In the American press: India makes it clear with its friendliness to Putin that it is not afraid of US sanctions for the purchase of weapons from Russia

The West is commenting on Vladimir Putin's visit to India, where he met with Prime Minister Narendra Modi. In particular, the following fact is pointed out: new agreements have been reached between Moscow and New Delhi on the purchase of Russian weapons by India, on the operation of factories for the production of such weapons on Indian territory.


As they write in the American press, this indicates that India actually ignores the US warnings about the possible inclusion of the country in the CAATSA sanctions list. This is a package of restrictive measures that the United States threatens almost all countries that cooperate with Moscow in military-technical terms. India has long been threatened with a sanctions package over the purchase of S-400 anti-aircraft missile systems from Russia. Earlier, India called on the United States to abandon such measures.

Now, according to the American edition of The New Yorker, India's friendliness to Putin makes it clear that it is not afraid of US sanctions for buying weapons from Russia. In particular, it is said that the strengthening of China at the Indian borders dictates to New Delhi the need to choose specific weapons that it "could use to defend against China," regardless of the opinion of the United States. Such weapons, as the authors write in the American magazine, include the Russian air defense systems S-400 "Triumph".

American authors of Indian origin Karan Singh and Mujib Mashal note that in itself a warm meeting of Vladimir Putin with the highest authorities of India can be an unambiguous signal for Washington. A signal that US pressure is unacceptable and that India has the right to choose options for its own defense.

The article cites a statement by Nandan Unnikrishnan, an analyst at OSR in New Delhi. According to him, India understands that it is taking certain risks in relations with the United States, demonstrating a constructive partnership with Russia, but the United States is also at risk if it does strike a sanctions strike against India. They may simply lose one of their main allies against China in such a macro-region as South Asia.

    A terrible dream for the United States, if India finds a common language with China, it has already found it with Russia.

      India will find a common language with China
      I am tormented by vague doubts about this.

        In 2020, the main trading partner of the table is China with a turnover of $ 75,5 billion, which does not prevent them from engaging in massacre at the border.

    It's good to be big and strong. You can send any hegemon to hell.

      Even Cuba and other small countries send them to hell. This is our mattress bedding in the media and the authorities, trying to create the image of a powerful United States. Their illusory power ended with their flight from Afghanistan. hi

    India virtually ignores US warnings about the country's possible inclusion in the sanctions list
    And thereby confirms its legitimate sovereignty. It is clear that such behavior is very infuriating for Americans who count on unquestioning obedience to their demands and at the same time using outright blackmail.

    These are the concepts of gopots from America. Those who disagree with their rules of doing business, who allow themselves to buy goods not from the Americans, are punished. India, despite the attempts of the Naglo-Saxons, put a multi-headed one according to all the rules of the Kama Sutra ... on America. Apparently, not all in this world they listen to Americans who are crazy about their importance. hi

    So, the S-400 began to fulfill not only its military functional duties, but also foreign policy ones.
    The strongest "diplomat" who leads to interstate sanctions. This has never happened in world practice.
    And where are these - "patriots", "iron kumpola", .... Hey! ... stop
    And around ..... silence. Something Israeli guys have not been seen for a long time.
    Probably at the training camp of reservists, without access to the Internet. crying

    Can the USA cooperate with someone not against someone else?

    India must understand that right now (during these years) it is at a crossroads. She will have to choose with whom and against whom she will become friends. Sitting behind the curtain of neutrality will not work. I hope, despite all the disagreements with the PRC, it will nevertheless make a choice in our favor. And then the striped fish will have absolutely nothing to catch in the Asian region.

    The USA has been saddening me for some time.
    Russia has been sending them everywhere for 15 years already.
    China also started.
    Now also India.
    But what can I say - even Turkey will get ridiculous.
    I'm not talking about North Korea, Iraq and other Syria ...
    Oh, the wrong hegemon went ...

    In the American press: India makes it clear with its friendliness to Putin that it is not afraid of US sanctions for the purchase of weapons from Russia

    So India understands very well that it is not in the interests of the United States to quarrel with it now. And with Russia it has a long-standing partnership. In addition, seeing how the friendship between Russia and China is strengthening, he is trying to keep Russia in his friends.
