Vostok 2022 : India joins Russia and China
An Indian Army contingent is participating in the Vostok 2022 exercise in Russia. Chinese military is part of the drills too. The US and Japan have expressed their concern. What are New Delhi's options?
Keep in touch is better than to break bridges. This is a policy Europe should have followed since the last 25 years .

By participating in this military exercise, India's diplomatic acumen has risen to a crescendo unequivocally. We have come of age in making decisions paramount to Indias interest .
Russia and Japan both have contributed significantly in building of many crucial industrial complex in India after independence in 1947. Even today India's first Bullet Train porject is about to complete with the help of Japanese know-how. Like it or not but this is how Indian diplomacy work..."taking advantage of all the sides without compromising core national interest"
Our diplomacy is so confusing even we get surprised and puzzled.
Pure genius to sanction a huge country
India Army joined their army exercise,
Navy is not participating in their exercise near Japan looking at the ties of India with Japan.
It would be nice for the West to have India as an ally against China. But a neutral India is enough.
“Birds of a feather flock together”.
India is going to hold military exercise with US in uttrakhand near ladakh .....china is already pissed by that.
As a westerner I can see it’s a hard one for India in the end they have to do what’s best for them
Trick is to choose a side that is more inline with your values I say pick based on values not interests.
Not too long ago, US and its allies held a joint military exercise and now it's Russia and its allies. May God bless these men with wisdom to handle differences and conflicts. No WWIII please!
What is the position of Russia if the border conflicts between China and India begin again? Certainly, Russia will call for calm so as not to upset any belligerent. Vostok 2022 is a strange military exercise, with stranger participants, de ocratic states and

0:56 Well China is allied with Russia. Yes India SHOULD be there. India should not be 'bullied' into taking sides between Russia and the U. S. The "balancing act" is a good idea.
India is a country I actually respect for its strong army and its strive to better itself. I'm really sorry though that it chose to side with Russia. I think an alignment with the west would play much more in its favor and in the favor of the free world in the long run.
As far as Unkrain war's concern India just want peace , participating in Vostok22 drill is part of relation with Russia as usual.
Thankfully Japan is rearming itself.

My respect has gone up for people in India. Much much respect to these people
I love the fact that India is playing the perfect courtier but they should remember that standing in between the line means you have no partner
It is always wise to go for good relationship with neighbors.
I don't understand what we should focus on war or climate change ? Results from both are imaginable and unimaginable.
The perfect spy doesn't ex....
This is just diplomacy by the military. It would not be good to stand Russia up at these exercises. The way to keep Russia from fully entering the Chinese orbit is to participate with Russia. And as pointed out there was no naval contingent just army.
Sad that India chooses to cuddle up to two brutal , one which has ambitions to take part of India and rule the Indian Ocean.
India can't continue playing on both sides and needs to take a stand.
Participating in this Vostok 2022 exercise in Russia, gives every soldiers a chances of exposure , to gain some experience from one another.
Argentina too is supposed to sent soldiers to russia this very month but this was planned since the beggining of this year it has nothing to do with ukraine i just hope they don't get boycotted or sanctioned.
India is not anybody's colony it has a right to exercise it's sovereignty right and interests
US makes india his insider to its enemy well played US
When I was young, my father would tell us that, if you stand on 2 boats at the same, you are bound to fall and drown.
By participating with china India had proven that it has neutral stand.
