The United States is trying to buy Soviet and Russian weapons in Latin America for Ukraine

The United States, in an attempt to provide Ukraine with Soviet-style weapons, has already gutted the arsenals of Europe, gutted Africa and reached Latin America. Despite the fact that this continent is located quite far from Russia, many countries there have Soviet and Russian weapons and equipment.

The United States is trying to buy Soviet and Russian in Latin America weapon, offering to replace the supply of American. As the head of the US Southern Command, General Laura Richardson, explained, work is underway with six countries in the region. Three countries have refused such an honor, we are talking about Cuba, Nicaragua and Venezuela.



Russia has allies in the [governments] of Cuba, Venezuela and Nicaragua, but six other countries in the region have Russian military hardware. (...) The US is trying to encourage these six countries to donate Russian military equipment to Ukraine and replace it with American weapons

Richardson stated.

Despite the activity of the Americans, not everything works out for them. As it turned out, Russia's position in Latin America is quite strong, and even China is not sleeping, but has developed a vigorous activity there. Washington directly states that the US competitors in the countries of this region are Russia, China and "transnational criminal organizations."

(...) other countries such as Mexico, Peru, Argentina, Colombia, Brazil also have Russian or Soviet weapons. (...) We are working to replace these Russian weapons with American ones if these countries want to transfer them to Ukraine

added the general.

    According to the text: "US competitors in the countries of this region are Russia, China and" transnational criminal organizations ". Surprisingly, from the position of the striped ones it should look like this: ".. are Russia, China and OTHER" transnational criminal organizations ". Maybe the translation was wrong?

        For so many years the US has been wiping its feet on Latin America, and now they need something themselves.

        Everything is much more prosaic and we also need to act when selling our goods and products.
        The Yankees count money and are well aware that by buying back Soviet weapons at bargain prices and selling their own at their own prices (or maybe even at a discount or to replace the purchased one), they tie these countries to their weapons and the military-industrial complex.
        The smart way to achieve your goals. Yes

          the moment of truth has come - now the Americans will find out the true price of their weapons, but they won’t tell us about it

    The Republic of Peru is the largest operator of Russian and Soviet equipment. But they are gouging in terms of maintenance. Tested on fishing boats.

    Why would they make it difficult? The United States has a lot of equipment in storage, the equipment of the times of the USSR is finite (Unless China goes over to the side of darkness). They would transfer right away. Cobra is a completely modern attack helicopter, M60, M113, old self-propelled guns and howitzers. Everything is there and a lot.

      To operate this "heap of equipment" it is necessary to retrain a "heap of people" sharpened for USSR equipment, equip repair bases, arrange for the supply of spare parts, train combat crews and crews .... Complicate? You just don't seem to get the point... hi

        And then all this American equipment donated in return will need to be serviced, spare parts, ammunition, etc., bought in the USA. bully

        The bottom line is simple, anyone who buys weapons in the United States immediately becomes a hostage of the United States, and even flies into huge "grandmothers".

    We are working to replace these Russian weapons with American ones if these countries want to transfer them to Ukraine

    How competently the question is posed. Do not sell it to the Americans, but transfer it to Ukraine (for American money, of course), but thereby achieve two goals, drag the country into the camp of an enemy of Russia.
    Although the question is of course interesting, aren’t the conditions for re-export spelled out in the contracts?

      Yes, the United States has long put both contracts and international laws - "We are the United States, we are the law, we are the contract, we are your masters."

      In all agreements for re-export, at least the consent of the country of origin (us) is required, and in some cases a direct ban on re-export is prescribed.

    Want is not harmful. Even the corrupt elites of the third world understand that if you change to American, then you will be left without pants, there will be nothing to nightmare competitors, they still see how Saudi Arabia with expensive weapons cannot cope with peasants with machine guns. They will give something without a doubt, but I don’t think that cheap, when these elites have a choice, it’s other money. Yes, and the Americans still keep in mind that the Chinese will occupy the vacated warehouses, and this is also not ice.

    Here, with one bullet, two birds with one stone. For Ukraine, Soviet technology is easier to use, they still gouge everything. In the future, these countries will have "made in USA" equipment. And where will they get spare parts and upgrades? The more old equipment the USA sells, the longer they will send gears for dearly. Well, in the future, the renewal of the park and all that. And in Ukraine everything will burn free of charge. Cunning Americans will find profit everywhere.

    We are working to replace these Russian weapons with American ones.
    And how Americans work is known. Where the gingerbread does not work, blackmail and threats are used. Therefore, it is possible that some countries will be forced to agree with the "proposal" of the United States. Another question is what is the state of this technique today?

    ... US competitors in the countries of this region are Russia, China and "transnational criminal organizations."
    About the fact that Russia and China are US competitors in this region, I understood this. But how can the US compete with itself in this region? I'm talking about these same "transnational criminal organizations", because everyone knows that the most important transnational criminal organization is the United States itself.

    A rotten idea, to believe America, do not respect yourself. Even if they put the equipment, it will be with a "bookmark" when necessary, it will be turned off. Saddam faced this. In any case, money in the morning, chairs in the evening. It is possible on the contrary, but money in advance.
