Franklin D Roosevelt had said: “In politics, nothing happens by accident. If it happens, you can bet it was planned that way.” An analysis of classic Sino-Russia relationship would prove the point.

There is talk now about the “China-Russia” Military Pact. Given the status of current Indo-China relations and Russia’s dilemma about its bilateral relations with India and China, the probable “Sino-Russia Military Pact” should be a matter of concern for India, considering its unavoidable impact.

The issues related to Indo-Sino-Russian relations, in their own sphere, are quite complex. Keeping that complexity in mind, the impact of India’s multi-dimensional relationship with other countries—especially the USA and the formation of QUAD (India-Australia-Japan-USA) would also be an important factor for consideration. Thus, a broad level analysis of all the aspects mentioned above would be essential to arrive at a conclusion, having the semblance of reality.

The monograph analyse Sino-Russia Military Strategies, their common thread, India’s multipronged relationships with other countries, Implications of Sino-Russia Pact on India and evaluate measures India could take to safeguard its own national interests.
