Moscow could support India as a mediator but Kiev shows no interest.
Written by Ahmed Adel, Cairo-based geopolitics and political economy researcher
The international order maintains exclusively Western features, but this is quickly disappearing because of the impact the conflict in Ukraine has had in advancing multipolarity. In the context of a rapidly changing global system, India is set to gain more so than any other country as it was presented with an opportunity to consolidate its importance in the international community, one that it took full advantage of.
A “world order which is still very, very deeply Western,” as Indian Foreign Minister S. Jaishankar said in an interview with the New York Times, is being hurried out of existence by the impact of the war in Ukraine and is being replaced by a world of “multi-alignment” where countries will choose their own “particular policies and preferences and interests.”
Since the conflict in Ukraine began on February 24, New Delhi has refused to align itself with Washington and Brussels, despite pressure, to condemn the Kremlin’s actions and impose sanctions. Instead,India turned Russia into its main oil supply.
Almost 1.4 billion people live in India and it is possible that it will soon surpass China as the most populous country on the planet. For this reason, the South Asian country desperately needs cheap energy sources, such as those provided by Russia, to sustain an annual growth rate of 7% and keep millions of citizens out of poverty.
Jaishankar stressed that it is time for Europe to end its idea that its own problems are also the problems of the world. He also highlighted that Western economic sanctions against Russia have made energy, fertiliser, and food more expensive, with a negative impact especially felt on poor countries in Africa and Asia.
“I would still like to see a more rules-based world,” Jaishankar said. “But when people start pressing you in the name of a rules-based order to give up, to compromise on what are very deep interests, at that stage I’m afraid it’s important to contest that and, if necessary, to call it out.”
The foreign policy of Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi is to establish partnerships with countries that have shared interests, particularly those that do not impose the expectation of New Delhi being fully aligned with the West.
As the New York Times highlighted on the last day of 2022: “India may have the power to tilt the balance toward an order dominated by democratic pluralism or by repressive leaders” – a Western liberal reference meaning that India can tilt global balance in favour of the West (“democratic pluralism”) or the Global South (“repressive leaders”).
At the same time, the spill over from the conflict in Ukraine, coupled with the economic impact of the COVID-19 pandemic, has fuelled India’s need to strengthen its corporations to reduce risks in global supply chains.India, The New York Times analysed, is relatively protected against global market fluctuations due to its strong domestic economy, which allows it to provide strength abroad.
Thus, projections estimate that India will become the third largest economy on the planet by 2030, only surpassed by the US and China.Part of this huge economic drive is India’s entry into the IT sector and its huge population becoming avid internet users.
A report published on January 2, 2023 by market intelligence firm Redseer Strategy Consultants found that India has the second largest internet user base in the world and is home to 780 million internet users. India’s Internet gross merchandise value (GMV) will grow to about $1 trillion by 2030, equivalent to $5 trillion in public and private market cap. This will also make India a leading country in terms of consumption as the Middle Class continues to grow.
In this scenario, moreover, there is no indication that India is interested in cutting its relations with Russia, which has provided the country with weapons, agricultural development, and technology for decades.Meanwhile, the US traditionally supports India’s regional rival, Pakistan.
None-the-less, Washington is still desperate to bring India under its complete sphere of influence.
US State Department spokesman Ned Price said on January 6 that India can be among the countries that can have a role in diplomacy to end the ongoing Russia-Ukraine conflict even though New Delhi and Washington may not see eye to eye on policy issues.
“We do believe that countries like India, countries that have a relationship with Russia and with Ukraine, may be in a position to help bring about dialogue and diplomacy that could one day put an end to this war,” Price said at the briefing for foreign correspondents.
“We have been in regular, close contact with India regarding what we can do to hold Russia accountable and to impose additional costs on Russia for its war. We may not always share precisely the same policy approaches, but we both share a commitment to upholding a rules-based international order that respects territorial integrity and sovereignty,” he added, while downplaying differences between the two countries.
None-the-less, although it is likely that Moscow will support India as a potential mediator, there is little indication that Kiev is interested in ending the war. At the same time, the war allowed India to take advantage of cheap oil prices, thus projecting its own rapid development, so-much-so that Washington now has no choice but to consider India as a serious global player.

Same same with Al-Baqistani no? Same same no? Same people, same same poverty?
That America is the largest economy in the world……. is not true. It has no more industries (the vast majority are in China…..). America is a country of services (commerce, restaurants, etc.) it is not an industrial country. So all of America’s big economy is one legend. They live with speculative bubbles (e.g. orange stock prices, they seem to have all the oranges in the world, but there are not so many, they are inflated financial numbers, etc.). It is now a country of appearances! Reality is collapsing.
IF INDIA RULE BASED WORLD THEN WHY IS NOT SHOWING IT. PRACTICAL TERMS BY HOLDING FAIR AND FREE PLEBISCITE IN KASHMIR OR GIVING MINORITIES IN INDIA EQUAL SHARE OF RESOURCES TO UPLIFT THEIR QUALITY OF LIFE Indians are liars ,doubled faced as Palestinians and Arabs have seen it soon Iran will find out the hard way
Do you have the balls to go to Kashmir and fight there?
Chris Gr Absolutely when time is right and it in my interest I am not Pakistani nor Kashmiri unlike you who is ABSOLUTELY ASHAMED OF YOUR TURKISH DNA and to hide your origin you are ASKING A WRONG QUESTION instead of commenting on what I stated shows your level of intelligence
Do I have Mongolic DNA? No. The “Turkish DNA” is Anatolian DNA. Anatolian like Phrygiabn or Lydian.
Chris Gr Where is Anatolia located it is in Turkey Chris be proud of your Turkish DNA
Turkey yes but Turkic DNA means Mongolian.
No, he only has the balls to furiously drive his taxi in Bolton thinking he’s Osama on wheels.
Ahson AKA Indian Dalit boy in brown stained smelly dhoti Absolutely how did you know as you are now a midnight cowboy as soon as you revert to Buddhism Original religion of India then you can talk
Hendu 8000 years old religion. The oldest continuous religion on this planet! older than heenb brew shyster by many millennia. Lets get real no? They’ve subdued you easily…..you are at their mercy now. We the Zartosht ammended the heenb brew religion when Korosh Kabir saved them from the Iraqi’s more than 2600 years ago. The shyster started worshiping the golden calf……it was our Magi who told them about monotheism. We created the heenb brew, in our ‘matlabi’ image. You understand?
Ahson AKA Indian Dalit boy in brown stained smelly dhoti So say Hinduism is older than Buddhism?
Of course fool. Clear as day yous ain’t educated no? Buddhism is a young religion compared to henduism.
Ahson Absolutely AKA Indian Dalit boy in brown stained smelly dhoti AKA midnight cowboy Why are you jealous because you were banned?

Ahson AKA Indian Dalit boy in brown stained smelly dhoti Please prove it
Ahson Aka Indian Dalit boy in brown stained smelly dhoti AKA midnight cowboy JUST LIKE LOWER CASTE CONVERT FROM BUDDHISM TO HINDUVETA HENCE YOUR FANATICISM
Zoroastrianism is an Iranian religion and has nothing to do with Hendu or Buddhist. Go read about the Zoroastrian faith.
Ahson AKA Indian Dalit boy in brown stained smelly dhoti Can you prove that you are Zoroastrian Otherwise in past you used Abu Gida and many other names Without proper credible evidence you are Indian Dalit boy
I use many names in many places. People generally steer clear of me.
Kashmir is part of India. End of story. Kashmiri jihadists and Wahhabis should be defeated.
Baqistan has collapsed. Check da news. People are fighting and dying over sacks of flour.
Absolutely That why you are in Ukraine working as midnight cowboy
Evidently, your Al-Baqistan is on borrowed time…….get real.
Ahson AKA Indian Dalit boy in brown stained smelly dhoti It living on your mercy and charity
Ahson AKA Indian Dalit boy in brown stained smelly dhoti It collapsed many many years ago you are behind times
Right, good that you acknowledge the truth. Now all you got is your failed religion to cling onto. You want me to hold your hand?
War accelerates social change and the change does not favor the US ..but now promotes a different world order.
Hopefully not a WEF order. Not a neoBolshevik beaurocratic tyranny.
Why would Russia be asking India to be a “mediator” when it did THIS https://www.911research.wtc7.net/wtc/groundzero/cleanup.html at the American peoples expense and took full advantage of the U.$. government’s pretext to secure American manufacturing as well as the looted resources from Libya, Syria, Iraq and Afghanistan in exchange for their $ilence/Compliance???… Rin$e and Repeat with the PRC!…
The only way Russia succeeds is by leaving the UN Ca$in0/Wh0reH0u$e and announcing that it negotiates NOTHING with a neighbor that has been thoroughly infiltrated and hijacked since 2014 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WV9J6sxCs5k (wife of https://ifamericansknew.org/us_ints/nc-pilger.html) by the same terrorists that did 9/11 https://wikispooks.com/wiki/9-11
The only way the PRC and INDIA find “peace” is through redemption when they leave said UN Ca$in0/Wh0reH0u$e after the Russian Federation in tandem and proclaim that an attack on Russia WILL BE AN ATTACK on the PRC and INDIA!…
Until those day(s) happen Russia you have no friends. Only customers for all your priceless energy that will keep using “carrots” and “sticks” under the tutelage of Uncle $hmuel at your expense!…
Matt Absolutely correct RUSSIANS HAVE FAILED TO LEARN A LESSON OF ARAB/INDIAN RELATIONS HOW ARABS WERE TREATED LIKE VIPS BUT ALL THE TIME INDIANS WERE BUILDING RELATIONSHIPS WITH ISRAEL AND ARABS WERE BEING STABBED FROM THE BACK EXACT IS HAPPENING RUSSIA AT MOMENT IS BEING HYPED BUT BEHIND THE SCENES INDIA IS BUILDING IT RELATIONSHIP WITH QUADS AND DECIDED TO SIT ON USA LAP YOU CAN SEE FROM RECENT LULA’S INAUGURATION INDIA WAS ABSENT DESPITE OF BEING PART OF BRICS do this say something about INDIAN HYPOCRACY RIGHT INDIANS BEING HYPED BY zionist IN PROMOTING AKHAND BHARAT IE AFGHANISTAN PAKISTAN UZBEKISTAN AND IRANIAN BALUCHISTAN TO BE CONQUERED AND INTEGRATED INTO INDIA
Pakistan is part of Bharat actually. However, we should ally with Pakis and Iranians if they are against globalism. However, India is the superior one, you will see it in the future.
Chris Gr Why not if India adheres to Rule based SYSTEM AND DOES OBEY THEM INSTEAD OF LECTURING INDIA CAN DREAM OF BECOMING ECONOMIC SUPERPOWER BUT IT REQUIRES NATURAL RESOURCES WHICH IT DOES NOT HAVE SO THEY LEARN HOW TO RESPECT NEIGHBORS AND WORK WITH THEM INSTEAD OF GETTING HYPED UP BY zionist and USA
India is not hyped by Zionists or USA. India can do alone and non aligned. On the other hand, Turks, Pakis and Azeris bullied Armenians all together for no reason.
No shit. India is doing well. They got good leadership.
Ahson Just like you are doing well as midnight cowboy in trenches of Ukraine
The hendu has subdued your colonial army. Their economy is 30 times your size now. You will revert back to dalit hendu down the road. There is no way out for you. Your country is not viable. A nation created on the flimsy whim of religion will not last. Israel too is in your shoes…….Both you and the Israeli’s are on borrowed time. Your bankruptcy is proof of this.
Iran is the only one to come out of the closet on the Truths of 9/11 to their credit.
Having said this. They’ve made plenty of mistakes in allowing their dual nationals to come and go as they please in the U.S., U.K. and Western Europe that has hurt them as well and should have done differently in hindsight given the attacks like Russia to their infrastructure and counter revolutions we’ve witnessed in recent years.
What 9/11 truths muhammad balu singh? That you lower caste wahabbi got played by the shitbilly? Them truths?
I knows this primarily from what I witnessed first hand in being in the tech industry of the U.S. since the 90s. It’s been a revolving door to dual track citizenship that has them living large in America and NONE OF THEM will give up for their souls or “sovereignty” back home. Same with the Chinese nationals. It went of course into overdrive after 9/11 with the DHS and H1-b visas that fast tracked the most talented among them to work at Google, Facebook, Twitter and in every other orifice of America’s Universities that are of course controlled by the intel community and DOD.
In the last 15 years rust belt communities in the Midwest were being sold to the PRC for future real estate on the cheap…
$elling Your soul for the worst form of fractional reserve banking!… It’$ been a huge success for 30 years in America… Until it “I$N’T”!….
Let’s face it. It worked! And Russia knows it… I’m afraid if it comes to an escalated exchange the homes in Manhattan, Connecticut and Great Falls are going to have to be targets for Russia’s “best technology”!
What? Why would Russia target the US with nukes and commit suicide? Do you as muzlim migrant want this to happen? Feeling Apocalyptic today are we?
In a word “YES”…
But don’t take my word for it https://www.zerohedge.com/geopolitical/us-should-remain-ukraine-until-putin-out-senator
You believe conspiracy sites? Are you educated?
All conspiracy? You don’t seem to be educated? Did you go to school?
Let me gue$$… You are a soon to be extinct Western Ukie?… Or a traumatized fried pill head U.$./NATO “regular” fantasizing again?!!!
Presents conspiracy sites as proof of 9/11 as an insider job?…….lol. Loser! All 9/11 myths have long been debunked. You are bitter because the US has fucked up your country and now you are bankrupt. So what’s new Muhammad Balu Singh? Have you considered reversion?
Matt Ahson is Indian Dalit who lives in fantasy world With a fool like you talk foolish thing not logical or with reasoning He is beyond repair
Matt Correction Fool like him
We da grand masters of religion. We da chosen ones. Bow down to us for salvation! We the Magi, the Mobeds and the Dasturs! You can’t compete with us. We are immortal.
You are troll actually
I expose you no? Which you hate no? Come on no?……lol
Ahson You are the only person in this universe who is educated and have sense of reasoning do not loose it revert back to Buddhism
Your bankruptcy is proof that you a failure. Everyone can see right thru you twinks. You don’t got an agenda. Just another muzlim failure.
India is nowhere near China, never will be. They have built an IT support industry for the West and that’s all they have. Ask any NRI if he wants to go back to India. The reality on the ground is very different, we will see how big Indian economy is when the big war breaks out in the Middle East and workers start to go back to India.
Zias Malhala I salute you for PRECISELY STATING THAT INDIA HAS BUILT IT AND FEW INDUSTRIES SUCH AS MEDICINE ETC TO SERVE THE WEST AND HEAVILY DEPENDENT ON EXPORT OF IT’S MANPOWER AND USA AND THE WEST ARE SMART THEY WILL SOON BE IN SUPREME POSITION OF FARMING OUT IT ,MEDICINE ETC TO NUMBER OF COUNTRIES SO THEY CANNOT BE BLACKMAILED BY INDIA IN FACT THEY WILL KEEP INDIA UNDER THEIR ABSOLUTE CONTROL LIKE THEY ARE DOING TO GERMANY AT THIS MINUTE
Dirty pajeets are doomed. Death blow will be the bramaputra mark my words. Will then just wait patiently :)
Johnny Cash SINCE MODI HAS COME TO POWER IT HAS BECOME DEEPLY POLARIZED COUNTRY AND DAY BY DAY I CAN SEE IT IS BEING SET UP BY USA/zionist To implode it from within and then they are able to manage it
You can be Zionist and not pro-US. Modi, Putin and Bolsonaro are pro-Zionists who are not pro-US.
Actually, you are funny. India is much more independent than Pakistan.
Chris Gr You are partially right on surface it appears so but in reality it not You could see clearly how It was absent at Lula’s inauguration And the way they are interacting with USA and Quad
Because they have some disputes with China.
Man your shit-hole corruptistan has collapsed. Here you talking rubbish like you do on that junkyard of press TV. Your country won’t be around for long. Balkanization is inevitable.
Why would a big war break out in the Middle east?….lol. You make no sense at all. Is it your wishful thinking?
