      So far, Slovaks are not sufficiently dependent on the SGA.
      Amertians will help increase dependence to the average plebeian level.

        as always, they first push the technicians for a cheap price or for nothing, and then it turns out that it is necessary to spend ("real money") on maintenance or modernization more (more expensive) than if they were purchased from competitors with superior ones. har-ami. This is not even considering the cost of ammunition. Ironically, you don't have to go far for the example of Slovakia - Ukraine with HAMERS.

        This is the same as taking a loan at one bank at 15%, and then, to evil, re-lend to him at another at 30% and repay the debt ahead of schedule.

        Washington will help Slovakia reduce its dependence on Russian technology, develop a military doctrine, train soldiers and personnel, conduct exercises and maneuvers, issue a permit for military operations.
        And all that remains for you is to mourn your soldiers

          “Work promised to support Slovakia in the implementation of the plan for modernization (of the country's army), compatibility with NATO standards,
          as well as efforts to reduce dependence on Russian technology ”

          And what a dependency on America will appear when servicing that equipment!
          This Soviet and Russian could be repaired with the help of "scrap and some kind of mother",
          and you can’t even make out the American with your tool!
          Even screwdrivers and keys will be purchased in the States!

      They will give money on credit, they will master it themselves. So the Slovaks will have a financial and military dependence. And the old Soviet equipment will be given to the IG.

      More precisely, the United States will drive old stuff out of its stocks at the price of new ones, and even on credit at 10500% per annum, and after that it will still poke who and what to do with its dirty hands in the government, for they are BENEFITORS !!!

    Another garbage can for the American decommissioned military equipment and technology. And blankets from cholera typhoid huts, as for the Indians .. Perhaps they will give money on credit, and they will master it. So the Slovaks will have a financial and military dependence ...

    The gentlemen from YUS are doing everything right. A "white" gentleman with Kenyan roots comes and offers awesome shemi gadgets + wunderfafli wink
    The prodigies are advertised by the most truthful film studio in the world and this is beyond doubt.
    Under it all and everything are ground.
    Everyone has been accustomed to this over the past 30 years.
    All dutifully agree with this.
    This is a business, nothing personal ...

    There is a saying, "God, that doesn't suit us," so the Americans will throw off the trash to the Slovaks. One thing is insulting when they were brothers Slavs. It turns out that the free Slavs remained only in Russia and Belarus, the rest caved in under America.
