  • India continues to be the largest consumer of Russian weapons

New Delhi: On Sunday, February 12, Russian state news outlets stated that Russia has given India armaments worth $13 billion over the previous five years.

India has continued to sell goods from Russia despite Western sanctions on that country and international calls for India to halt its trade with Russia following the conflict in the Ukraine. 

India has consistently argued that negotiations and diplomacy are required to put an end to the Russia-Ukraine conflict from that war's outbreak in February 2022, and it has made it plain that it would not sever its economic connections with Russia.

The head of Russia's Federal Service for Military-Technical Cooperation, Dmitry Shugayev, was quoted in the publications as saying that India, China, and certain Southeast Asian nations had retained their interest in purchasing Russian weapons.

India continues to be one of Russia's primary partners in the sphere of military-technical cooperation, Shugayev said, despite the extraordinary pressure on it from Western nations led by the United States in relation to Russia's special operation in Ukraine.

According to the organization, the order book has remained stable at roughly $50 billion, and yearly exports of weaponry are estimated to be between $14 and $15 billion, according to Interfax. Get Export Import Data

According to Shugayev, the S-400 Triumf missile defence systems, Osa, Pechora, and Strela short-range surface-to-air missile systems, MiG-29 helicopters, drones, and Su-30 fighter planes are particularly popular among Russian buyers of defence equipment throughout Asia.

According to TASS, a state news agency in Russia, at the 14th international aerospace show Aero India 2023, which began on Monday, February 13, in Bengaluru, Russia will display roughly 200 examples of armaments and military hardware.

Defense experts, however, are not persuaded by Modi's grand plan. According to Amit Cowshish, a former finance counsellor in the defence ministry, "it is a long haul to become a big exporter from barely a 0.2% stake in global arms exports."

According to the precise operational criteria put forth by the forces, the mission mode projects are high-priority programmes that were supposed to be finished within set deadlines. The operational effectiveness of the military may be impacted by delays in such projects.
