    Another option would be tariffs and sanctions... that way if the US objects Russia can offer to remove sanctions on certain things in return for western sanctions and tariffs to be lifted too...

    Specifically the US ban on the import of Russian small arms would be useful and profitable...

    One idea that is floating around the Duma is for Russia to stop recognizing US patents

    Many of the South East Asian nations are trying to counter Chinese domination, an allaince with Russia does not really offer that. So I can understand why Indonesia wants to get closer to the USA, in addition of the other benefits.

    The problem of the approach is that it is not Indonesia that is going to use the US as a ram against China, but the other way around...

    Indonesia is not gonna be a ram against China, but allowing the USA to use one of their thousands of islands as a base is not a bad idea.
