The US needs to sanction India. At minimum it should be sanctioned under CAATSA. Unfortunately India has too many de facto agents throughout the US 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 https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Defence_Research_and_Development_Organisation

“West won’t be able to halt India-Russia defense partnership — BrahMos chief “The trust which we have developed between the two partners, … that trust is good enough for us to work, and we are working forward – despite all these sanctions,” Atul Dinkar Rane said
“And if someone tries, he will only fail…The relationship between the Indian scientists and Russian technologists is so deep right now that it’s not going to be possible to break it. Even if someone tells us by law — no more talking with Russia, you will start talking to someone else — but we’ll always say it was easier to work with the Russians,” he added….
“The trust which we have developed between the two partners, … that trust is good enough for us to work, and we are working forward – despite all these sanctions. There are problems but these problems we have been able to manage by discussion and seeing how to work on them. We have no problems in the supply chains, we have no problems in discussing, there are no problems in traveling and talking to each other,” Rane said.” https://web.archive.org/web/20230209064941/https://tass.com/politics/1573225
“India-Russia joint venture hopes for $5 billion in supersonic missile exports by 2025 October 18, 2022 NEW DELHI (Reuters) – An India-Russia joint venture that makes nuclear capable supersonic cruise missiles…. The joint venture, with a 50.5% Indian and 49.5% Russian partnership, fits into Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s flagship make-in-India programme.
India has made Russian MiG fighter planes and Su-30 jets under licence and the two have collaborated to make BrahMos missiles in India. Russia has also traditionally been India’s main arms supplier…” https://finance.yahoo.com/news/india-russia-joint-venture-hopes-094952446.html
“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“ 08/29/2022 https://web.archive.org/web/20220831150746/https://ria.ru/20220829/bramos-1812793653.html
Why didn’t they name the joint venture, and missiles, KaliMos or KaliKremlin after the Hindu goddess of death and destruction?
Why did they name it BrahMos instead of KaliMos for Kali, the Hindu goddess of death and destruction, and Moscow? Why not KremlinKali? The Mos is for Moscow and the Brah is clearly for Hindu Brahmins, even though the claim is that it was named for rivers.
Why is India allowed to get by with murder – both metaphorically and literally? Why does India have no ethics? Discussing their wickedness is wearisome and falls on deaf ears.
Will the US sanction India? “U.S. to sanction military procurement network aiding Russia, Yellen says” By David Lawder, November 13, 2022 9:51 PM EST https://www.reuters.com/world/us-imposing-sanctions-military-procurement-network-russia-says-yellen-2022-11-14/

Discussing India’s wickedness is wearisome, especially since people continue to ignore it to their own peril and to the peril of the world.
Worse, some criticize those who speak the sad truth. This pre-dates Modi and it includes the many in the diaspora, who put their own interests and India’s interests ahead of their host country. India has the largest diaspora in the world.
Why won’t India do anything right or good? Why are Asian-Indians such self-serving, duplicitous, pro-Russian twits? This is true for both the (mostly upper caste) diaspora and sadly India itself. Why don’t they move to Russia, which has plenty of room? There’s some hope that if China got a different government that they might be a decent country. There’s apparently no hope that India will ever be a decent country. The problem must lie in India’s caste system, as well as the long-standing Soviet-Russian influence. India got its independence 75 years ago, so no excuses. Ireland was colonized for almost a thousand years and got its independence in the same period.
While it’s the first caucus there was an earlier US-Russia study group, which seems to be essentially the same thing:
