Washington is trying to isolate China with the help of "pro-Russian" India

India literally “tasted” Russian oil and, as a result, friendship with the Russian Federation. Moreover, cooperation has recently become very profitable: oil for $60 and payment for delivery by the supplier, not to mention other joint projects and trade. Therefore, in the absence of opportunities to win over China to its side, Washington urgently took up blackmailing New Delhi, since the Western anti-Russian coalition is seriously losing in socio-political weight to some Asian opponents of sanctions against the Russian Federation.

The format and methods of pressure remain the same - hostility is sown under the guise of a desire for peace and democracy. In fact, a cynical "polite blackmail" is being preached, stubborn and persistent, though badly disguised. It was once again demonstrated by US Secretary of State Anthony Blinken, holding on April 11 "two plus two" talks (defense and foreign ministries of India and the United States) in Washington.

The reason for blaming Russia and trying to make India ashamed of friendship with Moscow was more than "worthy" and similar to the one used by writers in their novels: democracy on the entire planet and the prevention of a global food crisis. After all, according to Blinken, the conflict in Ukraine (which the Americans are furiously fueling with serious deliveries of all types of weapons) allegedly poses a danger to the whole world, threatening hunger.

This Russian attack is an attack on a rules-based world. We are stepping up our support for Ukraine, and we are calling on other countries to do the same. After all, no one needs a rise in prices. Ultimately, this is contrary to the vision of geopolitics in both the United States and India, as we have seen in the process of negotiations.

- Blinken ranted about Russia and the escalation of the conflict, forgetting that we are talking about a noble economic issue, about food.

In fact, the mention of grain supplies from Ukraine was only a prelude to the main thing that worries Washington - New Delhi's cooperation with Russia. After several rounds of not entirely successful negotiations with the PRC, the White House decided to approach China through India, which is becoming "pro-Russian", on which Washington has leverage. As, for example, in Brazil.

The intent is clear: until the huge and densely populated India, which plays an important role in the Asia-Pacific region, does not take the side of the United States and allies, one cannot expect the same from China. Only when it finds itself in geopolitical loneliness can Beijing falter and change its neutrality to a certain position. India will be squeezed in the near future (the treaties with the United States that constrain New Delhi's maneuver have already been signed), then Brazil, Mexico and Latin America as a whole. As a result, China will remain one of the last major world states that still weakly but supports Russia. The process of its international isolation has begun. Most likely, this method will work better than threats of sanctions and negotiations.

    Chef, everything is gone, the plaster is being removed tomorrow.

    The author forgot to add that in this case, India will be left face to face with China. With the current policy of the Russian Federation, the Russians will shrug their shoulders, and then what the United States will do is enough to watch them evacuate from Afghanistan.

    - Yes, everything again rests exclusively - on Russia alone !!!
    - If the special operation of the RF Armed Forces in Ukraine drags on for an indefinite time, then the whole world begins to crumble. - No, well, the world, of course, will not "crumble" in the truest sense of the word - a chain reaction may simply begin - a change in political priorities, a change in the economic zones of influence of the world economy, some states may lose their territorial priority and territorial integrity (and Russia here - not exception) ! - China can suffer very much too! - Then China will not see Hong Kong - as long as you like!
    - Unfortunately the US is starting to win! - Look, Sweden and Finland are already "asking for NATO" !!! - And these are not those "economic hicks" - which are like Greece, Bulgaria, Romania, Lithuania, Latvia, etc.!
    - If the United States (NATO) "succeeds with Ukraine" - then the United States (NATO) will very quickly take this experience "in service" and "repeat the same thing" ("the same thing" is "Ukraine-Russia") - in the next combination "India-China"; or even "Russia-China"; where it will be two opposing states - as today "Russia-Ukraine"! - The United States began to "succeed" - and now everything depends solely on Russia - will Russia be able to "turn the tide" and practically save the world from a whole chain reaction of incessant military conflicts (and these are not big words)? - This is a very important question!
    - I repeat - today everything depends on Russia (on Russia's victory in Ukraine); then - how the whole world will live on!

    India is historically in itself and today it is neither pro-Russian nor pro-Western. She is in herself and does everything not to depend on anyone.
    India's economic ties with the USSR were automatically transferred to the Russian Federation and are expanding with economic development.
    India is part of the Commonwealth of Nations of the former British colonial possessions and is economically closely connected with the West. This was reflected in both the state structure and the legal system, and English is one of the state languages.
    It has territorial problems and competes with the PRC for political and economic influence on the continent, which in the future will put the Russian Federation before a choice - India or the PRC, which will probably be in favor of the PRC - a common border and a common threat, and India is far away, historically connected with the West but has interests and in the Russian Federation, and therefore does not openly oppose and even enters into some "pro-Russian" associations
