      There is such a thing as "gringo" in Mexico! You know what I mean ..? And also the United States is trying to separate themselves from the fence .. This is a US sale (strange))), an attempt to buy peace of mind on its borders ...
      Russians are going to the continent this time with serious intentions!
      Russia is doing everything right that it doesn’t close on its territory (as if the Russian bear woke up and were not driven back into the den by barking from all sides))))) It's too late gentlemen!

    Judging by the armament of the same Corvette and not the Frigate. In any case, by Russian standards.
    Maybe his seaworthiness is improved?
