      Well, recently reported. According to the deputy head of the FSVTS, Russia is also considering the issue of deliveries of air defense systems to a number of Latin American countries. “Russian equipment is in high demand around the world, and they are actively eyeing it in Latin America. Negotiations on the acquisition by countries of Russian air defense systems are at various stages of implementation, but it is too early to talk about their completion, ”Mr. Punchuk said.

        a strange question, considering that you are dropping a video 3 years ago - if there is nothing newer, then it’s the same with this construction site

        You're right. This is an investment such as "investing in future profits with the risk of no return on deposits." It will be necessary to protect the builders and the construction from the actions of angry local residents (during the construction of the canal, many property owners will lose their property. They will be given good money, but the mentality against the changes is the lands and graves of their ancestors, etc.) We will have to build military bases. Russian and Chinese, and all this in the underbelly of the United States. Here you have a return on investment, and interest from the operation of the channel will be taken.

          Are you kidding, or do you really think so.? If you have to defend construction, it’s from the striped “partners” and their provocations

      You would see the parade of the Latvian NATO army in Riga, Nicaraguans in comparison with them will seem a powerful army, of course, not without Russian military equipment. At the parade, Nicaraguans drove our uranium-6 robotic sappers on red trailers, K4310 Kamaz vans (apparently communication vehicles), and even fire trucks based on Kamaz trucks ...
      And the combat school is felt ours.

    T-72Б1, modernized at OJSC "61 armored repair plant" in the Leningrad Region, exceeds Chile's existing Leopard-2A4

    Which is superior? An equivalent technique can be inferior only in the resource, because enemy tanks were purchased before .....
