According to The Times of India, the total amount of the contract for five batteries will be 5,43 billion dollars. Earlier Washington announced sanctions against the People's Republic of China because of purchase of S-400 and SU-35. Why India after China ignores will of the USA? Photo: Stanislav India will buy Krasilnikov/TASS the Russian S-400. The The Times of India newspaper reports about it. At the same time earlier it was said that the USA threatened India with sanctions in case of purchase of these air defenses complexes. However recently the Minister of Defence of India Nirmala Sitkharaman has said that the American sanctions are "the law of the USA, but not the law of the UN". Why India after China has decided not to pay attention to them? Total amount of the contract for five batteries will be 5,43 billion dollars. Sources of the newspaper say what under the terms of the contract of 15% of this sum will be paid at his signing, and the rest — by delivery. The first two Triumph S-400 batteries will be transferred within two years, and completely the contract has to be executed in five years. It is expected that it will be signed during the meeting of the Russian president Vladimir Putin and the prime minister of India Narendra Modi next week. Despite threats of the USA, India doesn't want to refuse purchases of the Russian weapon for absolutely concrete reasons, the director of the project of new technologies and the international security "FEAST center" Vadim Kozyulin says: Vadim Kozyulin the director of the project of new technologies and the international security "FEAST center" "The United States of America is closer and closer to confrontation to China in the economic sphere and in the military sphere, and India can quite be on the side of Washington here. The White House will rely on it. The USA expands cooperation with India in all spheres, but, meanwhile, India traditionally bought weapon from Russia. Hundreds of soldiers of India were trained at us on service, on maintenance of operation of concrete types of arms. These are such relations which can't be taken, to tear down and change for friendship with the USA". It is impossible to call a position of the USA superrigid. Earlier official representative of the American administration who is quoted by The Times of India, has said: "As for other potential buyers of S-400, we haven't decided yet what with them to do. But you can be sure that we have spent huge amount of time for negotiations on alleged purchases of such installations as S-400 and fighters of Sukhoi with interlocutors worldwide who can be interested in such purchases". A week ago the USA declared imposition of sanctions against "Department of development of the equipment" of the People's Liberation Army of China and its director Li Shanfu for purchase of ten SU-35 fighters and several S-400 complexes. The Chinese Foreign Ministry has shown then strong indignation because of "unreasonable actions from the USA". Even if the States will decide on similar actions concerning India, they will be almost symbolical, the head of researches of Institute of dialogue of civilizations Alexey Malashenko is sure.
