The July issue of Geopolitics has an insight in US President Donald Trump's new weapon: Countering America's Adversaries Through Sanctions Act (CAATSA). The United States wants to scuttle India's burgeoning defence ties with Russia via CAATSA. India does have a number of options to avoid its punitive sections and use the opportunity to fast-track indigenisation and become immune to such blackmail. Despite being India's dominant arms supplier for decades, Russia finds its influence in military procurements is waning. But that does not mean that the time-tested military relationship between the two countries is under serious threats. Also, a close look at the key India-Russia defence deals. A checklist of big-ticket defence programmes details how critical Russian weapons systems are to maintain India's military primacy in the region. The issue also finds out how our political and military leadership must employ innovative ways to meet and combat the newly evolving patterns involving non-state actors and asymmetric warfare.
