India and Russia have a very good relationship. When India needs help, Russia can often provide the strongest support. For example, after the outbreak of the India-Pakistan conflict, India was in urgent need of weapons and equipment, and Russia immediately signed a contract with India to transport a large number of advanced weapons to India. Now that India is in urgent need of weapons and equipment due to border issues, Russia has opened its arsenal and quickly exported its stock fighters to India. This support is not negligible.
According to Indian media reports on August 25, in response to the Indian-Russian arms trade, the Indian side has made a request to Russia, hoping that Russia can speed up the supply of aviation equipment and parts, and will S- A series of weapons such as 400 air defense system, MiG-29K carrier fighter, T-90 main battle tank and Kilo-class submarine were exported to India. At the same time, India also hopes that Russian military-industrial enterprises can provide 1,700 shoulder-fired anti-aircraft missiles and a large number of guns and ammunition for emergencies. A source from the Indian Ministry of Defense pointed out: “Based on the good bilateral relations between India and Russia, all of our suggestions have received positive responses from the Russian side.”
Earlier, Indian Defense Minister Singhrajna He visited Russia in person, hoping that Russia could speed up the supply of S-400 air defense systems. Regarding this request from India, Russian Prime Minister Yuri Borisov said: "Our conversation is very positive and fruitful." The implication is that Russia has agreed to the request to speed up the supply of weapons. According to relevant data, the Indian government has given the three armed forces the right to make emergency purchases, and their adjustable funds are up to Rs 5 billion.
The Indian Armed Forces have obtained the emergency procurement power, which is great news for Russia. Because, at this time, only Russia, the world’s second arms dealer, can meet India’s needs and export a large number of advanced weapons to India in a short period of time. Therefore, India's 5 billion rupees will probably fall into Russia's pockets. In this regard, the Indian side also said that taking advantage of the border crisis, the relations between Russia and India will be greatly warmed up.
It is worth mentioning that, in addition to supporting India in the military, Russia also supports India in diplomacy and politics. Regarding India’s election as a permanent member of the UN Security Council, Russian Foreign Minister Lavrov gave a speech. He said: “The main flaw in the composition of the Security Council is its under-representation in developing countries.” The UN Security Council should include it. Developing countries have joined, and among the developing countries, the most representative country that has not joined the Security Council is India. So to say Russia means to allow India to join the UN Security Council.
