          But our multi-skill master likes to decorate various conditional Venezuelans with new equipment for the loan taken from us, and when they shoe us with payments, wait 10 years and write off the debt.

            But our multi-master craftsman loves to play with various conditional Venezuelans

            These are the emotions of a young communist laughing Three times (in 2009, 2012 and 2014), Venezuela allocated large loans for the purchase of weapons in the Russian Federation. In 2009, the loan amounted to - 2,2 billion dollars, in 2012 - 2 billion dollars, in 2014 - also 2 billion dollars at 7,4% per annum. In 2005, Gazprom won the tender and obtained a license for exploration and production of gas offshore in the Gulf of Venezuela. In 2011, a Russian-Venezuelan bank was created, the shares in the authorized capital of which are distributed as follows: 50% - National Development Fund (Venezuela), 25% - Gazprombank and VTB Group. Since 2010, the Housing Fund under the Mayor of Moscow and Russian contractors have been participating in the project “The Great Housing Mission” for the construction of standard panel housing (approximately 10 thousand apartments in high-rise buildings). The project provides not only housing and infrastructure, but also the organization of nine joint ventures for the production of building materials. Those. receiving interest on loans, sold weapons, giving their hard workers work, climbed into mining, construction and the banking sector. All according to your favorite Marx wassat

                Your moaning has been discussed more than once. Each write-off of debts has a subtext, could you make a calculation for each country regarding the development of minerals, industry, energy, etc., but you, as a young communist, can’t prove anything. For the cancellation and restructuring of exactly the gifts of the Bolsheviks of the USSR. You, as a fanatic of the world revolution, have Trotsky with an ice ax in your head wassat

            If they give something, then the loop on the neck is tightened very tight so that they do not even twitch.

          “Present” and “pindocs” are incompatible concepts. Not by bucks, so by territories, by gas, by oil, by grazing onto objectionable countries ... but they will take theirs. A gift from them will not work.

    In fiscal year 2017 (ended September 30), the United States sold $ 41,93 billion worth of arms to other countries.

    And how many of them were obtained through political pressure on the elites of the buying countries?
    Some might well not have taken a mattress weapon, but they were forced to buy by intrigue, pressure and blackmail.

      I don’t know how ours set the price for this or that product, but I think we need to adjust prices closer to American ones. Several times the information sounded that we even sell RD-181 rocket engines to mattress covers below cost. And to be honest I won’t be surprised if this is so. Or take away on a rollback or bend.

    The United States in the 2017 fiscal year (September 30 ended) sold armaments to other countries for a total of $ 41,93 billion, TASS reports.

    It seems everything is clear, but the comments, as always, are burning ...
    The United States pressed, the United States donated, the United States forced, etc.
    And how much and to whom did we sell weapons? How many we pressed, how many made, how many gave? (this is a rhetorical question)

    America is forced to buy its slaves. Try not to take it, they will change politics and put another in this country. You don’t have to go far - take Poland, they will all take what the United States does not offer.
