India and Russia in a Changing World

Rajen Harshe SINCE the end of the cold war and the disintegration of the Soviet Union in 1991, international relations have constantly been in a state of flux. Naturally, the relatively unfamiliar trajectories of the post-cold war international system are difficult to understand with the help of existing schools of thought in international relations studies, Keeping this uncomfortable reality as the backdrop, this article would make a modest effort to recast the changing dimensions of Indo-Russian ties in the context of international relations after the cold war. The sequence of this exercise is as follows. First, it could highlight a few significant changes that have been affecting international relations. Second, it would briefly underline the impact of such changes on India and Russia. Finally, it would analyse Indo- Russian ties in politico-strategic, economic and military spheres to appraise their changing nuances. In view of this sequence, it would be appropriate to discuss the major changes in international relations by underlining the role of capitalism in the post' cold war world.
