 United States sanctions against Russian arms sales Asian small partners were jointly and severally punished?


[hit Last August, Trump signed a sanctions bill for Russia, Iran and the North Korea, in which Russia is suspected of intervening in the U.S. presidential election in 2016 and the conflict in Ukraine to impose sanctions on more than one individual and a number of entities. Two months later, the State Department issued guidance on the list of sanctions listed in more than 30 Russian military enterprises, including large exporters of weapons and military vehicles, such as Russian Defense products export companies and the well-known gun manufacturer, Kalashnikov. Some Asian countries are in trouble, and India is the first to bear the brunt. Two government officials in India told Reuters that the purchase of the S - 400 air defense missile system to Russia was one of the agreements reached by the Prime Minister of India, Rendla Modi, and Russian President Vladimir Putin in 2016. Now, the military purchase just hit US sanctions. It is difficult to determine that India can buy a large number of weapons from Russia, especially when Russia and the western countries are at a historic low, and India is looking for a little integration with western countries, said Ambohijnan Rey, an expert on the defense strategy of the New Delhi think tank, an observer research foundation. Reuters, a Russian who is familiar with the military purchase of the two countries, reports that Indias plan to buy S - 400 to Russia needs confidence and sober mind. [related to market In Asia, the US sanctions against Russia are more than India. Russias defense minister, Sergei, met with Vietnams defense minister Wu Chunli in Moscow, the capital of the capital, early this month, and agreed on the bilateral military cooperation road map from 2018 to 2020. In addition, Indonesia ordered 11 Suzhou 35 fighters to Russia, two of which could be delivered this year. Indonesian government officials said the order would not change. Indonesian defense officials refused to respond to Reuters reporters questions about how Indonesia intends to respond to US sanctions. [seeking immunity In order to avoid sanctions imposed by the US, India has already started to act. Gu Kaijie, Secretary of foreign affairs of India and Sanjay Mitra, Secretary of defense, visited the United States last month to find a way out. A India government official, who did not want to be named, said it was important for the India military, because no Russian side provided armaments and maintenance services. Our ships were unable to navigate, and the military aircraft could not go to the sky. We can not become a regional security provider expected by the United States. Russia is the largest supplier of weapons and equipment to the India army, and the United States is the second largest supplier. Altman Trivedi, a Washington consultancy manager who specializes in international trade and investment, said that as an important defense partner of the United States, Indias second-hand sanctions would undermine the national security interests of the United States, and the solution was that the United States agreed to give India a exemption. Cara al bakenby, a visiting scholar of the Carnegie Institute for international peace, said that if the US Congress gave India a exemption, Vietnam and Indonesia should be treated the same. The reason is that these countries are building a new, strategic and important defense relationship with the United States.
