President Barack Obama has come and gone To ensure that a deepening US-India friendship is not viewed as too ominous by China India’s external affairs minister went to Beijing soon after Obama left and Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s China visit in May has already been announced Which other nations might require attention next Let me suggest that Russia calls for creative thinking The key question is: can India be simultaneously close to Washington a new friend and Moscow an old friend and still a source of arms and potentially a lot of energy a great Indian necessity How exactly India should approach Moscow requires an understanding of what is happening in Russia of late where it might be headed next and how the West would react Two weeks back I returned from a visit to Moscow I was there for the Gaidar Forum an annual event that brings together political leaders bureaucrats academics journalists and businessmen and provides a good sense of the political and economic pulse of the country This year’s theme was “Russia and the world” Russian Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev spoke on Russia’s economic troubles Several other ministers represented their portfolios For three intense days a whole variety of topics was discussed Share This Article Related Article An economic crisis is rapidly unfolding in Russia Western sanctions against the country — for its annexation of Crimea and role in Ukraine — are beginning to hurt more so than anyone had anticipated The sanctions were aimed at denying some Russian companies and banks access to international capital markets They were designed to hurt the elite especially if not only those allied with Russian President Vladimir Putin But a dramatic fall in oil prices has deepened the crisis The economic pain now is beginning to engulf the masses The 2015 budget was based on the assumption that oil prices would be $100 a barrel But oil prices have halved with little prospect of climbing back substantially The sanctions and lower oil prices have by now trapped the currency which has lost roughly half its value Capital flight has begun The economy was already decelerating The international financial institutions now predict an economic contraction as distinct from a deceleration With the likelihood of the currency plunging further some commentators ponder whether one should leave the country “But where to go” asks Ivan Sukhov one such commentator writing in The Moscow Times “The closest and simplest destination is Europe but … the euro costs more than most Russians can afford” Accepting that Russia will have to learn to live with lower oil prices Medvedev argued that macroeconomic stability was not the main problem Russia’s deeper malaise was structural which in turn had two aspects: over reliance on natural commodities like oil and gas and lack of economic productivity and competitiveness With the exception of oil’s special role in Russia’s economy Medvedev’s argument is not different from how Manmohan Singh as finance minister had analysed India’s crisis in 1991 He also drew a distinction between the structural and macroeconomic issues and suggested that more than getting macroeconomic adjustments such as the budgetary and current account balances right India had to pursue structural market-oriented reforms which would make firms and the economy more competitive India recovered from its 1991 crisis entering a long period of growth Can Russia do the same A purely economic analysis can’t answer this question Arguments about politics and national security will have to be carefully considered The Ukraine crisis is especially critical Many years ago Samuel Huntington had called Ukraine a classic “cleft state” Such states are torn between two divergent cultural foundations By Huntington’s logic the Ukrainian civil war is basically a violent contestation over whether it belongs to the West or to Russia In such civil wars outside powers inevitably get drawn in and the internal morphs into the external In The New York Review of Books George Soros recently argued that if the West provided substantially greater help to the Ukrainian government Putin would see the writing on the wall and compromise The optimism of Soros had few takers at the Gaidar Forum In the final panel experts were asked to predict how the civil war would evolve With no exceptions all predicted an escalation Timothy Colton a leading scholar of Russian politics and a participant in the final panel even believes that “escalation runs the risk of the pro-Russian forces and indirectly Russia itself suffering a defeat” Russia already supports Eastern Ukrainian rebels Greater Russian involvement whatever its precise manifestations would only lead to more comprehensive Western sanctions No one was talking openly of a new Cold War but pessimism about the future was all too evident Soros is betting on Putin’s rationality in view of the deepening economic and political malaise; these experts were predicting the opposite A week after the Gaidar Forum some evidence for their claim emerged in Davos where Russian Deputy Prime Minister Igor Shuvalov said that Russia “would eat less food use less electricity” but would unite behind Putin in a time of crisis This is a classic nationalist stance Nationalists hate economic compromise always placing national pride on a higher pedestal Economics is too annoyingly prosaic for them What then are the likely next moves of Putin This is a classic question of international politics: do leaders compromise externally to deal with internal crises or do they seek internal mass legitimacy in such situations by engaging in war In China as the Great Leap Forward began to falter in the early 1960s Mao Zedong turned to a Sino-Indian war to avoid a further domestic plunge Roderick MacFarquhar a foremost authority on Chinese elite politics has long made this argument Putin is immensely popular but the Gaidar panelists argued that his popularity could not possibly rise any higher It would in other words only go down which can make the Mao option more attractive than the Soros option Some are also beginning to speak of a larger social crisis emerging out of the worsening economic crisis A conjoining of economic and social crises has been all too common in history Sukhov again: “The boundaries of what is acceptable have been erased Everyone is prepared to fight everybody else One will fight because he is Russian the other because he is not Russian a third because he doesn’t like the way someone parked his car and a fourth because he doesn’t like the way somebody looks” With a GDP of over $2 trillion Russia is an important actor in the world economy Its army is among the strongest in the world It still has a huge nuclear arsenal If a new Cold War-like situation does emerge the world will be an infinitely worse place One can only hope that the Ukraine crisis does not escalate further If it does said Obama in Delhi the economic costs for Russia will go up further and sanctions will be more comprehensive For India this scenario can present serious foreign policy difficulties It may then not be easy to expand energy and arms trade links with Russia as is currently planned India will need extraordinary diplomatic skills and a lot of luck The writer is Sol Goldman Professor of International

the latest Opinion News download Indian Express App More Related NewsBengaluru: The third and final successful ground test of the indigenous cryogenic engine by the Indian Space Research Organization (ISRO) last Friday has raised hopes of launching the country’s first heavy-lift version of the geostationary satellite launch vehicle (GSLV) in December The GSLV-Mark-III can carry a payload of four tons about twice the capacity of ISRO’s existing rockets The C-20 engine that was "hot tested" for 635 seconds at the Liquid Propulsion Complex at Mahendragiri in Tamil Nadu will be used to power the rocket’s upper stage But S Nambinarayanan former Project director of ISRO’s Liquid Propulsion Systems says this milestone could have been crossed 12 years ago had his project not been derailed by an “international conspiracy” to halt India’s leap into space File photo of the Mangalyaan launch by ISRO on 5 November 2013 PTI It was Nambinarayanan who introduced the liquid fuel rocket technology in India in the 1980s The Vikas engine used today by all ISRO launch vehicles including the one that took Chandrayaan-1 to the moon in 2008 and Mangalyaan was the result of two decades of work by his team with assistance from France And as project director of the newly-launched indigenous cryogenic engine project he plunged headlong into developing the propulsion systems for ISRO’s GSLV and interplanetary missions With this in mind in 1991 he signed a contract on behalf of ISRO with the Russian space agency Glavkosmos for the technology transfer of a cryogenic propulsion system But things did not turn out as planned Glavkosmos in 1993 reneged under pressure from the United States And Nambinarayanan was arrested on November 1994 on charges of selling India’s "rocket secrets to Pakistan through two Maldivian women "spies" leading to his suspension from his job With Nambinarayanan out of the scene the cryogenic engine development suffered "Cancellation of the contract and my arrest were part of an agenda of the US accomplished by conniving with officials of our Intelligence Bureau (IB) and the Kerala Police" Nambinarayanan told this correspondent in an email As an evidence of conspiracy he refers to the dismissal of an IB officer of the rank of joint director in 1996 for his alleged links with the CIA In fact in 1996 the Central Bureau of Investigations (CBI) which took up the "ISRO spy case" found it to be false and fabricated by the IB and the Kerala Police — a finding endorsed by the Supreme Court in April 1998 and by the National Human Rights Commission (NHRC) in September 1999 The NHRC also passed strictures against the Kerala government for having "tarnished (Nambinarayanan’s) long and distinguished career in space research apart from the physical and mental torture to which he and his family were subjected" Nambinarayanan says he managed to obtain the supplies and documents relating to the cryogenic engine from Russia’s Glavkosmos before it cancelled the contract and arranged a private airline (Ural Aviation) to transport the cargo to India in four shipments "With this I hoped ISRO could master the cryogenic technology" he said But his suspension from ISRO’s cryogenics systems project put an end to that "Had there been no conspiracy ISRO would have achieved space power status long back maybe as early as 2000" Nambinarayanan told IANS "Today we are not only delayed by more than 12 years but have also lost several billion dollars worth of launch business" The rocket scientist feels sad that while the CBI concluded that the ISRO "spy case" was false and fabricated nobody bothered to unearth the motives behind it or punish those officers of the IB and the Kerala Police who were charged with negligence and dereliction of duty by CBI "The government should constitute a special investigation team to find out the total truth in the ISRO spy case" he said While ISRO is celebrating last week’s successful "hot test" of its new cryogenic engine Nambinarayanan 75 who started this work two decades ago is now spending much of his time fighting court cases — to get Rs1 crore (Over $145000) in damages he had claimed from the state and central governments He is also seeking action against police officers who framed him and others in a false case that harmed India’s space programme (KS Jayaraman can be contacted at [email
