Polish media: S-400 increasingly puts Russia in an uncomfortable position

Deliveries of Russian S-400 anti-aircraft systems are becoming a subject of complex political games in an atmosphere of strained relations between India and China. Russia is forced to balance, trying to take into account the interests of both Beijing and New Delhi. Experts from the Polish edition of Defense 24 are talking about this.

Earlier, the Russian Federation agreed with the Chinese side on the supply of S-400, which began back in 2018. However, the sending of an additional batch of missiles for the air defense system was postponed - one of the reasons for this is the coronavirus pandemic. But there is a more global problem - the triangle of relations between Russia, India and China, and Moscow must eventually decide with whom it is more profitable to trade arms.

The Indian media are currently covering any potential problems with purchases of Russian anti-aircraft and anti-missile systems. It is important for Indian journalists to point out that the possible turbulence around the supply of S-400s to the People's Liberation Army of China is a derivative of other problems on the Moscow-Beijing line. In particular, it is suggested that the delay in shipments of Russian weapons to Beijing is a possible response to the actions of the Chinese special services against the Russian Federation.

It should also not be forgotten that the Russian side is listed as a key player in the possible purchases of the Indian armed forces, made precisely in connection with the growing tension on the border between India and China. The first S-400 complexes are to be delivered to India this year. Thus, the S-400 increasingly puts Russia in an uncomfortable position - Moscow is forced to balance between the interests of the two regional powers. Sooner or later, the Kremlin will have to decide who its main ally is.

    Poland does not face such problems. There is a master, he will say who is an ally and who is not. No need to think, bow down and obey. laughing

    What's the problem? What if the S-400 is being supplied to China, then India is not allowed? Half of the world uses Kalashnikov assault rifles and no one has any problems with this. What if the Mercedes were sold to Poland, but it is no longer possible to go to Russia? On the contrary, if China has it, then India should have it, and Pakistan and Vietnam. The S-400 is a guarantee that your sky will be protected from the enemy and nothing more! And experts from "Desa 24" are better off thinking about themselves. In which case, their territory will be hit by American missiles ...

    Poles are probably better seen from the knee-elbow position.

    However, the sending of an additional batch of missiles for the air defense system was postponed - one of the reasons for this is the coronavirus pandemic.

    In contrast to the "finger suckers" from the Polish Defense 24, as by no means an expert, but a critically-minded man in the street, I still tend to the version that the sending of additional missiles for the S-400 was postponed precisely because of the "coronavirus force majeure".
    And so, remember the words of Karl Marx that for a good profit the capitalist is ready for a lot and his "gradation" of such "readiness", depending on the "percentage of profit" .... Comrade V. Lenin clarified in simple words that very big money, and "the rope on which he will be hung", the greedy bourgeois will sell and will not blink. winked
    And as soon as the production of missiles for air defense missile systems recovers after the "coronavirus pandemic", the supply of "S-400" and ammunition for them will be continued by Russian capitalists at an increasing pace - by all bourgeois standards: "the client is always right" and "demand creates supply"!
    If there are signed contracts for the supply of weapons, then what kind of "political conjuncture" could there be? Is it not the same unprincipled capitalist laws that "rule" in Poland (although yes, the amero-massacre NATO Warsaw is absolutely dependent in its decisions, has no choice and is obliged to purchase only American weapons, at worst - weapons of the countries of this aggressive bloc) ?!
    After all, "Polish experts" know very well that violation of a contract entails penalties, so why "suck" all sorts of conspiracy "fabrications" out of your finger?
    And the buyers of this Russian weapon, "state capitalist-communist" China and "feudal-capitalist" India, let them think for themselves - should they not order more of these excellent Russian air defense systems "in reserve", in case of possible combat losses ?!
    And let Beijing and Delhi agree among themselves - to fight or not to fight, because they did not ask Moscow's opinion when they mutually "brewed porridge" on the Sino-Indian border!
