It seems, Russian Foreign minister Lavrov’s visit has sent shockwaves throughout Indian establishment (25:20). This journalist indicates Indians feel the need to be reassured Russia hasn’t picked sides between China and India (14:42), while India doesn’t want Russia to penalize India for aiding with the US in an alliance that Russia perceived as anti-Russian (discussion on this starts at 12:29, but focused on after 16:40)



He recommends India to resolve its border dispute with China, similar to Russian resolving its border dispute with China (where Russia gave up the primary island in dispute), much to the shock of the Indian interviewer.



Russia perceives that the US considers China and Russia as Enemy Number 1 and Number 2, in different order considering which document from the US establishment you are reading. “Russia takes the world as it is.”



The Russian interviewee says the current situation is worse then the Cold War (19:35). If India rebuffs Biden for calling Putin a killer it will be a signal they are trying to mend this rift with Russia. (26:00)



Russian outreach to Pakistan should be seen a way to get India back and out of US Alliance. (Specifically mentioned 25:20, and again at 27:20 “We are for India in every aspect” , “Pakistan is not on Russia’s Political Map at all”). Despite all the bad blood with the US, Russia will continue support the US presence in Afghanistan and the Russians don’t foresee Americans leaving anytime soon. (28:30)



If Pakistan is to engage with Russia in a more substantial manner, it should be overwhelmingly civilians and economic. Military cooperation should not extend to buying whole fighter jets but would be best left to acquiring small arms, sub-systems and civilian versions of military equipment like the Mi-171 Helicopters.

It’s a win-win situation for Pak.....

India is in the Quad -> Russia engages more with Pak -> win for Pak

India isn’t in the Quad -> the USA engages less with India -> win for Pak

Certain people are doing everything they can to start world war 3.
The Indians think they are using global alliances when they themselves are being used by one major power against the other. If they just make peace with Pakistan, on terms that all free movement of people and goods, as Jinnah had envisioned they will be the “Germany of South Asia” and could leverage their demographic dividend to become an economy that can compete with China. It’s their ego that has bogged them down.

Look at China, overlooking the atrocities committed by the Japanese, to be one of their largest trading partners.

What would India truly lose by unilaterally letting Kashmir go free, on terms they could even set, if they were smart about it. It would free them to cut down on their military and focus resources on their economy. Their 20 year demographic window is closing. The price of not making peace is steeper then they could imagine (living under Chinese Regional Hegemony with a population that is too old to be competitive, a recipe for massive social conflict)
