US Sanctions Aimed At Affecting India-Russia Defence Ties, Says Russian Ambassador To India Nikolay Kudashev


Russia has accused the US of taking steps specifically aimed at reducing Russia’s defence, military and political ties with India. In an interview to Russian international news agency RIA Novosti, Moscow’s ambassador to New Delhi Nikolay Kudashev said the sanctions that the US has imposed on Russia are among other things aimed at replacing Moscow as a key ally of New Delhi.

The US sanctions against Russia also target organisation and countries which have strategic, defence and military ties to Russia. Top US officials have appealed to members of the US Congress to take steps to ensure India is not affected by these sanctions since India, despite the bulk of its hardware coming from Russia, is rising as an important defence and strategic ally for the US.

The American have been clear that India cannot be expected to abruptly get rid of all the military hardware and fighter jets it has purchased from Russia over the decades. Read More
