India’s dilemma in the war: Relations between Russia, Ukraine and India explained

Published

Vishwa Thacker – Mumbai Uncensored, 25th February 2022

The hottest news all around the world today is Russia’s invasion of Ukraine. There are as many opinions as there are people on what stand India should take in this conflict.

Why is India silent? On what side will India stand if war really becomes inevitable? Well, no one can quite predict the answers to these questions yet. But what we can do is, look at the relations between these three countries, and how we go way back with them.

 Relations between India and Russia

We have bilateral relations with Russia. After the disintegration of the Soviet Union between 1988-1991, India maintained a cordial relationship with Russia and shared a special relationship. This is termed as a “special and privileged strategic partnership”. 

Our relationship with Russia covers five areas: defence, anti-terrorism cooperation, politics, space and civil nuclear energy. Both countries are also working towards a free trade agreement. Bilateral trade between us shot up to 24% in 2012.

India is heavily dependent on Russia for its military supplies. 60% to 70% of our military hardware comes from Russia. A BBC World Service Poll of 2014 says that more than 85% of Russians view India positively.

Relations between India and Ukraine

In January 1992, India established diplomatic relations with Ukraine. In 1992, India established an Indian embassy in Kyiv and Ukraine established theirs in New Delhi in February 1993. 

After Russia, Ukraine is our second-largest trade partner. Between 2003-2005, there has been a 3x increase in our trade with Ukraine. 

We have signed more than 17 bilateral agreements with Ukraine which covers areas of Cooperation in Space Research, Avoidance Of Double Taxation and Promotion, Protection of Investments etc. 

Even when Ukraine was a part of the Soviet Union, India enjoyed friendly political relations with Ukraine. We have been positively cooperating with each other at international levels. Ukraine supports India on the resolution of the issue of J&K on the basis of the Simla Agreement. 

India is worried about its 20,000 students and nationals who live in Ukraine.

What happens if India supports Ukraine?

After the disintegration of the USSR, Russia and China have maintained positive relations. In 2001, both countries signed the Treaty of Good-Neighborliness and Friendly Cooperation, a treaty with economic and military cooperation. 

Both countries, as of 2019, felt serious grievances with the United States. Chinese relations with the USA were tense because of the matter of control of the South China Sea, trade policies, and technology policy. 

As for Russia, it is upset about severe economic penalties imposed by Europe and the USA for Russia’s seizure of Ukraine’s Crimea. 

Both countries enjoy an informal agreement to coordinate economic and diplomatic moves and they’ve successfully built an alliance against the USA. 

It is common knowledge that China and India have conflicted on border issues resulting in three military conflicts – the Sino-Indian War of 1962, the border clashes in Nathu La and Cho La in 1967, and the 1987 Sumdorong Chu standoff.

In 2013, these issues re-emerged. In 2018, there was a dispute at the Doklam plateau along the disputed Bhutan-China border. In 2020, we lost 20 soldiers in the Galwan valley.

If there is a full-fledged war, and India supports Ukraine, there are high chances we’ll fight with our border enemy China.

What happens if India supports Russia?

As established above, China and the USA do not see eye to eye. Since 1949, their relationship has been complex. Under the rule of former President Donald Trump, the relationship deteriorated regarding the issues of China’s militarization of the South China Sea.

Soon after, the US launched a trade war and prohibited US companies from trading in Huawei. By May 2020, the relationship worsened as both countries recruited allies against each other and guilt-tripped for the COVID-19 pandemic.

As for Ukraine, the USA is a friend. It supported Ukraine’s bid to join NATO in 2009. Ukrainians view the USA positively according to surveys. More than 33% of the Ukrainian population approves of the leadership of the US.

If war becomes inevitable, there are chances the US will side with Ukraine. 

If losing millions of people in World War 1 and 2 taught us anything, it is that we do everything to prevent such a huge life loss and mass destruction.

Shashi Kumar Tiwari – Mumbai Uncensored, 19th March 2022

Home Minister Amit Shah attended as the Chief Guest of the 83rd CRPF Raising Day Parade on the 19th of March, 2022. It was for the first time that a Central Armed Police Force of India held its Raising Day Parade in the Union Territory of J&K. DG CRPF Kuldeep Singh (IPS) remained present among other higher officials during the parade.

The Home Minister praised and congratulated the CRPF Personnel and their families on their force’s raising day. He said, “Whenever the CRPF is called in to handle a difficult situation, people heave a sigh of relief knowing fully well that things would immediately be brought under control”. He also added about CRPF’s role in the abrogation of Article 370 and that CRPF leaves no stone unturned in order to maintain and ensure national security.

The Maulana Azad Stadium at the foothills of the Shivaliks witnessed the echo of solidarity and the roar of the success of the Central Armed Police Force, as the first one to march past was an “All Women Contingent” on the big day of the CRPF.

Central Reserve Police Force, the Sentinels and Custodians of India’s Peace, Integrity and Sovereignty: 

Raised originally as the Crown Representative Police on 27th July 1939, post-independence, the force was raised by the then Home Minister Sardar Vallabhbhai Patel and was renamed as Central Reserve Police Force by an Act of Parliament on December 28, 1949. This Act constituted CRPF as an armed force of the Union.

It started with saving Bhuj, Patiala and East Punjab and playing a huge role in the amalgamation of princely states in the Union of India in the 1950s to bearing the brunt of facing the first Chinese attack on India at Hot Springs, Ladakh on October 21st,1959. The martyrdom of 10 soldiers of the C.R.P.F. at Hot Springs on Oct 21st is celebrated as the Police Commemoration Day every year. CRPF with just the strength of about one company(135 soldiers) had faced and repelled the attack of a whole Pakistani Brigade (3000+ soldiers)at the Battle of Sardar Post,1965. Counter-Terrorism Operations in the J&K, Counter Insurgency Operations, Anti Naxal Operations, peacekeeping duties in India and even in the regions of Sri Lanka, Liberia and Kosovo or whether it is assisting the Election Commission of India in conducting free and fair elections be it general or assembly. You name it and CRPF does that form of duty to safeguard India.

It is the largest Paramilitary Force in the world with a strength of 350,000+ serving personnel and 246 Battalions. From Kashmir to Kanyakumari and from Arunachal Pradesh to Kutch the CRPF is an omnipotent and omnipresent force. It played a huge role in the Red Corridor of India against the LWE and hence re-establishing the development of Chattisgarh and Jharkhand. It has its own Elite Commando Force called the Commando Battalions for Resolute Action a.k.a. COBRA, which is a specialized force raised for special guerrilla or Jungle Warfare type operations. It also has a special wing called Rapid Action Force (R.A.F.) which specializes in the Riot and Crowd Control Situations. CRPF personnel also serve on deputations in the elite forces/organisations like SPG, R&AW, IB, NSG, NIA, CBI among others.

C.R.P.F.: One of the Most Gallant Forces of India

The CRPF has been serving India now for 83 years and it has achieved tremendous success and has shown indomitable courage in discharging its duties. This very famed and battle-hardened CAPF has bagged as many as 2309 Gallantry Awards for its service to the motherland, some of those are:

1 George Cross , 3 King’s Police Medal for Gallantry, 1 Ashok Chakra, 1 Padma Shree , 1 Vir Chakra, 10 Kirti Chakra, 35 Shaurya Chakra, 49 President’s Police Fire Safety Medal (Gallantry), 202 President’s Police Medal for Gallantry (PPMG),1 Yuddh Seva Medal, 5 Sena Medals, 4 Vishisht Seva Medal, 1871 PMGs, 5 IPMGs, 6 Jeevan Rakshak Padak and 114 Prime Minister’s Police Medals.

The CRPF was also adjudged as the “ Best Marching Contingent ” in the Republic Day Parade of 2019 and became the Best Marching Contingent of 2022 under the People’s Vote Category.

How could the youth join the CRPF?

1. Through UPSC CAPF Assistant Commandant (AC) Exam, conducted annually.

2. Through SSC CPO SI Examination, conducted annually.

3. Through SSC GD Examination, conducted annually.

4. Through other notified and advertised vacancies by the CRPF.

विवेक अग्निहोत्री निर्मित नुकत्याच प्रदर्शित झालेल्या ‘काश्मीर फाईल्स’ या चित्रपटाचे देश भरातून कौतुक केले जात आहे. काश्मीरी पंडितांच्या अत्याचारांवर आणि त्यांच्या बलिदानावर आधारित असा ‘काश्मीर फाईल्स’ चाहत्यांच्या मनोमन रुजत चालला आहे.

अश्याच अनेक चित्रपटांचा संदर्भ देत चित्रपट निर्माते महेश नेने यांनी विवेक अग्निहोत्री यांचे गोड कौतुक करत त्यांचे आणि त्यांच्या टीम चे आभार मानले आहेत. ऐतिहासिक चित्रपट तसेच आपल्या मातृभूमीला लाभलेले थोर पुरुष यांच्या शूर गाथा जाणून घेणे आजच्या पिढीसाठी कसे गरजेचे आहे याचे महत्व त्यांनी पटवून दिले.

नुकत्याच अनावरण झालेल्या त्यांच्या ‘चिमाजी अप्पा – एक अविस्मरणीय योद्धा’ या चित्रपटाचा संदर्भ देत त्यांनी हिंदवी स्वराज्याच्या आणि पेशव्यांच्या लढाई आणि बलिदानात मोलाचा वाटा असणाऱ्या काही योद्धा आणि सेनापतींबद्दलही सांगितले. त्यांचा इतिहास त्यांचे बलिदान याचे स्मरण पुढील पिढ्यांना होत रहावे आणि त्यादृष्टीकोनातून काश्मीर फाईल्स सारखे चित्रपट पुढे नेणे किती महत्वाचे आहे हे त्यांनी सांगितले.

“बाबर आणि अकबर मध्ये अडकलेला आपला इतिहास त्याही पुढे जायला हवा. आणि इतिहासातील काही नग्न सत्य समाजापुढे उभी रहायला हवीत आणि ते काम विवेक अग्निहोत्री आणि त्यांच्या टीम ने केले आहे. आजच्या पिढीसाठी हा चित्रपट प्रेरणादायी ठरेल” अशी प्रतिक्रिया त्यांनी दिली.


चिमाजी अप्पा – एक अविस्मरणीय योद्धा या त्यांच्या चित्रपटाबद्दल बोलताना त्यांनी पेशव्यांच्या पोर्तुगीजांविरोधी लढ्यात चिमाजी अप्पा यांचे महत्व रेखाटले असल्याचे सांगितले. शस्त्र आणि शास्त्रांत निपुण असलेले श्रीमंत बाजीराव पेशवे यांचे धाकटे बंधू चिमाजी अप्पा हे पेशवे आणि निझाम हैदराबाद च्या लढ्यात मुख्य भूमिका निभावत होते. त्यांनी उत्तरेकडील मोहिमेत उज्जैन मधील मुघल सुभेदारांना हरवून उज्जैन पर्यंत मराठा साम्राज्याचा विस्तार केला. 

कोकणातील वाढत चालेल्या पोर्तुगिजां विरोधात लढ्याची जबाबदारी चिमाजी अप्पांवर सोपवण्यात आली होती. 

दरम्यान कल्याण आणि ठाणे जिंकून उत्तरेकडे कूच करुन पेशव्यांची मदत करण्याकरता हि मोहीम सोडावी लागली. त्यांच्या गैरहजेरीत पोर्तुगीजांनी पुन्हा ठाण्यावर कब्जा केला. उत्तरेकडील मोहीम संपवून चिमाजी अप्पांनी पुन्हा एकदा कोकण मोहीम हाती घेतली ज्याचा शेवट वसईचा किल्ला मिळवून झाला. परंतु या मध्ये मराठा सैन्याचे फार नुकसान झाले. परंतु चिमाजी अप्पांनी हार मानली नाही आणि एके दिवशी सैन्याची सर्व ताकद एकवटून वसई किल्यावर खुल्या मैदानातून हल्ला करत काबीज केला आणि कोकण मोहिमेत आपले ऐतिहासिक योगदान दिले. 

चिमाजी आप्पा यांची शौर्यगाथा लवकरच प्रेक्षकांच्या भेटीला येणार असल्याचे महेश नेने यांनी सांगितले.
