By continuing to buy high ticket items from Russia, India perpetuates Russian leverage on India. Russia uses that to get even more deals linking one to the other. Weapons is not a buyers market. India has to get out of this cycle #StrategicAutonomy

Putin’s flying visit to India apart from trying to reverse India’s close ties with the US, to gauge Indian reaction, get silence if not support on Ukraine? That itself will be in Putin’s calculation to get some daylight between India & the US.

It will not be in India’s interest to stay aloof of potential Russian invasion of Ukraine. It will have a bearing on our conflict with China. And the countries opposing Russian designs are the ones India will look upto for diplomatic and material support in a war against China
