Minister of Defense of Russia in 2015 will visit India on an official visit

Anatoly Antonov, deputy head of the Defense Ministry, said that in 2015, Sergei Shoigu, the Russian Defense Minister, will pay an official visit to India.

Cooperation between Russia and India in the military industry is constantly gaining momentum (more than 70% of weapons of the Indian army of Russian production). So, only in the 2013 year Russia put India military equipment on 4,78 billion dollars to India. This year Russia continues to render assistance to the development of the military-industrial complex of India. Joint exercises were held in the area of ​​all three types of armed forces.

In addition, Russia and India are cooperating in the development of new weapons. A supersonic cruise missile BrahMos was created by joint efforts at the Russian-Indian enterprise BrahMos Aerospace, and a fifth-generation fighter is also planned for joint development.

Completely new horizons of cooperation are also opening up. So, as previously reported by EastRussia, commander of the Indian Air Force T. Chanda pointed out the need for further development of projects in the field of military-technical cooperation between the countries, and in particular, in such a new area as cyber defense.

Since, according to the commander, Russia and India have already managed to implement many promising projects in the field of military-technical cooperation, the partners should not stop there. The Russian side should connect with Indian experts in joint development on the issue of cyberwar.

Commander Chand emphasizes that wars are no longer being waged as before: with tanks, aircraft, and maneuvers, traditional war is becoming a thing of the past. Cyberwar as the fifth dimension affects all branches of the military. "The Indian government is also thinking about creating a command for cyber warfare, and in this area, cooperation is possible from the very beginning in the field of creating a cyber doctrine, and in connection with the necessary technologies, we can agree on who supplies what to whom in the field of cyber defense."Commander Chand suggested.

There are other mutually beneficial and promising areas of cooperation for the two countries. So, India could provide Russia with missile defense development in exchange for Russian space technology. Commander points out that you need to start working together in these new areas as soon as possible.
