Russia and America lobby silent India Interesting situation. Obviously no one cares about the facts at this point. The flight seems to have no importance and has become a pawn in a game played by both sides. The main question will be what can we gain by either supporting one side or the other. The American side seems like they are issuing a threat (support us or else), while Russians just want status quo to be maintained. Is the security council position relevant these days? it almost seems like a defunct organization that has little control or say in things. While the Russians recently have been flip floppy in their deals, denying of ToT, and they are also cozying up to the Chinese. Lets see which way Modi goes.
