The Government of India and the Government of Russia are Joint Venture Partners in the production of BrahMos missiles, which may be used in Ukraine. UK PM Rishi Sunak’s wife remains a citizen of India, which is clearly an enemy state.

If Russian troops in Belarus used missiles to attack Poland, will anyone admit it?
Russia has deployed Iskander and S-400 missile systems in Belarus, and it is moving S-300 systems to the Donetsk region to strike not only the infrastructure of front-line cities, but also the positions of Ukrainian troops”. https://www.ukrinform.net/rubric-ato/3619092-russia-deploys-iskander-s400-systems-in-belarus.html

Through the still unsanctioned Russian government owned Rosatom, Russia is the biggest nuclear pusher-exporter in the world. So why do so many “anti-nuclear” activists believe that Putin can do no wrong and the “west” can do no right? Brainwashing or bribery? https://www.rferl.org/a/russia-nuclear-power-industry-graphics/32014247.html

Ukraine shouldn’t trust Rishi Sunak, whose wife remains a citizen of Russia’s ally India. No one should trust Rishi Sunak. Sunak hid a US residency card, even while serving in the UK government.

Both of the entities making the BrahMos missiles are government owned meaning that Russia and India are business partners for making missiles, which may be in use in Ukraine, or may be in use soon: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/NPO_Mashinostroyeniya

“Brahmos” is ready to supply missiles to the Russian army: Co-director of “Brahmos” Maksichev: the company is ready to supply missiles to the Russian army 08:32 08/29/2022 (updated: 11:15 08/29/2022) https://web.archive.org/web/20220831150746/https://ria.ru/20220829/bramos-1812793653.html

A reminder that the United States and the Russian mainland are around 57 miles apart. US and Russian islands in the Bering Strait are around 2.5 miles apart.

The Azovstal iron and steel works, or Metallurgical Combine Azovstal (Ukrainian: Mеталургійний Kомбінат Азовсталь, pronounced [ɐˌzɔu̯ˈstɑlʲ]; PFTS: AZST), was a metallurgical facility located in Mariupol in eastern Ukraine, and one of the largest steel rolling companies in the country. The Azovstal plant became one of the most emblematic points of the Siege of Mariupol during the 2022 Russian invasion of Ukraine. The plant had tunnels and bunkers capable of withstanding a nuclear attack,[2] making it an extremely defensible position. As the Russian forces advanced into Mariupol, Ukrainian forces withdrew to Azovstal,[3] and by late April it became the last pocket of Ukrainian resistance….
In 1991, after the independence of Ukraine, the plant became a property of the Ukrainian state. In 1996, the state started its privatization.[12] The plant became owned by Metinvest, a metallurgical company solely owned by the Ukrainian business conglomerate Systems Capital Management.[13]…” https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Azovstal_iron_and_steel_works
On 22 February, when hundreds of people took to the streets of Mariupol protesting against Russia’s aggressive acts, SCM shareholder Rinat Akhmetov announced that the Company was going to pay $34 million in taxes upfront to bolster Ukraine’s treasury. “Our common goal is a strong, peaceful, independent, united Ukraine within its internationally recognised borders… Everyone must do everything in their power to strengthen the country… Unity is a matter of country’s survival now,” he said
