Can you imagine the size of Indo Chinese trade? $60 billion. India imports abnormally from China, even those goods which India can manufacture indigenously. China has occupied about 36,000 square miles of Indian territory in Arunachal Pradesh and Ladakh. Indians should have shame to trade with an enemy country and strengthen them by buying their goods.
Russia (erstwhile Soviet Union) was always helpful to India. It not only bought Indian goodss, but also persuaded the erstwhile East European Communist countries like Bulgaria, Czechoclavakia, East Germany, Rumania, etc. to buy Indian goods extensively. Russia and its associates supplied goods to India accepting payment in Indian Rupees, when every other European country and USA demanded payment in hard currencies. Russia provided technologies to India when every other country held their technologies to their chest.
Why Indian traders and industrialists have a craze to buy Chinese goods and not Russian goods? Some of the Russian goods may be of poor quality. India should try to identify qualitative Russian goods for purchase from them.
Russia was always a true friend of India, except on one occasion i.e. when China invaded India in 1962. Russia endorses India's admission to the permanent membership of Security Council, with Veto rights. Besides, Russia sells nuclear fuel to India without strings.

"... The detention of human rights activists and the use of force to stop peaceful rallies in Russia is troublesome..." - U.S. President George Bush said on Nov. 25, 2007.
Troublesome to whom? These things happen in US also. Then troublesome to who else?
*Are there no human right violations in US? How about Guantanamo?
Human right violations take place in every country. We can find no exceptions.

Russia removed the Soviet-era monuments in its own country. It sold the bronze idols of Lenin and Stalin as scrap. One Indian metallurgic industry which makes brass taps fixed in homes imported them from Russia and melted them.
Now will the Indian melters import bronze from Poland?
