Moscow and Belgrade are discussing a major military contract for the rearmament of the Serbian army

During the three-day visit of Serbian Prime Minister Alexander Vucic to Moscow, an unprecedented military contract in terms of content and amount will be discussed, involving the re-equipment of Serbian armed forces to Russian standards, the newspaper writes "Sight".




“Its signing can be a sensation. In fact, against the background of the scandal with the imminent entry into NATO of Montenegro, Moscow has found a way to prevent Serbia from joining the alliance, ”the newspaper notes.

The signing of this agreement will make impossible any plans for the integration of Serbia into NATO, since the republic will leave the unified rearmament system prepared for the new members of the alliance. In addition, an independent missile defense system will appear in the region.

The submission notes that “the total amount of the proposed contract is difficult to calculate,” but it can reach five billion euros.

“Against this background, any energy and innovation projects are dim, even if it is assumed that the contract will be based on a long-term credit system. In any case, this contract, if it is implemented, is unique not only for Serbia, but also for the entire Balkan region as a whole, ”the newspaper writes.

    Maybe not only the population, but also the leadership will finally understand that they need to be friends with Russia, and not hypocrites from the west?

      So, the Nora Serbian self-propelled howitzers are supposed to be equipped with wheelsets from KamAZ, and the Russian 2-mm 30A2 guns are to be put on the Lazar-42 BRDM platforms. However, this is not the main thing in comparison with Belgrade’s plans to acquire a missile defense system that would protect the country from low-flying missiles. In fact, the Serbs intend to take care of their defense against NATO, since their traditional opponents - neighbors who split from Yugoslavia - do not possess such missiles.

      Also, the Serbian army wants to get Russian transport and attack helicopters.

        First of all, you need to be friends with your people.
        Be independent in decision making.
        And remember who you are and who your ancestors are.
        And throwing from side to side leads to disasters and the collapse of countries.
        And we will help. As always.

      $ 5 billion from Serbia for rearmament? It seems more likely that this is such a form of our lending.

      I think that the Serbian government has long been pro-American, and no supply of arms can change this ... But all this is essentially a rearmament in debt (which Serbia will never repay) is simply an expense for Russia to nowhere, and besides then in the hands of those who are fighting against our interests ... As the NATO devils are now buying up Soviet anti-tank systems in all countries of the former Warsaw Pact and supplying ISIS ... Despite the presence of Soviet weapons in Bulgaria, this did not affect its entry in the EU and NATO ... And on standards about and then they will gradually buy American weapons, not just as Russian on loan, but for cash ... the United States is a more pragmatic state, they do not look for friends there and do not help anyone for free, they simply bribe the country's leaders for pennies and then push our economic interests in various fields earn a lot of money from this ... But we all believe in friendship between nations, but it hasn’t helped us yet ...

        Something after Ukraine, I strongly doubt the "brotherly" feelings. But the "freebie" and money, these are more understandable arguments. Rather, it is an “agreement of intent” striving to attract the attention of NATO and the EU.

          I support your opinion, especially since one color revolution in Serbia has already been successful. No matter how cynical it sounds, for the security of Russia, Serbia is important, but not critical, unlike Ukraine.

        Alexander 3 knew these “brothers” very well and was not eager to help, but did his son forget his father’s covenants and fit in with them and what did it lead to? After the Europeans, along with the amers, bombed them, they surrendered their president to the European Union, licked their ass after the WWII, Tito also hastened to disown his alliance with the USSR. So for me they are a little better than the Bulgarians and certainly not brothers.

      The Serbs were not when we were little brothers. They are not Bulgarians, the Serbs waged a guerrilla war, and I notice a good war with the Nazis. And the Bulgarians fought on the side of the Nazis against us. So teach history. fool

    I really hope that Serbia will make the right choice! And so, through the chur of Slavic peoples, it lies under the Anglo-Saxons, but if Catholics are Slavs, they are always cut off from the Orthodox Slavic world, then for countries such as Serbia, Montenegro .. ., this is truly a return to the time of the Ottoman yoke over these peoples! Slavery in the modern manner of Western democracies!

        I agree! The Indians were the same too, and where are they now? Rulers rule the people and they also trade the interests of their country wassat I think that the latest developments of Russian weapons will not reach them. Business and nothing personal.

    Expand and expand. And if they pay, then even more so. To me personally, gratitude is not needed, from anyone. Self-sufficient country, free to act at its discretion. Russia proposed, the Serbs gave the go-ahead. Of course, many do not like this activity. So we are and so, all our lives we live with caution. How long?

    The most important question is where did the little brothers get money for such a large-scale rearmament. Serbia is a very poor country. Only if they give them credit again. Of course, I would like to see an exchange of technologies, since in terms of weapons development they have always been great masters.

    The rearmament of the army is years. And society in Serbia is split. The "Old Guard" left with Tito. The latter - themselves surrendered to The Hague. What will unite the Serbs now? What is the purpose? The former "people's democracies" solved the security problem simply by pushing each other into NATO. What prevents the Serbs from doing this? The logic is simple - NATO membership is a defense against the United States. And the Russians - they will not attack. I think this is "Greek clowning." Bargain for maximum benefits when joining the EU and NATO.

    1. So far, only in words, the Bulgarians have also said a lot in words, and so on.
    2. and the most unpleasant:
    “Against this background, any energy and innovation projects fade, even if we assume that the contract will be based on a long-term lending system. In any case, this contract, if implemented, is unique not only for Serbia, but for the entire Balkan region as a whole. ”

    The re-equipment of Serbia at the expense of Russia, for a loan that will never be paid, name at least one country that ultimately paid the loans, India, maybe Vietnam has a part and that's it. Another thing is if this weapon is under the "complete control" of Russia. But again, I have to buy little brothers, because without this they can not.
    To pay a couple of billions to the West for his weapons, or to get weapons from Russia essentially for free, this is how you have to work with your little brothers, the main thing in which case you don’t lose the whole thing and don’t fly by 5 billion ..
