Russia’s war on Ukraine may be stalling, but that didn’t stop Vladimir Putin from staging a massive military drill with some help from his friends.

The week long exercise at seven locations on land and sea involved 50,000 troops – Russians side by side with forces from China, India, and countries still further afield.

The two Asian giants also get favorable mention in Putin’s new “Russian World” foreign policy doctrine.

    In long run for entire world China is threat not Russia.

  16. Its only jealousy of India anchor showcasing.
    The image of Modi, Putin and Xi was captured in 2015 is irrelevant in 2022 geo politics.
    Europe can not afford and survive without Russian energy.

  17. Nobody really knows what's happening in its own country and you think that you know what other countries are doing. Puppet world. The big players are pulling the strings.

  24. So russia writing itself in as a protector is a play by play imitation of American Geopolitical rhetoric, no? When has the world order not been might equals right? The victors wright history for christ sakes.

  25. they don't care what you all think. they are too powerful it seems.

  26. The middle guy is squeezing both of their hands equally equally. That should be a clear sign that they are an alliance. They're behaving like an alliance. But then again what do I know right I only predicted this war.

RUSSIAN PEOPLE FRIENDLY BROTHERS STOOD BY INDIA HARD TIME 50 YEARS AGO. IN WAR

  28. If we truly believe in democracy than the world needs 'Check and Balance'. An Unipolar world would just invite corruption. Because in a Unipolar world, the USA hold absolute power and we know absolute power corrupts absolutely.

  29. opening line: "rusias war in ukraine may be stalin'" XDXD

  30. Excellent panel, excellent analysis and excellent moderator. I cannot tell you how thankful I am for this. As an analyst in the field, I love to see it and it will make my job of informing infinitely easier when the press avoids sensationalism and really gets to the core of the issues at hand and the true nature of the problems we face as a global community.
    Side note: Mongolia is not a suporter of Russian policy. They just dont want to be swallowed by Russia or China.
    And great point about the extreme right and the extreme left joining forces pretending to be against energy price rises but really being pro-Russia and anti-democracy. Thats exactly what the gilets jaunes were. It had nothing to do with energy after a week. It was just frenzy of thugs and those who wanted Melenchon and Le Pen to win and were outraged that Macron one. Extremists pretend to be for addressing daily grievances, but thats absolute nonsense. They promise everything and deliver only misery.
    Really well-informed guests which is not always a given in this war where so many people just want to be seen on TV.

  31. I think India role in the exercise is to spying against China's military capability. 😁😅😆😂

  32. Russia and India are the eternal enemies of China.China never wholeheartedly helps Russia to counter the West sanctions.
    This is desperated Putin show off.

  33. Why are these talking heads suddenly going out of their way to pronounce his name “Poo-teeeeen”

  34. Russia is in a bad place and China knows it.

  35. It’s sad, to hear that India is siding with Russia and China.

  36. Nothing is weaker than the divided States of America at this point in their history. Russia is in a much better position.On the question of alliances with Russia, China is now a hardline ally with Russia. Cuba and Venezuela will always support Russia. You people are liars

  37. India can't make up their mind if they want China to screw them or if they want to screw themselves.

  38. China and India are the enablers for Russia to wage it's war against Ukraine, they have blood on their hands too, don't buy products or services from these countries.

  39. Listening to the 'so called indigenous footballer!!…too miserable as are all like him…to acknowledge his non-aboriginal parentage. Racism does not exist..tribalism does and did amongst the numerous 'aboriginal tribes anyway I'm sick of their whining.totally unbalanced when they take all the "Whitey" advantages, cost us who work billions of dollar each year and then howl and whine. Better off under China?…Japan?…France?…I don't think so.
