India-Russia Relations in the Emerging World Order by K.B. Usha

Interesting read…

The fifteenth India-Russia annual summit took place in a fast changing global geopolitical scenario and in a challenging moment in world politics. India and Russia emerged as vital strategic partners representing global transformation from a unipolar world order dominated by one centre to a multipolar order based on multilateralism, principles of UN Charter, non-intervention, cooperation, convergence of national interests, mutual understanding and trust. This is because of the perceived failures of the American “unipolar moment”, which is guided by the principles of pre-emptive strikes, regime change, disarmament and intervention. After twenty-five years of Soviet disintegration, the current geopolitical realities like rift in the US-Russia-Europe relations over Ukraine conflict, global oil crisis, economic crisis, Euro zone crisis, conflict in West Asia, NATO military build-up and expansion to Russia’s border, escalation of terrorist attacks in Europe, emergence of BRICS countries, Russia’s shifting priorities to Asia-Pacific, commencement of Eurasian Economic Union, and shifting power alignments from west to east expose the dangers of unilateralism and reflect a paradigm shift in the world order.

One thought on “India-Russia Relations in the Emerging World Order by K.B. Usha

  1. India is now biased towards the English-speaking Western countries, and this seems to be a long-term shift and turnaround from Soviet years. Even when the Indian ruling party BJP goes, this partiality is likely to stay, like how Indian National Congress party sided with the Soviet although in principle was neutral based on Non-Alignment Movement (NAM). Many Indians seem to favour this because there are many Indians who have emigrated to USA, Canada, UK, Australia and other EU nations.
    Like Jack says in the Titanic movie to the little girl, an Indian diplomat may tell a Russian, “You are still my best girl.”
