    President Vladimir Putin thanked India for taking a “restrained and objective” stand on Russia’s muscle flexing in Ukraine.

    Addressing a joint meeting of the Russian Parliament on Tuesday on the occasion of Crimea’s reunification with Russia Mr. Putin singled out China and India as the countries that showed understanding for Russia’s role in the Ukraine crisis.

    “We are grateful to all those who understood our actions in Crimea,” Mr. Putin said. “We are grateful to the people of China, whose leadership sees the situation in Crimea in all its historical and political integrity. We highly appreciate India’s restraint and objectivity.”

    India did not join the Western powers’ condemnation of Russia’s intervention in Crimea and kept a low profile on the issue.

    The Ministry of External Affairs on March 6 issued neutral comment expressing concern for the fate of “more than 5000 Indian nationals” in Ukraine and called for “sincere and sustained diplomatic efforts to ensure that issues between Ukraine and its neighbouring countries are resolved through constructive dialogue”.

    National Security Adviser Shivshankar Menon gave a clearer indication of where India’s sympathies lied when he said in reply to a question, “There are legitimate Russian and other interests involved and we hope they are discussed and resolved.”

    India has not reacted to the Ukrainian Ambassador’s request to recognise the new interim government in Kiev and to voice “support against the Russian invasion”.

    China was the only U.N. Security Council member to abstain on a U.S.-tabled draft resolution criticising Russia for Crimea. Thirteen Security Council members supported the resolution, which was vetoed by Russia.

    At the height of the crisis Mr. Putin and Chinese President Xi Jinping discussed on telephone “from close positions” the Ukraine standoff, according to the Kremlin.

    Nothing. Diplomatic corps was instructed to put a big "do not disturb" door hanger, due to elections.

    Ukraine drama benefits our agro-exports, but harms our pharma-exports. So it was in India's interests to not give a damn either way.

    @bhramos India Did not Condemn the Russian Action like the EU and US did they just gave a statement to resolve the issue peacefully addressing the Russian concern in Crimea and Ukraine and did not recognize the new regime in Ukraine

    I hope Vladimir Putin will urge local Russian teams FC Zenit Saint Petersburg and PFC CSKA Moscow to play charity matches in India. These teams are currently playing in UEFA Champions League.

    Meanwhile, senator John McCain calls Russia a gas station masquerading as a country :lol:

    McCain: 'Russia is a gas station masquerading as a country' - Washington Times

    “I think that economic sanctions are a very important step,” Mr. McCain said on CNN’s “State of the Union.” “Russia is a gas station masquerading as a country. It’s kleptocracy; it’s corruption. It’s a nation that is really only dependent upon oil and gas for their economy, and so economic sanctions are important. Give some military assistance to Ukrainians at least so they can defend themselves"

    Wonder what will the US be called if you go by the above definition?

    It is McCain's frustration of being impotent to do anything constructive that is speaking.

    Has he just now realised that oil producing nations are mere gas stations masquerading as countries and that it is all kleptocracy and corruption.

    The whole Middle East is really only dependent upon oil and gas for their economy, and the US backs such kelpetocratic and corrupt nations!

    Now, McCain bacche, I call your diatribe as duplicitous and patently idiotic morality that your Govt is so keenly blathers when they have their diaper in a twist!

    Now don't be so childish, be a Man - a matured man and a seasoned politician = and get cracking with some constructive stuff that the US can do!

    Sorry to state, but Putin has outmanoeuvred you this time.

    Quoting John McCain should be a tripwire for instant thread shutdown, if not its vaporization.

    It is time for the US to sit back, take a deep breath, think and do something constructive to regain its ascendency rather than undertaking knee jerk reactions and not having politician opening the mouth when its not required.

    Crimea is lost.

    There are other area like some regions of Ukraine and part of Modovia that are yearning (check BBC) to rejoin Russia.

    If the US has sense, they should take necessary steps to ensure their supremacy there.
