The war in Ukraine has brought to center-stage the Eurasian geo-political order, especially the bonding between China and Russia. What do stronger Sino-Russian relations mean for India’s foreign policy? New Delhi is connected with both Russia and China in the Shanghai Cooperation Organization (SCO), the Brazil-Russia-India-China-South Africa (BRICS) forum, the Asian Infrastructure Investment Bank (AIIB), and the Russia-India-China (RIC) trilateral. What these multilateral forums or institutions mean strategically now to India?
India’s cautious stance on the Russia-Ukraine war is being (mis)perceived widely as tacit support to Moscow; New Delhi’s primary focus however is navigating the hardened Western response and not abandoning Russia, a key traditional and contemporary partner. Will the Ukraine-Russia war affect India’s efforts to engage with Eurasia, its growing synergy with the EU, as well as the Quadrilateral Security Dialogue (Quad) in the Indo-Pacific? On May 16th 2022 HCSS Senior Fellow for the Indo-Pacific, Europe, India & East Asia, Dr. Jagannath Panda, joined a discussion with Dr. Satu P. Limaye, director to discuss these issues.
