Miller Comments on India’s Continued Purchase of Russian Oil

In an interview with CNBCManjari Chatterjee Miller, currently a Senior Fellow at the Council on Foreign Relations (CFR) and on leave from Boston University’s Frederick S. Pardee School of Global Studies where she is an Associate Professor of International Relations, discusses India’s decision to continue importing Russian oil.

The article, titled “India isn’t likely to stop buying Russian oil any time soon. Here’s why,” explores the decision by Prime Minister Narendra Modi to continue importing Russian oil amid its invasion of Ukraine, the international response to this decision, and the implications for geopolitics. Miller notes that, for the United States, options to punish India are limited as the U.S. has a vested interest in Indo-Pacific strategy and intentions to counter China in the region. She argues that “Penalizing India would be a very serious setback to the bilateral partnership and even the Quad.”
