        Excuse me: Russian money is working to pay for Russian goods ...
        I would understand if a completely impoverished country asked us for this weapon, and its geopolitical position we would have the edge as needed ...
        But in this case, Sri Lanka is far from a poor country ... Turnover in the economy is far from weak, and in South Asia it occupies the first place in GDP growth per capita - 5% per year ... And compare our rates .. .
        In general, for me personally - a strange, incomprehensible mechanism for selling through open credit lines to Ceylon ... Sri Lanka, I'm sorry ...

            And did you even understand when I indicated the growth of the Sri Lankan economy compared to our economy ??? And that they are not beggars, but are the first economy in South Asia ???
            But - the deal is strange: for Russian money - Russian weapons ...
            I understand that the Su-30K, having flown off its own in India, only gathers dust in the hangars and money is spent on their storage ... However, it is impossible to "conquer" the arms market in a brainless way ... It would be possible to work with price .. Claw would be stuck in spare parts and service ...

      Everything is as if good, but purchases on account of the loan are alarming.

      There are fewer customers who are willing to pay here and now. And the struggle for markets does not stop even for a minute. So this is one way of not really lowering the price to go meet the client.
      Take a look at how the struggle for customers in the construction and automotive business is going on in Russia. Mortgage loans are almost without interest, deferrals, discounts, etc. So what to do? If you don’t kiss the client in the ass, then tonight your competitor will do it, and twice - at the entrance and exit from the office.

          Let's highlight a few points.
          1) Aircraft have already been around for a long time. They stupidly rot at the airport and become obsolete mentally and physically. Giving them on credit, we do not lose anything?
          2) As if the loan issued in fact remains with us. From this moment, Sri Lanka has before us the highest priority debt repayment. Interest is dripping. It's good?
          3) Such a large loan for Sri Lanka obliges our countries to closer cooperation in various fields. It has already happened many times when small states, not being able to pay off, offered us a share in joint projects on their territory. This is about political and economic isolation. If anything, we will drink good tea.
          4) The arms market is a specific thing. As a rule, small countries that buy weapons from large countries take results and are politically oriented towards them. I would even say this: the choice of weapons is not so much a technical choice as a political one. Arabs, for example, are well aware that they often buy full crap from the Americans, which is not only expensive, but also burns from the first hit of ATGM 50 years ago. But the choice, in this case, is purely political. They buy the loyalty of a big bandit.

      And there is. These aircraft were at one time in service with India, and then transferred back in exchange for the Su-30MKI as stipulated by the agreement. I do not want to delve into the prehistory, but due to legal reasons, these planes ended up in Belarus, and not in Russia. Although Russia retained the right to property.
      Anyway - the letter K at the end means "commercial", i.e. It was originally intended for sale abroad.
      In the late 70s and early 80s I worked at 558 ARZs. Then engaged in the repair of the Su-17 and Su-22 of all modifications. And now at the factory they grab onto all the aircraft. The Air Force in Belarus is not enough for the capabilities of such a plant.

    Everything would be fine, but it's probably time to drive such loans through the stock exchange. Like the Ukrainian one in Holland. The stock exchange is owned by the British, and they will be torn off the skin of a dead donkey in debt obligations!
