India, Russia discuss $4bn deal for 4 stealth frigates
NEW DELHI: In what could turn into yet another mega defence deal with Russia, bilateral negotiations have gained momentum for India’s acquisition of four more stealth frigates for around $4 billion.
Even as the high-level India-Russia Military Technical Cooperation Working Group (MTC-WG) kicked off its two-day meeting here on Wednesday, defence ministry sources said Moscow has submitted “a techno-commercial proposal” for the four multi-purpose frigates packed with sensors and weapons, including the BrahMos supersonic cruise missiles.
“Under the proposal, two of the frigates will come from Russia, while the other two will be constructed in India. The MoD has asked for some clarifications before taking a decision on the price and inter-governmental agreement,” said a source.

India is probably the only Nation in the world to have aligned with both USA and Russia. None other have mastered the art. Credit goes to every government, right from mid-60s. One differentiation Modi brings in is bringing USA closer to India, and yet continuing good rapport with Russia.
