India as a great power will need Russian weapons
Kirill FursovCandidate of Historical Sciences, Senior Researcher, Institute of Asian and African Studies, Moscow State University
Has India already become a power in the South Asian region after at least the victorious third war with Pakistan in 1971 and the 1974 nuclear tests? next in line is the achievement of the status of a power within Asia as a whole.
Therefore, a number of Indian politicians call the entire zone from the Persian Gulf to the Malacca Strait a legitimate sphere of the country's interests. Indeed, maintaining security in this wide area is becoming an increasingly pressing issue for the development of India itself. As analysts emphasize, if each country has regional interests, the great powers also have a regional responsibility. The interests of India are pushing her to assume an increasing share of this responsibility. Therefore, India's demand for Russian military equipment will not only remain, but, most likely, will continue to grow.
