    Media: Russia made a choice between China and India
    January 15, 2021

    Moscow has proven its priority in relations with Beijing by canceling the Russian-Indian summit due to the overly pro-American policy on the part of New Delhi. Experts from Modern Diplomacy write about the complicated relations in the Russia-India-China triangle.

    Twenty years ago, the Russian Federation and India signed a strategic partnership agreement, after which the Kremlin provided comprehensive assistance to the Indian side both financially, economically, technologically and militarily. Since the agreement was signed, a bilateral summit has been held every year, but it was canceled in 2020, which may be the eve of a serious split in relations between the countries.
    In recent years, there has been a very close rapprochement between India and the United States, which, in particular, was expressed in the signing of the Basic Agreement on Exchange and Cooperation, which completed the formation of a close alliance between New Delhi and Washington.

    India's role in the Asia-Pacific alliance with the United States, Australia and Japan is evidence that Indian interests are fully aligned with American interests.

    The purpose of this alliance is to oppose China and its policies, which contradicts the interests of Russia, which has declared its relations with the PRC strategic.
    If a country wants to harm China, Russia feels obligated to break off relations with it, believes Modern Diplomacy, explaining Moscow's choice in favor of Beijing.

    Agenda...

    As you mention it was about Covid, and not a political or economic or military split... but lets make it about that... because it is in American interests to weaken Russia and China and India by separating them and making them fight each other.... and clearly for this author the Americans pay the bills.

    Very simply if you look 20 years into the future what will happen to India in each case... friends with Russia and China and India will grow and develop and be a power centre... a pole in a multipolar world... not being told what to do or what not to do by Russia or China, but deciding for itself what it wants and what it does not want.

    Friends with the US, well look at China and Russia... the US starts to think you are developing too fast and become a rival or threat to their leadership and you get sanctions and HATO bases on your borders and economic and political isolation.

    Indias future with the west means essentially remaining a big poor third world country with lots of people to buy western shit and to make shit for western people so cheaply they can afford it on their reducing salaries or benefits.

    The west wants to keep the status quo... it is the first world, Russia and probably now China are the second world... and the rest are the third world and you can't move... the west does not share power.

    The so-called first world is a centuries old leech on the rest of the world. So naturally, for this world it is a zero sum game.
    The less countries on its plantation, the less filthy lucre it gets. The phony War on Communism aka Cold War was all about
    keeping the planet as one giant plantation for the benefit of the colonial masters. Globalism was an attempt to keep the
    status quo by using free trade as way to suppress local (national) economic development. This is patently clear from what
    happened in Russia during the 1990s.

    But humanity is not a collection of insect drones. Over time, people push forward and the plantation owners see less and
    less return from their racket. Again, Russia is an example of a country that broke free of the plantation after being put
    on it. This is why Putin is demonized. He puts the welfare of Russia above the welfare of the self-anointed masters
    of the planet. He is setting a dangerous example to those still on the plantation that freedom is possible. By following
    its own path China also breaks the globalist, colonialist system. It became a sweatshop for the first world west but
    has become autonomous and its workers are experiencing an increase in their standard of living.

    I also no longer consider the tag 1st world to be legit. Russia is not some 2nd world. It is the new 1st world. But
    thanks to its own work and not through colonialist parasitism.
