9
The representative of the Venezuelan armed forces, Major Acosta Prieto, said during a press conference at the Army Games “Safe Route” competition that in the next six months Venezuela will purchase a batch of Russian-made engineering equipment.



"We arrived here to study the engineering of the engineering troops of the Russian Federation, which will be purchased in the next six months to our army," he said. "Military Industrial Courier".

Prieto noted that at present the Venezuelan army is modernizing, and the command has chosen the Russian equipment, since it is "the best and most reliable in the world."

“We hope that as soon as the engineering equipment is purchased, Venezuela will be able to bring its team to the competition in order to compete in international army games,” he stressed.

It should be noted that teams from the Russian Federation, China, Belarus and Egypt came to the “Safe Route” competition. The first place according to the results of the competition went to the Russian military engineers, the second was taken by the Chinese soldiers.

      I will not tire of recalling the "entrances" of one of our "friends" (FOR THERE ARE SO SO MANY !!!) - a certain "bat atalef" from the promised land:
      - Yes, Venezuela surrendered to the fig of the Russian Federation? There is no toilet paper ...
      But such countries "without paper" make a cash register for our arms market, helping the Russian Federation to receive income NOT ONLY from raw materials ...
      ps.Here and in Egypt, God willing, our INDUSTRIAL cluster is being created, and we will release gazelles there. That's it.

        From my point of view. You are not quite right. Such countries as Venezuela and other small countries. Namely affect the image of our country. And military cooperation proves this. And putting the minus only because I have a different opinion is somehow at least incorrect. (I have no rudeness, insult or Anti-Russian statements in my comments, only personal opinion. To put it mildly (FOR SUCH SUCH MUCH !!! here is not entirely appropriate.

        Well, the point of view of our Israeli troll in this case is justified. What money will Venezuela buy equipment, what will it pay for and what political benefits will we get in this case? In Soviet times, we were engaged in large-scale charity work, and then we had to write off billions of debts that no one would return to us anyway. Of course, the spread of our technology is good, but forget about the pocket nefig.

          Are you seriously?? They killed you directly, before that I thought you were a serious enough commentator, balanced and sober, but here ... Have you heard about the oil reserves in the floodplain of the Orinoco River, which is Vineseula? Do you know about the volumes of extraction thereof in this country? than they will pay ... CURRENCY WILL BE PAYED, no worse than the Saudis before the amers! tongue

            Well, I do not chase the pros or cons, they don’t agree - feel free to minus, I will not be offended. The fact that despite all the oil reserves the financial situation of Venezuela is a shitty fact. Falling oil prices hit Venezuela very hard. Second, besides the very availability of oil, its availability is important. We can take Iranian oil as a payment for goods, since it is close enough and we can sell it together with ours quite calmly. Venezuelan oil is on the other side of the world, almost all of it goes to the USA and it is very inconvenient for us to resell it. The United States may simply refuse to buy it, there are enough suppliers. The stick has 2 ends - supplier and buyer. Yes, you can build a business for the resale of another's oil, but it will have to be confused. That is, if the United States refuses Venezuelan oil, we will have to look for a buyer for it and deal with its delivery. On the whole, I am not opposed to taking control of a section of the oil market, but this should be a calculated step with emphasis on our interests.

              Well, here another factor comes into play - the price. It is a long way to transport oil from the RoW, and the current situation there is extremely unstable. In connection with the more "expensive" oil, the price will rise and all products for the production of which in the form of raw materials or energy, this oil will be spent.
              Maybe it’s a penny, but for example, the yuan is already six times cheaper than the dollar - that is, goods from China, albeit a little worse quality, but similar to those produced in the USA, are six times cheaper.
              I wonder what not very money buyer will choose?

                In any case, politics is stronger than the economy. If the United States decides to abandon Venezuelan oil for political reasons, they will do so. They will lose a little, but they will. The same Saudis or Bahrain will gladly take their share of the American market. But Venezuela will be a serious blow and the loss of its key market.

    It’s a pity that you can’t watch these games in full on the video. This is a huge minus! No broadcasts .. everything except the pictures and the minute clips in the news didn’t really see anything. It’s a shame it should be to the organizers. How the world will know what happens if nothing is there. boy

    only we need to sell what we have on "canned food", providing our army, first of all, with new equipment. As it was in the USSR, customer # 1 is the Ministry of Defense!
