Pakistan will return "Soviet" debt to Russia

53

A remarkable agreement has been signed between Russia and Pakistan. And it is noteworthy in that out of the many countries that have a debt to the Russian Federation that has remained since the days of the USSR, Pakistan is becoming one of the few states that are ready to pay this debt.

The reports said that official Islamabad pledged to repay debt to the Russian Federation in the amount of 93,5 million dollars. This debt was accumulated by Pakistan to the USSR during trade operations in different years.



It is noted that on the part of the Russian Federation the agreement on the repayment of the debt was signed by Deputy Minister of Finance Sergey Storchak, and on the part of Pakistan - by the ambassador to Moscow Kazi Khalilulla.

Pakistan will credit funds to an account in the Russian Federation within three months.

It is noteworthy that Pakistan was previously ready to pay off the “Soviet” debt to the Russian Federation, but the funds were blocked on the accounts of VEB.RF due to the fact that the parties did not conclude an agreement on measures to resolve counter claims.

On what kind of financial claims Pakistan puts forward to Russia, at the moment is not reported.

It should be noted that at one time between the USSR and Pakistan there were, to put it mildly, not simple relations, but countries nevertheless engaged in mutual trade in one volume or another.

    I understand that Pakistan needed something from the Russian Federation. It was urgent to be friends. Or why suddenly, after 30 years of hammering on this meager duty, conscience suddenly woke up?

                If parity can be achieved in tanks and aviation, then air defense ... US Hindus are scared by sanctions ... But they don’t give up ... Packs already had a negative experience counting only on Amer’s weapons. Tanks from the non-brothers bought t-84 (consider Soviet) against Russian-Indians t-90 (again, by and large, Soviet). With the acquisition of the S-400 Indians, they will definitely be in the red.

I’m not going to be here, then Su-35 will give me Mirages, but the packs still understand, since Iran is cheekily chewing on himself with Russian air defense, then there’s no way to exchange money for coins, it's time to go to the wars of Rossoboronprom

                    The behavior of the Hindus is another question, but the example of Iran and the Turks clearly shows that it is better to have a S-400 than to be in a situation where someone will have ... well, the one who does not have a S-400 ...

                      that it’s better to have an S-400 than to be in a situation ..... that’s exactly when the Saddam House bought a fair amount of air defense and explosive missiles in France, neither of which worked from the word ABSOLUTELY. All losses to the Americans were inflicted only by Soviet-made air defense systems. and the ancients at meter waves, the packs know this from their own experience, although they do not officially recognize losses. but they definitely made a conclusion

        Here are the boobies! It was necessary to act like everyone else - to present this debt irrevocable and offer to start from scratch. But in general, it is a pity that Russia easily parted with the Soviet legacy.

      Whatever it was, or conscience woke up, or not, maybe it is necessary that from Russia. But no one else woke up conscience, how many 14 former republics, the CMEA countries and beyond, no one will return, and the "non-brothers" will still tear off more, even the last 3 lard do not want to give away, greedy, greedy screaming with foam at the mouth, " you must, return for the occupation and the famine. and the worldwide flood. "And all will not choke. So, against their background, Pakistan looks much better, even in spite of Badaber.

    To make things easier to understand, you need to add a little information:
    Agreement on the settlement of mutual financial claims and obligations on operations of the former USSR signed December 2 between Moscow and Islamabad.
    Still Islamabad blocked this agreement [by which Pakistan will now be able to return to Russia the $ 93,5 million that it owed to the Soviet Union] due to counterclaims against Moscow, which eventually managed to be settledthat became known a month ago.

    Pakistan will return "Soviet" debt to Russia
    Oh, why? literally a month ago, they hung noodles on our ears ... sorry, through the lips of Minister Lavrov, they explained to us most highly that billions of dollars in debt to African countries have been forgiven because they have been hanging since the days of the USSR, which means that no one will ever return them. Paki cho stupid? Or did they lie to us through the lips of Minister Lavrov?

    Dushmans trained on the territory of Pakistan, who then went to kill our guys in Afghanistan.
    There were CIA prisons where we were tortured, killed, and mocked them.
    In the fortress of Badaber, the uprising of Soviet prisoners was crushed - no one survived.
    Even the Taliban itself is a product of the Pakistani special services.
    For this we will be repaid debt?
    And how can this even be compensated?

Soviet, as well as American, intervention is the arrival of a house absolutely alien to them.

    You read the comments and don’t understand the logic: Forgiven the RF debts - bad. If anyone wants to return, it’s also bad. Some of them won 93,5 million bucks. If at least in some region of Russia this money is invested in the development of infrastructure, without cutting, kickbacks, 33 subcontractors, normal roads can be made, equipping hospitals with new equipment is it really bad?
