#2 Cuber still has a Russ gun at their head. Debts not forgive, fighting hard over how the debt should be denominated, old rubles, new rubles or Bolivars (LOL not really I made that one up).

#4 Y'know, for a bunch of commies and "ex" commies the Russians are pretty good at squeezing money out of poor people in the third world.

#5 Tupolev Tu-204 is the Russian equivalent of a B757. The Il-96 is a wide-body plane. Neither is exactly setting the commercial aviation world on fire.

#6 Iff the Cold War is any measure, Quba's debt is notsomuch "forgiven" as temporarily "set aside" as per bilateral concessions.

Despite the Chinese being back at Gwadar, I'm sure IRAN would still like a Russian fleet close-by - ANY CHANCE OF MILACTION AGZ IRAN'S NUCPROGS BY THE US-ALLIES IS GETTING MORE DIFFICULT BY THE HOUR.

Rantburg was assembled from recycled algorithms in the United States of America. No trees were destroyed in the production of this weblog. We did hurt some, though. Sorry.
