    Russia can not only export energy and modern weapons, which replenish our budget. Step by step, we reduce the dependence of the Russian economy on gas and oil exports.

          Walker Todd, who has been a consultant to the Federal Reserve System (FRS) for 20 years, made a forecast for the US economy. He said: "There are 60-90 days of life left as the dollar is on the verge of collapse."
          On Thursday night, March 12, 2015, on the Randy Yarbrough radio show of Johnstown, Colorado, Dr. Walker Todds made a startling prognosis. He said that the US economy has about 60-90 days to live as the dollar is on the verge of collapse.
          This is a serious prediction that comes from a person who is not ordinary, but who has great weight in financial circles.
          Dr. Todd has been an economic consultant with 20 years of experience with the Federal Reserve Bank of New York and the Federal Reserve Bank of Cleveland. He is also a member of the Cato Institute's Monetary Financial Alternatives Center.

            read. really curious. it is likely that this is the explanation for the "disappearance" of Putin. But, to be honest, they start out too small ... that and silly. Sense, getting up to the ears with Ukraine, getting involved in a slaughter with Russia, also provoke China? two powers cannot be defeated by one brazen PR. in general, it is not a rewarding thing to guess. time will tell

        The United States simply has a higher price tag. Here it is said that more dough is cut means the first! But in fact Russia is selling more, it’s all about the price!

          The United States uses NATO to its full standards. Those who do not have their normal VPK, like Germans or French, have to buy from the Americans. That is, NATO is a guaranteed market for the United States.

      Arms production will be in the Russian economy the locomotive that will help the country leave the crisis zone with the least losses.

    Arms market contributes to the development of the military-industrial complex, the creation of modern types of weapons.

      Come on, the weapons market has always been. Just due to the fact that its cost is growing, costs are increasing, thereby creating the impression that volumes are growing ...

    If we are making so much money on the sale of weapons, then why not. Let's say they are not there for the repair of "Sarychi", which has been on hold for a year, it is simply too lazy to continue the list where there is no money.

    US and RF continue to lead in arms exports

    One must think that weapons will be supplied: Someone will defend democracy, someone will defend against democracy ...

    Against the background of falling in the price of oil and other energy carriers, it is vital to develop the defense industry. This is not only the income from the sale of weapons, but the engine of progress in the country's economy. And here it is necessary to get away from dependence on other countries (in technology, in components).

    We know how to make good weapons, and cars, s / equipment, honey. food equipment, but in general we can’t do anything else.
    The reason is quite clear - the state cannot do everything at once, and the producers need profit immediately. Even China realized that the production of deshovki is a transfer of material and labor resources.
    There have always been bright heads in Russia, but for the most part, they work in the West because they see the results of their work, and do not bother how to grab a pretty penny, and no one is trying to appropriate these results.

    But Russia, in terms of modernity and quality in the first place of this export! Americans often force them to buy their weapons with their economic pressure. I read many articles where NATO countries write that they would like to have Russian weapons, but they are forced to follow the NATO directive and the USA!

    People! What are you happy about? What are we second in the death trade market ??? And we want to be the first ... Yes, of course you want the world to prepare for war ... but I’m not proud of it ... You think what percentage of the global economy goes to the development, production of weapons ... And now think that if the means sent to medicine, astronautics, agriculture ... What would we achieve ... I am not a utopian and I understand that this is fantastic, but we must strive for this. What is the future of mankind if everything continues to continue like this ???? You may not agree with me, this is my opinion ... And you can minus, but purely humanly, I’m right ...

      Maybe purely human you are right, but look at the world through pink glasses! A hybrid war against destruction is being waged against Russia, and indeed the entire Russian World, the economy is part of this war, and the arms trade is part of the economy. And giving the market is like giving up a whole front. And save your Purely Human slogans until the time when Fushington surrenders.
