        "Not enough of course" - There are still not enough prepared areas for this. "until the completion of the construction of regular landing sites, parking lots and office facilities"- It is important to start, there will be where to start, then you can still throw in something useful.

      Unfortunately, the war there is inevitable ... everyone benefits except Russia, however, we also have interests ... Turkey, the USA, Armenia, Azerbaijan ... even Iran wants to weaken Azerbaijan, given that most of the Azerbaijanis live in Iran, and their support national state is not profitable

        You have nothing like the Ukrainians from the Maidan, the Libyans, etc. but politicians who are promised a mini-palace and a couple of billions of compensation may need to. Alas, now the common people decide little, competent propaganda or repression are doing their job (they organize a provocation, the idea of ​​returning Karabakh by force under the slogan "Turkey will help us" and voila).

        Our leaders are all overshadowed by the golden body, the main thing is profit, and even there the grass does not grow. Not everyone in Azerbaijan is against Russia, all the same = so many years together. But directors overseas are also doing their job, and efficiently. God grant that there will be a majority of people with your type of thinking!

      Media: Russia refused to sell combat aircraft to Azerbaijan

      mil.ru

      BAKU, April 25. Negotiations between Russia and Azerbaijan on the purchase of Su-27, Su-30 and MiG-31 combat aircraft ended to no avail.

      Sources in the Ministry of Defense of Azerbaijan told the Azeri Press agency about this.

      "As a result of the efforts of the Armenians holding senior positions in the United Aircraft Corporation, as well as in the MiG and Sukhoi enterprises, negotiations with Russia on the purchase of Su-27, Su-30 and MiG-31 combat aircraft ended in vain. Russia refused to sell Azerbaijan has combat aircraft, with the exception of the Yak-130 training aircraft, "the Azerbaijani website writes.

    It's not just the Turks. According to the dreams of the Kurds, part of Armenia is included in their Kurdistan.

    With all the positive information, it is difficult to call these helicopters "modern". MI-24P is not a new, but quite workable machine, but MI-8MT is far from the most "fresh" version of the eight. This may of course be caused by high altitude applications. But in any case, colleagues, these modifications are not modern. hi

      What's the point? We have a common border with Azerbaijan, in which case we can transfer equipment there. This base is yab said it is symbolic "we are cooperating in Armenia and an attack on it will be regarded as an attack on us" and can only delay the advance of a potential enemy for a while, the main load will be borne by the Southern Military District, which, by the way, is well equipped.

    We are creating deployment points to quickly strengthen our group in Syria, in which case.
    After all, it is clear that even if the S-400 and the Moskva protect us,
    but with a really massive attack this will not help much.
    And in the event of a breakthrough from Afghanistan, you need to quickly transfer the composition.
    Of course, then we will take revenge, cruelly take revenge.
    But we would like less of our victims.
