India is becoming more forceful in its stance against the war in Ukraine to counter criticism for being soft on Russia. However, it still does not hold Moscow responsible for the invasion. It is reported by Reuters.

It is assumed that the country will not change its policy regarding the import of cheap Russian goods, primarily gas and oil.

The publication writes that at the first personal meeting between Russian President Vladimir Putin and Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi after 24 February, the latter made it clear that he condemned the war in Ukraine.

Analysts say the shift in New Delhi, albeit nuanced, reflects concerns about the rising economic cost of the conflict and how it will affect India. The first mobilization of Russian troops since World War II marks a major escalation in the conflict, which has led to market turmoil and threatens a global recession.

Reporters write India is concerned that the war is pushing Russia closer to China, whose relationship is tense with New Delhi. India also hopes its more assertive approach will help it withstand criticism from the West for being too close to Moscow.

P. S. Raghavan, Chairman of the National Security Advisory Council of India and former Ambassador to Russia, said bluntly that India has always wanted a cessation of hostilities in Ukraine, but is now taking a tougher stance.

“This contradicts the assertion that India and China are doing the same thing – that China supports Russia, and India, sitting on the sidelines, also supports Russia,” Raghavan said.

The publication notes that India and Russia have maintained a close relationship for decades: Russia accounted for 5.51 of the $12.4 billion that India spent between 2018 and 2021 on arms imports. In addition, the Russian Federation is one of the largest oil suppliers to India.

The material says that analysts believe that India's sharper position will not harm ties with Russia.

“At present At the moment, India does not intend to completely sever relations with Russia,” said Nandan Unnikrishnan, an employee of the Observer Research Foundation think tank in New Delhi.

After the meeting of Indian Foreign Minister Subramanyam Jaishankar and his Russian counterpart Sergey Lavrov on Saturday In New York, Russia said the ministers stressed “the firm intention to strengthen bilateral cooperation across the entire range of issues of mutual interest.”

We also recall that the President of Kazakhstan called the situation in Russia hopeless. Kassym-Jomart Tokayev promised the Russians who are fleeing to Kazakhstan to ensure security. They will receive assistance, but they will not receive any preferences.
