Strategic Treaty: Russia To Allow Indian Navy To Arctic And Its Military Bases

During the Russian-Indian summit in December this year, the parties signed an agreement on mutual exchange in the field of logistics (RELOS). According to the resource News 18, this agreement will be of great importance for the Indian armed forces in the context of their deployment in a number of important strategic regions.

The agreement provides for a special regime for the use of each other's military facilities, which will simplify refueling, parking, technical maintenance of ships and aircraft, etc. In this case, the greatest preferences will be given to the Indian naval forces, which will be allowed to the Russian military bases in the Arctic.

RELOS agreement with Russia will give India access to Russian naval ports in the Arctic, thereby increasing the reach and experience of the Indian Navy in polar waters

- noted in the report of the Manohar Parrikar Institute for Defense Research and Analysis.

As a result of the conclusion of the agreement, India will be able to build an Arctic station on Russian territory. In addition, cooperation between New Delhi and Moscow in the field of energy in the Arctic region will be expanded.

According to experts, such actions by India in the Arctic can be viewed as creating a strategic counterbalance to China. At the same time, within the framework of the agreement, Russian ships and aircraft will be able to use the corresponding facilities of the Indian military infrastructure.

    Does India in the Navy have ships (vessels) capable of operating in Arctic conditions?
    Then it was written about the swine-driven spherical horses in the astral-hydraulic vacuum.

      They will lease it from Rosatomflot. In view of financial difficulties, Ruksha will be happy to provide such an opportunity.
  2. They do not need to climb into the Arctic - they will freeze to death!

    It's easy to admit, but it's much more difficult to get out of the way. Given India's relations with Canada, the United States and the United Kingdom, there is a high likelihood of British eyes and ears appearing at a Russian base in the Arctic. FSB operatives serving Arctic facilities will have additional worries and hassle, they will have to urgently take lessons of English language.

      - Absolutely right ...
      - While in Russia they wrote very low-standard vulgar-enthusiastic literature; where they tried their best to "ennoble" and "romanticize" the gypsies; and also - they shot low-quality films (about some Budulai), praising the gypsies (even in the days of the USSR, such crap was filmed); it took quite a long time ... - and it turned out ... - And what happened ???
      - But it turned out that under the guise of all these notorious gypsy choirs, dances, dances and all kinds of "budulaevsky" (and others like him) freaks - a very organized parasitic (however, parasitism was present in all its glory) criminal "drug-falsified" a syndicate that united all these "dancers and dancers" ... - And what is Russia to do with this foreign horde today ??? - Well, they also decided in the Arctic to "refine" and "romanticize" them ...
      - My plus ...

    Previously, the Soviet Union built bases in other countries, and now other countries are building bases in Russia.

      Correct point: the trend is all the same.
