India refused to cancel the air parade in honor of the Republic Day for the sake of the participation of Barack Obama

January 26 will host an air parade in honor of Republic Day in India, to which President Barack Obama was invited as the main guest.

The US intelligence agencies demanded that a five-kilometer-long no-fly zone be introduced around the location of the US President in the VIP tribune, which India refused.

"In this case, it meant canceling the entire air part of the military parade due to Barack Obama's visit and thereby robbing all other spectators, depriving them of their favorite show."- TASS leads source words in the Indian Defense Ministry.

India is not going to cancel the parade. 18 fighters, 5 planes and 10 helicopters will pass over its capital in a well-coordinated formation at an altitude of 60 to 300 m above the ground. The pride of the parade should be the flights of the Su-30MKI, MiG-29K and Jaguars.

At the same time, India has already agreed to take unprecedented security measures at the insistence of the United States. So along the route of the President thousands of modern expensive video cameras were installed, and on the roofs of all high-rise buildings, sniper sockets were installed and modern air defense systems were installed. Seven police cordons will be set up around the VIP tribunes, and 80 thousand policemen and 10 thousand military men will take part in patrolling and cordoning off the main avenue.

Unprecedented security measures raised harsh criticism from the Indian public. The Indian Government received a message from the Delhi Supreme Court, stating that "the Indian authorities never make so much effort for their citizens and as quickly as they do for a foreign president."
