    The only reason I see Russia entertaining this notion , is in my opinion the fact that Russia is being lobbied by china in relation to the prospect of a proposed energy corridor Via Pakistan.
    IT an initial measure for Russia to keep itself in talking terms with Pakistan so as to keep its options open.

    The markets of the developing nations, the Middle East and Pakistan are going to bring Russia much more money than India.

    India has probably been given access to Russian technology as much as possible. The MiG-35 deal probably made the Russians feel India is not a very good ally also.

    Security and more importantly a non opium based Afghan economy is very important to Russia. That alone might be worth more than Indian partnership.

    There's no reason for China to lobby Russia. Russia has its own interests.

    Kashmiris would disagree with India not being terrorists. That though is something else. You seem agitated. Relax. Russia won't attack India, it just won't be a good ally.

    $35 billion is not a lot compared to opening up the markets and warm water ports.

    I might be missing something here. You all sound like you're crying for some reason.

    Talk about GeoPolitics?

    Russia's primary interest in talking to Pakistani military is counter-terrorism. To think otherwise is nothing but "pursuing wild wet dreams".

    there's only so much technology you can offer someone before they want something different.

    warm waters dont go away though.

    lol.. Russia has many more interests besides counter terrorism. What do you think the Soviet-Afghan war was over?
