    Will the Indian Ballot Solve the Country’s Economic Problems?
    Petr Topychkanov April 18, 2014

    India The Abstainer
    Petr Topychkanov April 8, 2014

    The challenges New Delhi faces inside the country and along its borders do not allow it to fully support the Russian annexation of Crimea, since this would create a precedent that can be used against India’s own territorial integrity. However, India could not denounce Russia either, because it acted similarly four decades ago.
