-technical cooperation, including within the framework of the existing Do in India program.

Nayyanima Basu:

Lavrov said he did not feel any change in New Delhi's position on the S-400 deal. He said the SAM deal would go smoothly.

Meanwhile, in India, some experts, commenting on Sergey Lavrov's visit and his statements, noted that if we are talking about expanding military-technical cooperation within the framework of the Do in India program, then it is quite possible that in the future, American sanctions will do with with the help of setting up the production of "Indian air defense systems on Indian territory." These statements at least indicate that India is already considering options for overcoming potential US sanctions for cooperation with the Russian Federation.

It is worth recalling that after his visit to New Delhi, Lavrov went to Pakistan, where he offered Islamabad the supply of Russian LNG and assistance in building a gas pipeline capable of connecting the country's largest LNG terminals.

    For whom? For India, it is doubtful that the sanctions will be ramped up. But we hope to understand this and are ready for them. request

      Far from being a fact. Losing India as an arms market, as an ally in the region of China's dominance, would be a huge mistake for the United States.
      Such sanctions will instantly throw India in the direction of arms supplies, and therefore politically, in the direction of a turn towards Russia.
      And after Turkey, the United States is unlikely to be ready to lose an ally in countering China's influence in the region.
      But most likely, India simply considers this deal as a lever of pressure in relations with the United States on some other issues, not intending to actually buy our complexes, or everything will come down to the issue of transferring production technologies of the complex to India itself.

            hi
            And where does the "bomb". Russia has the technologies that each of the "triangle" needs and trades profitably.
            The West also has technologies, but it is unprofitable (expensive) and very selective to sell them.

        Enemies are enemies, but this does not prevent India or Pakistan (or, by the way, China) from being a member and working in the SCO.

        The fact is that if India and Pakistan have fundamental problems, then Russia does not have them with both India and Pakistan, which makes it a valuable "asset" for both sides, since it can be an intermediary in resolving mutual claims. The same position of Russia is observed in relations between the PRC and India. The United States in this triangle is an annoying factor and plays a destructive role, and therefore Russia enjoys greater trust, which should be used in promoting its interests. The United States has already managed to spoil relations with Beijing and Islamabad, now, in the event that the Indians acquire the S-400 and the introduction of the sanctions mechanism against Delhi, the mattresses risk falling out with the Indians and thereby further increase the role of Russia in the region.

        But this is what it consists of the art of diplomacy: maneuvering between two implacable enemies, you can get much morethan from one of them and on more favorable terms!

    "Make in India"
    I doubt very much that for the sake of this deal, Russia will transfer technology to India. Once you make concessions to one country, others will immediately begin to demand the transfer of technology. Do we need this?

    The name of the С400 complex should be changed in India, upon receipt from Russia to "Krishna" 400, and let the Yankees impose sanctions against the Indian deity fool fool The Indians have no other way out.

    Are there any other tasks left for the Foreign Ministry, except for the sale of gas and scarce weapons ??
    Hindus have become loyal satraps of the United States in the region: they have fully entered the technological, military-technical alliances of America. Is it worth annoying China for such dubious prospects?

    Is Lavrov so sure or is this just a usual diplomatic step? Surely, the Indians will arrange their serial dances on the stage on the edges of which the Russian Federation and the United States will stand on the occasion of the contract. He is a gypsy and a gypsy in India. Anyone will try to vytsygat additional nishtyaki. winked

    We must act like the Americans. The S-400s arrived from Russia to India on a rotational basis. They take part in exercises, build a training center, and this is a scientific equipment. There is such good, the Americans themselves suggest
