          Rather, the Su-30K is commercial.

    It's nice to see the arrival of our technology in this country. I immediately remembered our participation in the war in this country (the 80s, who forgot). Then I had to manage the equipment of the airdromes (NII-33 and Polet helped). How beautifully the Cubans flew on our MiG-23. In three months, protvotnik aviation was completely destroyed. Raul Castro (I met him there) personally thanked his pilots. About the same as V.V. Ways yesterday thanked our military in Syria. Glorious were the times. The Americans were afraid of the USSR. I have the honor.

    You confuse my friend. For example, India handed them a patrol ship.

    And what can be taken from Angola for these aircraft? And I see no difference between the old (Soviet) and the new (Russian) approaches in these matters. What is the meaning of these supplies? Give the black people a loan, write down the amount of the debt, and after 5 (10 -20) years generally write off and slip other pieces of iron?
    And then they say that we have a very sensible foreign policy.
