In an opinion piece for the Lowy Institute, Teesta Prakash explains that India has not denounced Russia’s invasion of Ukraine because India is still concerned about China and Russia supplies India with a lot of military equipment.

Summary

KEY POINTS:
  1. India's UN abstentions on the Russia-Ukraine matter have been noted by Quad partners. 
  2. Quad members haven't publicly criticised New Delhi but understand its ties with Moscow. 
  3. India plays a key role in offsetting China in the Indo-Pacific. 
  4. With 86% of India's military gear from Russia, its importance to New Delhi is evident. 
  5. The Russia-China joint statement may have intensified India's dilemma.
