Center for International security Research Fellow Dmitry Stefanovich commented on the relations within Russia-China-India triangle for the South China Morning Post.
"Russia had been supplying arms to India since long before the clash in the Himalayas.
“The Russian defence industry, obviously, would like to remain in the Indian market, which is getting more and more competitive, with France and the US being the most obvious challengers,” Stefanovich said".
However, Stefanovich said Russia was unlikely to sign up [to support the Indo-Pacific grouping], given the group’s reputation of being anti-China.
“Russia believes in inclusive regional organisations and cooperation regimes,” said Stefanovich".
