The governments of Russia and the Philippines today signed an agreement on military-technical cooperation between the countries. The document was signed by Russian Defense Minister General of the Army Sergei Shoigu and the head of the military department of the Philippines Dolphin Lorenzana.


Also, Moscow and Manila signed the first contract for the military-technical line - for the supply of RPG-7В grenade launchers and shots for them.
The document was endorsed by Rosoboronexport general director Alexander Mikheev and the Philippine Minister of Defense Delfin Lorenzana in the presence of Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu in Clark, where the ASEAN defense ministers' meeting is taking place. The details of the agreement were not disclosed, according to the Department of Information and Mass Communications of the Ministry of Defense of the Russian Federation

Russia and the Philippines have signed the first contract for the supply of weapons


To date, the Philippines, along with Brunei, remained the only states in the Asia-Pacific region that never purchased Russian weapons. However, with the coming to power of President Rodrigo Duterte, Manila began to show an active interest in establishing military-technical cooperation with Moscow. As Duterte explained, "when Russia sells weapon, it does not impose any conditions ", unlike the United States.

Earlier, information was published that Russia donated five thousand Kalashnikov assault rifles, a million rounds of ammunition and 20 military trucks to Manila. This military equipment was supposed to arrive in the Philippines on October 22.

        Is it right to sell weapons without conditions? Or maybe Duterte liked our conditions more? Or we, maybe, about conditions then ...?

    What can I say .. They give back what we have enough for ourselves .. Royalty-free. That is for nothing. Although we don’t know what they signed on there, if only the weapons did not reach those who are contraindicated.

      Here the main thing is to plant, trade is the trade of 5 tons of machine guns is not so much, there you see the cartridges run out (hot guys) they will shoot the trunks. They’ll run out of trucks. They will ask again, here with the words, we knew that you would like it, you could sell it.

        Quite right. By the way, the fact is that during the Japanese occupation the Americans dropped disposable pistols to the Filipino partisans .. This is such a "support"

      Well, if there stir up the Naval base, then it's not bad! If only there was enough finance so that the pants would not be torn at wide steps.

    As Duterte explained, “when Russia sells weapons, it does not impose any conditions,” unlike the United States. ”So this Duarte’s weapon acquired in Russia can be sold to guys from the IS prohibited in Russia. Americans would impose their conditions, Russia will not impose conditions. Do what you want. Then blame America

    1 cartridges per 000 machine guns - 000 pieces per machine gun? 5-000 horns per brother? Somehow it will not be enough.
    Although, maybe they planted on our weapons? In small doses.

    It is just that Duterte is gradually emerging from the influence of the stripes, and Russia is very profitable. That's the whole layout. Therefore, a small seed in the form of free weapons and equipment.

      What influence does the US come out of? Dude just forgot that one half of filipoids sail with the lowest crew to the seas (most of the crew on American ships are philips), and the other works as garbage collectors and nannies in the USA. It is worth America to snap your fingers-to impose restrictions on the issuance of visas to the United States and the filipoids themselves will remove Duterte-will carry forward feet ....

        most of the crew on American ships

        This is from where such information, they themselves came up with or in a dream dreamed?
        I work at sea and we have ordinary staff - Filipinos, as well as mechanics and second helpers. I work for a European office. And how many more American offices around the world? Do you want to say that the American fleet is much larger in tonnage of the rest of the fleet of other countries in the World?
