However, a special resonance was caused by a joint statement by Russian President V. Putin and Indian Prime Minister N. Modi, which refers to the intensification of cooperation within the Russia-India-China framework. According to many experts, such a union, no less, is able to change the architecture of the world.
The composition of the community is even more intriguing. It should be recalled that there are a number of territorial disputes between India and China, the roots of which stretch back to the 40s of the last century, when the countries gained independence. Obviously, “future partners” cannot do without an intermediary who will help resolve the conflict. And Russia is ideally suited for this role.
We should also note the goals of the new community, one of which is to counteract the expansion of protectionism and unilateral sanctions. Based on this, the conclusion suggests itself that this union is created as a counterweight to the collective West.
So can the recent words of the French leader E. Macron, about the end of Western hegemony, become prophetic?
