US prepares $500 million military aid for India to wean it away from Russia - report
US President Joe Biden is doing all he can to checkmate his Russian counterpart Vladimir Putin. As per reports, US is preparing a military aid package for India to deepen security ties and reduce the country’s dependence on Russian weapons. The package under consideration would include foreign military financing of as much as $500 million. This would make India one of the largest recipients of such aid behind Israel and Egypt from U.S. It’s unclear when the deal would be announced, or what weapons would be included. India too hasn't responded on the development yet..
“If you are not paying for something then you are the product “
The Quote fits perfectly in this case.
Friendship can't be bought with money it is expressed through actions. We only expect you to treat us with respect as one friend treats another.
We should avoid the military aid especially from US for the main reason they don't do this without asking back something.
US has one of the greatest technology adopted in their military, which India needs the most , hope in the coming days we are able to do it in house instead of depending on other countries.
No one can break India-Russia bond. Long live their relationship.
UTTER NONSENSE: This act of US redefines utter nonsense, what is $500 million for India, is this a joke? More like insult. Any aid to India which is less than $ 25 billion is gross insult. India has given ( $2 billion to Srilanka on friendship basis )
No matter what India should never leave Russia. For US, India is a Strategic partner means any time they will dump you but Russia always remains in the Heart of India.
It’s not only about discount the main point is whether US is ready to share technology or not?
One Rafale jet with weapon package cost over 200 million dollars.So in 500 million dollars we get 2 and a half Rafale jets.They provide Israel around 3 billion dollars each year.Atleast 5 Billion dollars each year can help India in its modernisation efforts.
Hearing the amount of US defence aid to India Russian laughed & rolled over the floor .
500 m with billions of debt
The maintenance of those equipment will cost a fortune
Indo-rusasian friendship is more important than strategic partnerships with USA.
US gave 4 billion in Military aid to Ukraine recently and the congress approved additional 40 billion to Ukraine in arms and weapons. They think they can convince India for just 500 million
Can 500M$ change the decade of relationship with Russia lol ..this amount can easily be profited through oil purchases..but India sees long term relationship with Russia.. moreover don't use the Pakistani tactics..like how they agreed to give bases for money and all
India is already on a path to military equipment manufacture within India.
Indian are Russia are glued. You can’t tear them apart. They are one.
No matter what , Russia is iron friend of India India very well knows about the artificial friendship of the western powers including USA Long live India Russia friendship !
India should try to bring Russia and USA together and teach them a lesson on Vasudev Kutumbam ....The Whole World is a Family
India knows who is friend and who is enemy lol
we are not pakistan we dont want 500 million. no need . we just need technology
RUSSIA AND INDIA WILL ALWAYS BE TOGETHER :
Even if we source weapons from outside, the will to develop our indeginious weapons industry should not be affected...
Although the amount is small, India should only have defense ties with the US provided there is a condition that they don't supply arms or give aid to Pakistan.
It comes with strings attached , india should be careful of such enticement by uncle Sam
We have seen what was the impact of us aid to Pak ,it is literally military slavery
I will say Russian weapons are best choice for India even if they are less effective than US weapons because Russia never ask india to whom we should use them against ,but US will definitely ask or warn india and if India would use it against Pakistan ,possibility is that US then don't provide maintanence parts for its weapons .
US has always d habit of leaving it allies n favor anti-India countries like Pakistan. To beat Russia, it is a temporary ploy. India sud think carefully n take as many benefits as it can.
Once in the past US extended an olive branch by offering the unsc seat. India rejected. This time again the US is extending its support. India should not commit the same mistake as it did in the past.
India should avoid taking USA aid if they demand to stop purchasing Russian weapons.
We don't need money. We need technology agar wo dega us toh kuch baat bane
What should India choose 500 million dollars which is only allowed to buy American weapons and increase dependency on Americans、
