      There will be only vegetable base there! And we can't see a military base there! The main thing is to beg for the equipment for free, and the territory for the base will be found for the US, go the Chinese!

    if this is a photo of these particular machines, then the modernization seems to have been minimal. those that were sent to Serbia, in addition to the filling, are also covered with additional armor.

    Blacks - military equipment for free.
    Russian pensioners - a ban on public transport, muzzles and house arrest due to coronavirus.
    And who are the negros after that?

      This is politics. There, so to speak, the flag is stuck, otherwise others will stick. And in fact, these mess of Russia nafig is not needed. At storage bases, an immeasurable amount of this junk is rusting, and so at least political dividends.

          Well, keeping and maintaining old equipment costs money too. You can't leave them in the forest. Low humidity is maintained at storage bases, it still needs to be protected, plus it must be kept in good condition (battery gaskets and other consumables). And it takes people and money. Moreover, this rarity is outdated. And so there is less scrap metal, fewer problems.
          And so political loyalty increases the chances of defense contracts, well, resource development and other economic privileges. The country may be poor, but the resources are there.

            Here are the typical "storage bases" in Russia (and Ukraine). It is necessary to free up space ... at least for transportation from Africans to tear off (exchange for ivory).

      Do not judge strictly BRDM not modernized, most likely unmothballed and sent. Why not get polit. dividends from technology that gathers dust?

      I doubt that the new Russian army needs such relics as the BRDM-2 .. But in the vast African savannas against the Papuans with rusty AK-47s - you look, and they will come in handy ..

      Well, where is the logic? To expel pensioners to the streets so that they become infected and die, and you happily jumped and shouted that Putin was reducing the number of pensioners by his inaction?

    I approve of the remote education of African children by the Kremlin "bears". And the technique is in vain, they will throw it into the field at the first "nix". Although, keeping museum exhibits also costs money. CAR-Russia peace, friendship, chewing gum, diamonds, and no more sectarian conflicts.

      "Bardachek" is not even a bead ... It's a string from beads. And nowadays Negroes are not like the medieval ones - so this gesture, of course, is just a show. Here's what and in what quantity they were also gifted, so that they would not interfere with doing business in the country, that's another story ...

    A consignment of humanitarian aid arrived in the CAR on the same flight, including sweets and ice cream for children and soft toys, including 100 thousand teddy bears ...

    Of course, I wonder how long everything will be donated for free ..... It is clear that the country is one of the poorest, somewhere at the level of Ukraine, it may be a little poorer. Nevertheless, cotton, coffee and diamonds are present there ....

    The key phrase, so it's not free of charge. The military presence of the Russian Federation has been there for a long time, and the old weapons
    This is not the first year that it has been going there. By the way, in Sudan we actually already have a military air base, so there will be no problems with supplies, since the airspace is open from the Indian Ocean.

    They put it free of charge ... but why is it so modest and at the expense of the budget? After all, there are also other unexplored Papuan reserves of diamonds. You can't look at this CAR without tears ... a strange almshouse at the exit turns out ... maybe some of our oligarchs bought something on the occasion out of boredom sad ?
