India had little reason to support the break-up of Ukraine and legitimise Crimea’s integration with Russia through a referendum. Yet the UPA government was reluctant to criticise Moscow’s actions in Crimea given the value India attaches to the time-tested strategic partnership with Russia If the West was disappointed with India’s muted reaction Putin’s public expression of gratitude for Indian support accentuated Delhi’s diplomatic discomfort Although New Delhi is right in acknowledging Russia’s legitimate interests in Crimea cannot afford to condone the actions of Ukraine’s rebels in the east who are fighting Kiev with Russian support After all state support to separatism is one of India’s biggest gripes on the regional and international stage India’s problem however goes well beyond the question of selective opposition to cross-border terrorism and the use of militant groups to affect territorial changes in another country For India the diplomatic challenge is not about taking consistent positions on international issues but of recognising the long-term geopolitical implications of the Ukrainian crisis and acting upon them Renewed rivalry between Russia and the West will make it harder for Asia to construct a stable balance of power Through the Cold War which saw the US and China embrace each other India relied on Russian support to ensure its security If Moscow however tilts towards a rising China in order to counter the West India’s strategic dilemmas will become rather acute India then has a big stake in preventing the further deterioration of US-Russian relations If India’s silence on Ukraine until now has been misunderstood it must now speak up Delhi must press Russia and the West to seek a comprehensive political accommodation in Central Europe And then some Delhi must also start preparing for the possibility that Russia and America might find that reconciliation elusive The

More Top NewsWritten by Syed Badrul Ahsan | Updated: May 4 2016 12:55 am Bangladeshi PM Sheikh Hasina Related News Bangladesh is in a straitjacket and its government is embattled With no sign of a let-up in the killings of liberals and secular writers the feeling grows that the administration led by Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina is not on top of the situation The recent murders of two young men one a gay rights activist and cousin of former Foreign Minister Dipu Moni and the other his friend occurred only days after a respected academic Professor Rezaul Karim Siddiquee of Rajshahi University was killed by men suspected to be linked to Islamist groups The irony is not to be missed The authorities have failed on all counts to prevent such crimes Once the crimes are committed they are manifestly unable to nab the culprits And yet the police and Home Minister Asaduzzaman Khan Kamal have persisted in asserting that investigations essentially those which began with the murder of Avijit Roy in February last year have been proceeding apace Such statements fly in the face of the Dhaka metropolitan police commissioner’s admission that many of the killers have left the country He didn’t explain how Share This Article Related Article The government has been in a state of inexplicable denial Contrary to the general view that Islamists are behind the killings with a clear pattern discernible it has vociferously denied that the IS or al-Qaeda is operating in Bangladesh That despite statements from the IS and al-Qaeda about the involvement of their men in the killings Not one murder has been solved But that hasn’t prevented Hasina from stating her own views Law and order she stated emphatically in parliament was normal The pronouncement was soon undermined by US Secretary of State John Kerry’s telephone call Kerry whose concerns centred around the murder of Xulhaz Mannan the gay rights activist once employed at the US embassy asked the PM to ensure justice was done and the men responsible brought to trial For her part US Ambassador Marcia Bernicat met Home Minister Kamal Subsequently she let it be known the Bangladesh government by itself was not in a position to combat the rising spate of murders That statement was taken to mean an American desire to come into the picture and assist Bangladesh Obviously Dhaka will not readily accept it The EU and the European Parliament too have been piling on the pressure The government’s difficulty is that it presides over a police force and security agencies whose competence is increasingly perceived to be absent Law enforcers have patently failed to demonstrate their ability to plumb the depths in investigations that go beyond murders committed by Islamist groups Those responsible for sexually harassing young women at last year’s Bengali New Year celebrations at Dhaka University are yet to be apprehended The rise in crime cannot be seen separately from the overall state of politics The recent trials and executions of 1971 war criminals appear to have emboldened extremist groups To its credit though the government hasn’t faltered in its determination to bring the ageing collaborators to justice despite the largescale propaganda against the trials in the West However it’s on its handling of domestic issues that the government has rendered itself vulnerable The recent heist of more than $100 million of Bangladesh’s forex reserves from the US Federal Reserve and its transfer to the Philippines has justifiably rung alarm bells But it has led to no serious debate in parliament The largest opposition the Bangladesh Nationalist Party has no parliamentary representation The Jatiyo Party of former military ruler HM Ershad sits on the opposition benches even as some of its senior figures serve as ministers in Hasina’s cabinet Ershad has been a great survivor He’s today a special envoy of the PM Politics is not a pretty picture in Bangladesh today Compounding it has been the government’s seeming reluctance to go full throttle towards restoring political secularism as enshrined in the 1972 constitution A few weeks ago the high court struck down a petition to lift the provision of Islam as state religion Once again irony is at work The factor of state religion was superimposed by Ershad’s military regime in the early 1980s A putatively secular Awami League hasn’t proved bold enough to strike it down Bangladesh’s crisis is existential The government may not be in its best form But the alternatives are worse as political history following the assassinations of

tension between Russia and the West are likely to pose a major challenge for India’s foreign policy As Russia embraces China to relieve the pressures from the West India’s room for geopolitical manoeuvre in Asia and beyond is bound to shrink For nearly half a century New Delhi’s strategic partnership with Moscow has survived many twists and turns including the collapse of the Soviet Union Much like China’s ties with Pakistan India’s relations with Russia seemed to constitute an all-weather partnership One big factor cementing Delhi’s ties with Moscow over the decades was their common apprehension about China which shares long borders with both India and Russia India and Russia have both fought limited border wars with China Although India and Russia began to normalise bilateral relations with China in the 1980s they remained wary about Beijing and its strategic intentions The rapid rise of Chinese power relative to Russia and India over the last two decades suggested Moscow and Delhi needed each other even more today in securing a stable Asian balance of power The significant expansion of Russia’s economic security and political ties with China however begin to pose a problem for India For the Sino-Russian partnership is becoming a lot thicker than that between India and Russia Even in the defence domain where Russia once privileged relations with India China is rapidly becoming an important partner for Moscow It is no surprise then that Delhi looks the odd man in the much-celebrated eastern strategic triangle involving Russia China and India Unnatural Allies When he met visiting Chinese Premier Li Keqiang in Moscow this week Russian President Vladimir Putin declared that Russia and China were “natural partners natural allies and neighbours” Realists might quibble with the formulation by saying that large neighbours find it very difficult to be allies Those familiar with the history of Sino-Russian relations would agree They recall the fact that Russia’s Joseph Stalin and China’s Mao Zedong announced a military alliance in 1950 Despite the shared ideology of communism and hostility towards the West Russia and China fell apart by the late 1950s The Sino-Soviet rift coincided with the conflict between India and China and helped define Delhi’s strategic partnership with Moscow If the logic of realpolitik should limit the depth of Sino-Russian partnership at the current moment America and Europe appear determined to push Moscow into the arms of Beijing In Moscow there is deep resentment that America failed to offer Russia an honourable peace at the end of the Cold War When Putin took charge of Russia in 2000 he sought strong ties with China as part of an effort to construct a multipolar world and improve Moscow’s leverage with the US What began as Moscow’s manoeuvre for position a decade and a half ago now looks to be a strategic choice to align with Beijing amidst Western attempts to isolate and punish Russia over Ukraine Modi’s Options It does not matter who or what is responsible for post-Soviet Russia’s alienation from the West and alignment with China What matters for India are the multiple negative implications of this power shift The conflict between Russia and America in the Cold War severely limited India’s foreign policy choices Normal relations between Moscow and Washington allowed India to pursue good relations with both over the last quarter of a century If Russia and America fail to reset their relations quickly India will be compelled by both sides to make difficult political choices Until now India has avoided making those choices On Ukraine for example Delhi neither criticised nor endorsed Russia’s annexation of Crimea and its legitimation of it through a referendum As Russia and China draw closer they are bound to put more pressure on India to back their positions at multilateral forums like the BRICS and the United Nations on a range of global issues Delhi also knows that Beijing is now the senior partner to Moscow and that the alliance with Russia will end up improving China’s bargaining power with the US Delhi can neither turn hostile towards Moscow by aligning with Washington nor become a junior partner to the unfolding Sino-Russian alliance India must pursue good relations with Russia Europe and America with each on its own merit Keeping these in separate compartments and having a clear sense of India’s own interests will be the new challenges in Delhi’s engagement with great powers The writer is a distinguished fellow at the Observer Research
