      The USSR and the ATS would not collapse, we would also conduct exercises somewhere in Cuba, and I doubt that under the news about these exercises you would write exactly the same comments

      In fairness. In the Soviet and Russian Armed Forces, too, disasters occurred far beyond the borders of their native country.

          I don’t understand, if you agree, then why write this?

          For the sake of a collection of "plus signs" from thoughtless urya-patriots or what? Well, at least be a little objective and do not be like the Yankes, who believe that they can do what others cannot. hi

            To be a little objective, it’s obvious - we are in unequal conditions with the North Atlantic Alliance in terms of the presence of an opponent off the coast hi
            And the presence of one ship of Canada (plus 10 NATO ships) for us is a greater provocation than for Canada the presence of one ship of the Russian Navy

      Friends themselves come to the rescue (apparently at the behest of the soul, or whatever they have there). In the Baltic countries, Canadians are the base contingent of NATO forces.

      ~ $ 182 million was worth this latest helicopter.
      5 billion contract and even 112 million then paid extra for 28 helicopters.
      More expensive F-35 is now obtained PLO helicopter. A little expensive ... hi http://airwar.ru/enc/uh/ch148.html
