        Another shaking of the radio - he is not capable of more.
        There is no economy and science in his country.
        Self-isolation she is.
        I understand that he (with his predecessors) with China and Russia would be friends in the gums.
        So after all, they are not friends at all.

    The first paragraph contains the passage "on the improvement of the operating frigates." That is, new wine in old furs, so to speak. Of course, for the construction of a new ship, $ 14 million is like a ribbon on a peakless cap in full dress.

    The contract value was $ 13,8 million.

    On a scale of 1:72, will they build 6 ships at this price, or is it money to develop a modernization program? Unclear.
