Mexico explained why they are afraid to buy Russian military helicopters


The Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Mexico claims that the acquisition of Russian-made military helicopters will not take place. The reason for this was the threat of American sanctions.


This information was published by the newspaper El Universal from Mexico, citing employees of the department.

Soon this information was confirmed by a source in the Mexican Foreign Ministry, without giving details and without giving a reason for refusing the transaction.

Information on Mexico’s purchase of Russian helicopters last week was reported by Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov during a press conference in Mexico City. He said that Rosoboronexport is in talks with the Mexican side on a number of issues, including those related to the purchase of military helicopters. The minister also noted that in Mexico there are already about 50 Russian helicopters, a service station and a crew training center.

Soon after, on February 13, Assistant Secretary of State of the United States Hugo Rodriguez announced that the United States did not exclude the imposition of sanctions against Mexico in the case of the purchase of the latest Russian helicopters or other military equipment manufactured in Russia.

    There are different forms of ownership ... for example, leasing. Formally, a rental car.

          Why do Mexicans have such difficulties? They will do this only if the profit from the use of our helicopters is twice as much as from the American.

            It will not even be in two, but in three if you take into account the price and technical support, where you saw the Americans cheap military equipment. But they still won’t buy, it's Mexico -American Ukraine

                Leasing is a financial lease. It can be like with the right of redemption - as a rule, in this case, the redemption price consists of rental payments (this is the most common option), and maybe without the right of redemption.

                  the redemption price also includes the lessor’s margin, the lessor takes the bank’s money, acquires a leasing measure and transfers it to the recipient.

                  And now I explain to you in Russian that at the time of imposing sanctions against bureaucrats and oligarchs from the inner circle, a huge amount of money stolen was withdrawn into the crypt, and Deripaska, having free energy for him, began to mine the same crypt on his own, building many mining farms, but rather mining factories, having unprecedented gesheft from this, since demand was far ahead of supply. At that time, the president was very enthusiastic about digitalization of the economy and other things to simple reason beyond the control of I hope EGA, so you understand?

        Have you decided to arrange another revolution with consequences? Then you have to dispossess all the oligarchs such as Abramovich, etc. Nationalize everything around. And what will it lead to?
        GDP has made it clear that there will be no privatization results.

        It turns out interestingly: he promised about retirement periods that while he is president ...
        So what the hell is not joking.
        But the oligarchs have only one path: we will not dispossess them here, they will dispossess them where scarves instead of towels are in the bathrooms.

    The sanctions were scared. But, boasting about their "independence," the Americans continue to scornfully call the "gringo." But as soon as the gringo hinted at sanctions, interest in Russian helicopters immediately disappeared.

    The reason for this was the threat of American sanctions.
    Yes, no one doubted. You can’t buy the best, because it’s Russian. Buy worse and more expensive, because American. Otherwise, sanctions. Here you have the whole truth of life. And also everything you need to know about "blessed capitalism" and the "free market".

    The Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Mexico claims that the acquisition of Russian-made military helicopters will not take place. The reason for this was the threat of American sanctions.
    . The United States had not even threatened them, and the Mexicans were already liquid. Why do they need combat helicopters? They have more white sheets and diapers

    Until Russia starts to behave super hard with all sorts of radishes, nothing will change. Now, if you prohibit rd180, titanium, places on unions, etc. With them, only an example is shown. Immediately collect all subjects in a cage and only for exchange. And then the ICC is not a decree for them, but we, like, persuade everything. And they only need this. Inhumans, spoiled the whole mood in the morning.

    It is necessary to take eggs in a fist and introduce retaliatory sanctions and take other measures to purchase American equipment. Anyway, why increase exports with such difficulties and humiliations, if they themselves have a shortage of weapons and military equipment. It's time to start printing rubles and hammer machines with orders for the Russian Federation.

      For starters, do not go to McDonald's, do not drink Coca-Cola and other "pops", do not buy cars with American brands and owned by American companies ... do not buy iPhone in the end. It will be deleted from all American Internet resources, for example Twitter ... do not "google".

    For me, if they’ve already entered into all sorts of WTOs, then maybe it’s worth suing, and not bloating cheeks. It is clear that without options there is something to win, but to create hype and even precedents by the fact itself.

    "American Ukraine" is Texas, California. For example

    Texas is more like Mexican LPR and DPR.

    There is a suggestion -. let's give our turntables to the Mexicans for no reason at all, and in addition we will service them absolutely free, supply consumables, fuel and everything else, we will train the fliers, technical staff, and most importantly, we will pay them every year a nice amount, well, where something like a lyama bucks, for every turntable, only because they honor us and deign to use our turntables. Say insanity, certainly insanity, but for that our first persons will be able to screw somewhere somewhere- "But look at what cool heliocopters we have, even the MEXICANS themselves do not disdain to use them" That’s something our first person will be pleased laughing laughing laughing
