Russia has offered to assist India with its space program, including the training of cosmonauts.
In return, India has agreed to buy up to 80 military helicopters from Russia.
Mr Medvedev also offered Russia's support in the fight against terrorism, in response to the Mumbai attacks.

I see nothing bad in this, Russia makes a profitable deal with India. If this were a deal between the USA and India would it even make the news?

Any concerns about an axis of 'East - West' or 'Russia and America' and Americans believing the rest of the world should pick a side defined through America's lens should be shelved.
It's only really America that is desperate to perpetuate this paradigm now, and probably in the past too.
Post-WWII, America exploited the fact that it was on a roll and pressured (economically, politically and militarily) the rest of the world into seeing world divisions as America saw them.
As America's grip on the world slowly loosens, more and more countries will now 'pick and choose' allegiances based on how it affects them directly rather than how it may play out in America's various foreign policies.
