    There will probably be another provocation by the Saudis in Syria.

      These are actually offensive weapons ...
      If they are produced in Bulgaria under our licenses, then why does Russia not control its exports?
      It is not right ...

        Bulgarians refused to negotiate a license. Like, they made so many changes that this is already a purely Bulgarian weapon. And since they are in the cage of America's friends, they can violate all international treaties and codes. Such a tradition on planet Earth

          Production licensing questions are a very entertaining thing.

          Поляки утверждают, что лейба "водка" принадлежит им. В 70-х гг. был даже судебный спор с СССР. Они ссылаются на то, что польское слово «wódka» имеет исходный смысл «маленькая вода», «водичка». В Польше первое упоминание названия «wódka» в значении спиртного напитка письменно зафиксировано в 1405 году в судебных актах Сандомирского воеводства. В русских источниках название «водка», в том же значении, впервые упоминается в 1533 году.

        Потому что все наши бывшие братушки и прочие союзнички по сэв забили болт на все права на интеллектуальную собственность, обязанности лицензита и прочие нормы международного законодательства в отношении нашей страны. Потому что им всем разом разрешили так поступать главные "разрешители" всего и вся в этом "новом мире". Или еще проще (цитируя Пельменей) - потому что гладиолус. И так будет до тех пор пока "разрешителей" боятся больше нас. На мораль и этику в этих вопросах, не говоря уже о договорах, очевидно, надеяться не приходится. Обмистраливание в сфере международного сотрудничества впк продолжается в полный рост.

        Colleague, let me ask you a question. And how long have machine guns and grenade launchers become offensive weapons? Do not blame me, but somewhat exaggerate. As for licenses, the question is certainly interesting. And it is necessary to ask it to many countries, as an example, Romania, according to AKM, and so on. etc. hi

      Американская коалиция имеет право промазать и попасть в Сирийскую армию, может нам послать в Сирию "мазил" которые промажут и попадут в Саудитов и Эмираты?? Давно они звездюлей просят, пора и получить.

    К сожалению у России кроме Ирана нет более надёжного союзника в регионе Ближнего Востока, и его можно назвать достаточно надёжным союзником на волне сильного внутреннего антиамериканизма. Всплывают ещё некоторых нехорошие подробности в отношении "соседей" с юга - евреев. Оказывается Израиль — крупнейший покупатель контрабандной нефти из Сирии и Ирака, о чем много пишут и в Израиле, и на Западе. Нефть, действительно, идет через Турцию, но завершает свой путь в Израиле. Лондонская Financial Times еще месяц назад писала, что три четверти иракской контрабандной нефти идут в Израиль. Известная арабская газета Араби аль Джадида провела подробное расследование и показала, что нефть, добытая ИГИЛ*, идет в основном в Израиль по очень выгодной цене. Российские операции в Сирии угрожают прервать эти выгодные поставки.

    Israel maintains good relations with Islamic militants. Recently, a semi-advertising article appeared in the British newspaper Daily Mail, praising the courage of Israeli fighters rescuing the wounded al-Nusra fighters ** and taking them under fire to Israel for treatment. (An-Nusra is recognized as a terrorist organization not only in the Russian Federation, but also in the UN). Israel has developed good relations with ISIS, which are recognized as the main terrorists in the region. When ISIS detachments entered the Yarmouk Palestinian refugee camp, the militants were holding lists of Palestinian activists - enemies of Israel. They were shot immediately. According to the Palestinians, ISIS received these lists from Israeli counterintelligence and complied with their request. This is all the more likely that over the entire period of the existence of ISIS, these architects have never hit Israeli or Jewish targets.

      There they all trade with each other, betray and kill! It happens that Barzani suddenly withdraws troops and cut the Yezidis! But in the place of the Jews, you think there is a difference between Heball or Isil or Hamas! For them, an ally of Tsahal, a perimeter fence, auto turrets and tight visa controls at the border! And to figure out which true believer is fraught with a mistake!

    "A significant part of the armament of Bulgarian production goes to the Syrian opposition through Turkey"

    Too often, Bulgaria began to flicker where it is necessary to arrange a dirty trick for Russia or the countries it supports. It is worth exchanging the government for pro-American and all the historical help in the years critical for the Bulgarians as never happened.

    the tsars believed in the Bulgarians, the Secretary General believed in the Bulgarians, but the Bulgarians, taught by the Khazars to tricks everyone, cheated on Fritz first person after the Russian liberation, but after agent Gorbachev there was no demand. The comrade drank many times with them the conclusion is waiting for you to get drunk themselves and then they talk about absurdities and disadvantageous offers.

    Turkey needs to throw another route for the transit of future EU residents - through Bulgaria. And to organize assistance in transporting them across the Black Sea, well, from the Crimea in order to float further.

    At the expense of possible future provocations, the site has already sounded here and there is every reason for this.
    Not so long ago on the Internet there was information about the purchase of Ukrainian weapons and ammunition ... now we have ...
    ..."23 декабря международная правозащитная организация Amnesty International объявила, что располагает информацией о причастности российских военных к гибели не менее 200 мирных граждан Сирии. Речь идет о шести случаях ракетно-бомбовых ударов, которые российские самолеты нанесли осенью в сирийских провинциях Хомс, Идлиб и Алеппо. Целью некоторых российских авиаударов, по всей видимости, были непосредственно мирные жители и гражданские объекты, поскольку удары пришлись по районам без очевидных военных целей или даже медицинских учреждений. Эти удары можно расценить как военные преступления», — говорится в докладе. В документе также упоминаются попадания ракет и бомб в жилые дома, полевой госпиталь, рынок и мечеть."... как было подчеркнуто в докладе что при этом used ammunition produced in the territory of the former Soviet Union, just like that and not otherwise.
