Re: India-Russia: News & Analysis

SCO, ASEAN, BRICS... so many conflicts of interest for Russia (and for us). How long can this balancing act continue? In this case we have ASEAN, which is basically an anti-Chinese coalition, and of course China is Russia's ally. Russia (and China) must at some point must pick a side.
