India is not “shaky” Mr. President… it is only being sensible

New Delhi has other things to look out for, especially having a troublesome neighbor like China and in the moves of Washington and Moscow to get Beijing on their sides. In this game of international politics, nothing can be discounted. And both scenarios are not in the best interests of India.

One month into his blundered invasion of Ukraine, the President of Russia, Vladimir Putin, is finding that the stalemate on the ground is something that had not been visualized of even in the wildest of his dreams. Putin and his close coterie of military advisers probably thought that Volodymyr Zelensky would flee the country like many dictators and tyrants have done around the world in the past—of course with enough loot to sustain them and their bandwagon for quite some time. Zelensky is not only staying put and taunting Putin on a daily basis, but also that the Ukrainian army and citizens are fighting back and giving the invading forces something to think about.

In the midst of all the rhetoric flying around world capitals, President Joseph Biden of the United States does not want to be missed out and is pressuring countries like India to join the Western flock in teaching Moscow a lesson. Addressing a group of business leaders Biden, in extolling the support Washington has been receiving from around the world and nursing the grand illusion of a new world order wrapped around the United States, has called India as being “shaky” in its response to Putin’s aggression. Biden obviously has in mind of New Delhi abstaining thrice in United Nations voting against Russia even while condemning the aggression against Ukraine.
