      Bananas and oil in exchange for missile cruisers with delivery vehicles of various interesting warheads to the United States for a flight time of 8 minutes. As from the base Deveselu in Romania to the Russian Federation.

      This is a hint of the United States that in order to deploy missiles in Cuba and Venezuela, Russia no longer needs to build bases there, but rather the same frigate, etc. 22350 and 16 with gauges on board, to visit us in friendly countries.

        It's still better to have bases - it's more reliable. But before dealing with the bases "on the distant shores," it would be good to agree on the possibility of ships calling and the creation of a logistics support point. On which there may be a container station or just a platform for containers. With a secret. This is cheaper, more reliable and always in place - no need to keep ships.
        Soon the "Admiral Lazarev" will come out of modernization - his visits of friendship will be more convincing. Upgraded submarine cruisers 949A with Zircon and Caliber-M cruise missiles (range up to 4500 km) in a quantity of at least 72 units will be able to cruise along the American coast. on board. The MTO point will also be very useful for them to replenish stocks.
        Venezuela will feel more confident, and Russia will be able to create an alternative threat to the United States in the region - in response to a threat from the United States and NATO in Europe.
        The world will become much more stable.
        And be kind.

          Why should Turkey reap a tail? Everything is normal there - with the straits, order, buy weapons and want more, waved to bring mutual trade to 100 billion dollars. ... The USA and Israel are nervous about this - that means we are on the right track.
          Shag must be an American grandmother.
          And from Venezuela it’s convenient to do it.
          And we have considerable economic interests there - oil, gold, etc.
          So - more containers - large, sea and interesting.

        There is a certain casuistry in this statement of Lavrov. (in no case do not justify anyone) If Japan fully recognizes the results of WWII, then the issue of transferring the islands should disappear by itself.

              IMF Report on the Russian Federation of 2017 of the year No. 17 / 197 (https://www.imf.org/en/Countries/ResRep/RUS):
              - it was recommended to increase the "retirement" age (item 16);
              - It is recommended to increase VAT (paragraph 31 of the report).
              From the latest recommendations (May 2019) - continue to invest in the National Wealth Fund in high-quality foreign assets.

        The Yapis understand that after the signing of the agreement, we, before the actual transfer of the 2 islands (as it turned out to my surprise) will ask for guarantees that US bases or weapons will not be deployed on these islands. And since yapis are very much on the needle of approval of the United States, which this does not suit at all, they only have to add on the island’s maps .... and things are still there.

          Nikolay shouldn't deceive yourself. The cart at the fair. There is a bargaining and just did not agree on the price of the issue. And talk about a peace treaty, "international law", guarantees and other diplomatic crap for people. All guarantees and contracts are ephemeral. Only the islands are real. And how they will go to the Yapam, by agreement or by a broad "gesture of goodwill" is not important. It is about the control of the islands in question. And Lavrov made this clear unequivocally. But about "we won't give up an inch of land" I have never heard from him.

      Not later than a month ago, the question was why the wording "first a peace treaty, then the islands" for the Japanese categorically unacceptable, understood in detail, thoughtfully and repeatedly.

      In this regard, the question is already for you: is your memory so short, or are there just no other reasons left to troll? wink

          Once again: this statement is not the first time it sounds. And already several times here, in VO, smart people explained why the Japanese do not like this option.

          Accordingly, there will be no peace treaty. Then think for yourself, I hope.

          (aside): campaign, still problems with understanding yes

    Uhhh .. is this a subtle hint of supplying a pair of frigates to Venezuela?

    Which you can count on your fingers?

    A good blow to the Americans just below the waist, not just in the ass, but in a very painful place.

    Good punch? Yes, they do not care about Venezuela and these visits of our ships

    hint to supply a pair of frigates to Venezuela?

    Bananas and oil in exchange for missile cruisers with delivery vehicles of various interesting warheads to the United States for a flight time of 8 minutes. As from the base Deveselu in Romania to the Russian Federation.

    Do we have such missile cruisers that fire missiles at 2000 km? Yes, in 8 minutes? Maybe some galactic cruisers, but I didn’t hear that they were in service with us

    Quote: APASUS
    Maybe ours is also renting a piece of land from Venezuela, well, just in case? To fight world terrorism for example

    Is there money for this? Although you think a few hundred billion dollars is such a trifle ... Raise the payroll to 75-80 years, cut the salary by half - we will find the money for the base, which is not needed there

    Quote: Ros 56
    Our task is to get the missile defense base there, as the stripes in Poland and Romania set. Parity should be.

    What are you going to shoot? From a slingshot? We do not have such medium-range missile defense missiles as the Americans. The base can be clogged up - several hundred billion dollars and the base will be. Is there money at the base ??? Moreover, such a base is needed in Venezuela as a fifth wheel cart or a fifth leg for a dog. Think about where the trajectory of American missiles will be, and where our missiles will be and how to get to American missiles, when our missiles will have a speed of 4 km / s and their ICBMs will reach 7,8 km / s, and you will have to shoot after them. ..

    On a rotational basis, keep a boat with iskanders there, just in case.

    It is even possible on an ongoing basis. Put it on a pedestal, as a monument, or put it at the pier and take money for viewing these "terrible" Calibers (there are no Iskander on the ships).

    Strategically, that is, for many years to come, it is more profitable to gain a foothold economically, that is, to sell non-military equipment, to create local production with components from Russia. Well, the most painful thing for the USA is if Russian and Chinese signalmen (mobile operators and equipment) gain a foothold in Venezuela. At the expense of ships, in Russia they produce few sea vessels, they themselves are not enough, so it is best for Venezuela to buy modern ships from different countries, there is a lot of choice.

    Will Venezuelans come on oars? Like Fedor Konyukhov. The economic situation is getting worse, although it would seem much narrower. More than 10% were dumped abroad.

    There is one vile question - why? What does Russia get from military-political cooperation with Venezuela? Well, the states will come to the tail, is it worth it? More precisely, is the cost of pleasure comparable with the cost of investing in a dubious state?

      The United States went to attack oil-producing countries, which means they want to control the oil market and have a percentage of sales. It is not beneficial for Russia if the Americans manage the oil market and create various problems, from restricting sales of Russian oil to limiting the price of Russian oil. But supplying weapons is also not profitable, the Americans will quickly learn the technology, but the supply of civilian products will not harm Russia, only benefits.

        The matter is small, it remains only to understand: what kind of "civilian" products are produced in Russia, comparable in price and quality with the products of other countries?

    however evil takes the Jews that Nicholas is solvent; oil is oil; so that we can sell any ship or submarine on credit for the development of new deposits; well, bananas also come in handy if not too expensive, and what a little resort for children and preferably free on the coast doesn’t hurt - Angel Falls well or a beautiful angel

      Of course he is solvent! Do you know how much money they have? I recently saw on TV how one Bolivarian went to the bakery, he had a full bag of money to buy one loaf. So, there is a LOT of money there!
