    It’s a pity that they did not buy Russian patrol planes. After all, we defended your independence with the Cubans. Recall the mid-80s. How we equipped your airfields in Mekong and Quito. Yes, everything was quickly forgotten. And I am pleased to recall those times. Read my article, The Secret War and the Special Mission. I have the honor.
