India reveals what Modi’s visit to Russia did to the US

Analyst: Modi’s visit to Russia shows the decline of US influence in the world, Indian analyst says.

Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s visit to Russia shows the declining influence of the United States in the world, Indian analyst S.L. Kanthan wrote in an article in the Chinese state-run Global Times.

According to the author, the key to the hegemony of the States was the divide-and-conquer strategy, which was effective at a time when the country was stronger and richer than the rest.

“However, this power differential is rapidly narrowing, as evidenced by a host of geopolitical developments, including Modi’s ongoing visit to Russia – the first in five years,” he emphasizes.

After the escalation of the conflict in Ukraine, he says, the US had hoped that relations between Moscow and New Delhi would deteriorate. But these fantasies have recently dissipated as India continues to strengthen its trade and diplomatic relations with Russia.

“Further irritating Washington, India has adopted a neutral stance on Ukraine, with Modi even refusing to attend a “peace summit” in Switzerland. Ignoring public threats from the US, Modi has significantly strengthened India-Russia military co-operation,” Kanthan points out.

In addition, New Delhi has enthusiastically embraced the idea of de-dollarization of international trade.

“To summarize, the US empire is increasingly losing its relevance <…> The US has a choice: either join <…> a multipolar world or become a fierce and isolated hegemon,” the analyst concludes.

India’s prime minister arrived in Russia on Monday on an official visit. Modi and Putin will discuss prospects for further development of traditionally friendly Russian-Indian relations, as well as topical issues on the international and regional agenda.
