New Delhi and Moscow have agreed to launch a sea route that will extend from Vladivostok, a major port city in Eastern Russia, to Chennai, on the Bay of Bengal in eastern India. The agreement, made under a “memorandum of understanding” signed by both countries, could present a challenge to China as the maritime route will include parts of the South China Sea where Beijing continues to flex its muscle and ignore international rulings that deny its claims over a large part of the sea.
It will be interesting to see if the new Indian-Russian alliance will affect the balance of power in the region. Abhijit Singh, head of the Maritime Policy Initiative think tank at the Observer Research Foundation in New Delhi, said, “…beyond emphasizing the need for compliance with international laws and the peaceful resolution of disputes, Indian officials aren’t willing to go much further.” The question is: How far is Russia willing to go?

Yeah, with Russia and India combined on this issue, it is going to be interesting to see how China reacts, and if Russia and/or India are willing to enforce it.

China and Russia are holding hands for a common goal . Once this is achieved they know they have each other to deal with. Now that's the future chess board slower but in progress with different opponents. Hmmm🤔
