India will thank the Russian Federation for support from the USSR

61
Indian politicians and experts said during a video link between Delhi and Moscow on the theme “Russian-Indian cooperation: interests and prospects”, timed to coincide with India’s Independence Day, that they would thank Russia for the support they received from the Soviet Union in due time, reports Utro.ru.

“The Soviet Union participated in the construction of our infrastructure, nuclear energy, the mining complex ...”, said the secretary of the Indian National Congress party Dalbir Singh, adding that India received help from the USSR during the “decades” when it was still a weak and backward country .

“Now we have 1,2 of a billion inhabitants, and we can do a lot for Russia,” he stressed.

According to him, the USSR helped India when against it, as now and against the Russian Federation, sanctions were imposed by Western countries.

“In the 80-s, only the USSR supported India in the field of nuclear energy, no one else in the world helped us with this, and when we ran out of uranium, we received it from Russia,” said Singh.

However, according to him, after the collapse of the USSR, relations between the countries began to fade.

“Why do we have trade with Russia for just 10 billion dollars?” With small countries, we trade 40 billion, ”noted Singh.

According to the politician, this figure may be increased to at least 80 billions in the near future. Moreover, India conducts more honest trade with Russia than Western countries.

“If the West buys from Russia almost exclusively raw materials, oil and gas, then Russia sells nuclear equipment to India, high-tech ... From 10 billions to 3,5 billion India exports to Russia, to 6,5 billions to Russia to India. India invests in Russia annually 6 billion, Russia in India - 4 billion, ”Singh said.

        US displaced Russia from India’s top arms supplier.
        According to data released by the Indian Ministry of Defense on Tuesday, August 12, over the past three years, India has spent $ 13,62 billion on weapons.

        The United States became the largest supplier of weapons to India (5,32 billion dollars), having displaced Russia from this position, previously traditionally leading in this market (4,14 billion dollars).

        The third supplier is France, which sold $ 1,97 billion worth of weapons to India. Israel ranks fourth ($ 550 million).

            I posted this for a different reason. In the East, they love to sing praises, but they have nothing to do with reality. Hindus talk about "friendship" with Russia, and they buy weapons from America.

              Firstly, the Indians do not put all their eggs in one basket, this is probably smart. Especially when you consider that in the Russia-India-China triangle there are many frictions, especially between China and India. Secondly, the Americans sell military products to India in which our particularly outstanding can offer nothing, for example, military transport or anti-submarine aircraft. For helicopters, this is more difficult to explain.

                Yes and no. There is no such triangle at all. China is a friend of Pakistan. That says it all.
                The Americans went around Russia not only in transporters and helicopters, but also in the barrel artillery and fighters. The vector is important here.

                  I do not mean the friendship of everyone with everyone, but just the relationship between Russia and China and between Russia and India. India sees the warm relations between Russia and China and is not sure with whom we will be friends more tomorrow. India has complicated (to say the least) relations not only with Pakistan, but also with China itself.

                  The relations between the USSR and India were quite sincere, and the assistance was quite voluminous, to say the least. So in this case the praises will at least have a serious foundation. Hindus people are of course extremely complex and ambiguous (I know firsthand the pharmacist's wife works in a company whose founders are Hindus, which in turn is a distributor of Shreya Life Science). I am personally acquainted with many leaders of the Indians (more than one corporate party held together wassat ) It is difficult to say something good about them, two-faced quirky people, but nevertheless, the Indian market and relations with it are extremely important for us, and not only in the military-technical cooperation, but also pharmaceuticals, nuclear energy and so on.

          After one in our Ministry of Defense (even under Serdyukov) announced that the T-90 was out of date, India canceled a new contract for the supply of tanks. And how we famously sold an aircraft carrier that turned out to be three times more expensive, and broke only when it went to sea. With such helpers and with such an approach, we miss the first places.

            The aircraft carrier crashed due to the breakdown of pipelines that could not withstand the load of the northern climate, and everything was fine, the Indians made changes for themselves, to sail in the southern latitudes. It’s not always possible to learn how to manage such a colossus, therefore our crews already teach them how to practice , while sailing to the shores of India and accompany their training to full automatism. Do not forget that caste remained in India.

          The Ministry of Defense of this country expressed concern about the weakening of the country's defense capability, turning to its government to seriously think about acquiring at least 2 submarines. And on the trail

"What's going on in Kudankulam? This nuclear energy program ran into difficulties because NGOs, mainly, I think, based in the United States, do not appreciate the needs of our country to increase electricity production," Singh said in an interview with Science magazine ...

    India is overpopulated much more than China. This time.
    Secondly, in the next 5-10 years, more Indians will become more Chinese.
    Thirdly, Indians are very cruel in terms of business. They absolutely spit on the population. And let them into your economy is not worth it. Ask the Karaganda people about the Indians.

    and finally. The world has changed. Every man for himself. And only occasionally is Kumu on the way.

    News for the professor.
    The Pentagon, despite the protests of the US Congress, stubbornly insists on the purchase of Russian helicopter equipment for the mission in Afghanistan, said Igor Sevastyanov, head of the Rosoboronexport delegation at an exhibition in Zhukovsky on Thursday.
    And add some good news:
    Representatives of the US presidential administration blocked the delivery to Israel of rockets for IDF combat helicopters, which were the most important attacking force of Israeli aviation during Operation Unbreakable Rock.
    This was reported by the Wall Street Journal, citing a source in the White House. A publication on this subject emphasizes that President Obama and the Department of State are extremely concerned about the fact that, more recently, Israel has agreed to obtain the weapons it needs directly from the US military, ignoring political institutions.

      As far as I remember, not a single villainy from India was
      It is a pity that some states have very short memories - above all, the countries of eastern Europe.
      Well, many "fraternal" states - the republics of the former USSR also distinguished themselves in terms of "gratitude"

      And here are some more "sworn enemies" running into partners. Russia has previously signed three contracts with the Pentagon for the supply of more than 70 Mi-17V5 helicopters for the Afghan army.
      “Despite the congressmen’s protests, various replacement options, the switch to American production, the US military at the Pentagon level stubbornly insists on the purchase of Russian helicopters,” said Sevastyanov.
      He also said that some senior US military officials in negotiations with representatives of the Russian Federation have repeatedly stated that they would gladly equip the American army with Russian weapons, such as helicopters, if there was political will. hi

    In addition to armament, it is necessary to move the item.

    India was afraid of cooperation between Russia and Pakistan and China. And if we have been cooperating with China for a long time, then with Pakistan, exactly as India has risen in a pose against Russia. Sometimes you need to give partners a light so that they do not lose their scent. And India is proof of this - they thrust their nationalist ambitions away and started a song on mutual trade worth 80 billion. Now Russia needs to catch India and start building capacity.

      All welcome.
      I also often have the thought that most of our higher bureaucracy was bought in the bud by the Zeno doo.
      Or just tightly hold the eggs with the help of dirt.

      After all, it has long been clearly understood, for two or three years already, from the very beginning of the Arab spring and the pressure of Iran, that the Americans will continue to act more and more impudently.
      And what needs to be deepened and expanded by BRICS
      Translate it into the format of a military alliance. Sly glanders, implicitly. By way of completely harmless agreements on military-technical cooperation. What urgently needs to reconcile India with Pakistan and China with India. To do everything possible so that Brazil and India quickly become superpowers, or as close as possible to this.
      But no. Not only that, they threw Iran with the C300, but also almost nothing was done.
      Until the cock pecked in the ass. In the form of the Ukrainian crisis.

    there is something to think about, the Indian Ocean is not alien to us either, a couple of naval bases with full-blooded anti-aircraft batteries with S-300, S-400 systems, including Iskanderchiks in Ceylon, and Australia will smile sweetly, not talking already on the restoration of influence in the Antarctic ... hi
