    India is a dirt poor country. Beggars can't be choosers. To put things in perspective Russia's Per Capita Income is 10X that of India's.

    Don't confuse careful with money with being poor, India has spent billions of dollars on Russian gear in the past and has ongoing projects and programmes to spend billions more in the future.

    There are very poor people in India, but there are very poor people in every country on the planet... the politicians in all those countries live rather well though...

    India cannot be measured with the typical materialist metrics of the west. A lot of Russians think in materialist terms as well. Too many in my
    opinion. India is a country with a lot of depth and should not be treated as second rate. Russians should look at how the f*cking materialist
    west routinely puts them down and then avoid doing the same thing to India.

    Depth in corruption and mediocrity like Africa and Middle East. They  don't even have the money to test even 10% of their population for CORONAVIRUS.

    More good news from that cesspool

    People LIVE in Russia. People SURVIVE in India.

    Russia has a lot of things common with the West, especially Europe. No such similarity with third world states of Africa and Asia like India.

    If they can afford to purchase Russian stuff fine. But given how dirt poor these states are they are of no use to Russia. Another major issue is too much closeness with these states will open the flood gates for migration into Russia. States like UK, Germany, Sweden are prime examples.

    India is not giving too may contracts to Russia.

    Russia has made a start by selling Mi 17, ATGMs to Pakistan. They should increase the volume. Unlike Serbia, Belarus Russia has no cultural or social compatability with pagan states like India. Kremlin should not be a hostage to the whims and fancies of India.

    Make it very clear to Delhi - we will sell a whole lot of cutting edge weapons to Pakistan, unless you buy them yourself. Keep your friends rich, and your enemies rich, and then find out which is which.

    Do you understand how stupid you sound?

    Trying to blackmail India into buying more Russian weapons by selling to Pakistan who is a poor country that has financed and supported anti Russian forces around the world but has little money for the welfare of its own people is hilariously shortsighted.

    Even more amusing is you turning your nose up at those asians... read a newspaper from europe... I would be banned for being racist to asian people but I would probably get my own column in the newspaper for calling Russians niggers... do you understand that? Do you understand what I am saying?

    The europeans you worship and some Indians worship them too by the way, think less of you than you think of people you clearly hate... they will sell you things horrendously over priced or impose sanctions on you and your other customers, but they privately and publicly hate you.

    It is called Stockholm syndrome where a victim falls in love and makes excuses for their abuser...

    Russia needs to grow a pair and realise its future is not with the west... the west has no great future and even if it did it would never consider allowing Russia to share in that future with them... long ago they separated the world into three bits.... us, them (you... ie the commies), and those to be exploited and raped for their resources... the first, second and third world respectively... they can do to the Ukraine what they are doing because it is not a first world country and never will be... you are not allowed to move.
