    Sounds like a waste of money to poke America, for little tangible return.

    We do not have the luxury of bases abroad at this point, not in freakin Argentina.
    Not when the armed forces are mostly mounted on vehicles designed in the 70s an produced in the 80s.

    They will likely be interested in buying new equipment... for years the US has basically told the whole region what they can or cannot have.

    More importantly this is not just a poke at the US... what happens when Su-35s start flying around the Malvinas...????

    On a more serious note having global receiving stations that can pick up and monitor GLONASS signals will make them much more accurate and allow easier maintainence.

    It will also offer a flying off point to support Russian operations in Antarctica...

    And you can probably pay for it by upgrading some Mig-23s with new radar and R-77 missiles.

    Their pilots in 1982 proved to be very brave and skillful... they just lacked a decent air to air missile... and a decent fighter.

    ... in any event trade will be good for both countries...

    A shame. A naval base in Argentina would have been less provocative than a similar base in Venezuela or Cuba - that are far too close to the US mainland for US comfort and also far too vulnerable to attack; while at the same time roughly equidistant from both of Russia's main fleets (Northern and Pacific), being at the far point of both fleet's ranges - it would be ideal as a logistics/resupply base.
    Of course maintaining a permanent presence there is pointless though. It should be more like Tartus.
    And China should share it too.

    Anyway I wouldn't discount it just yet. Floating a piece of information and then immediately denying it is a regular tactic.

    Argentina has just stepped up in Russia's defence on the Crimean issue, and I wouldn't call it a co-incidence.

    Argentina will probably expect Russia to back it up in the Falkland islands dispute. Too bad because the Falkland islands really are British, whatever way you spin it. But politics is politics. Seeing as how Britain has inevitably aligned against Russia in this episode and the upcoming energy and defense ties are now probably a thing of the past - Russia has little to lose I suppose.

    You mean like the US is British?

    Or like Kosovo is Serbian?

    For all their bravado regarding respecting the rights of British descended people in Falklands to have a voice they don't seem to feel the same way about the people of Guam... or the Crimea, or indeed South Ossetia or Abkhazia...

    Why not wind up the Brits... it is not like they will ever be Russias best friend and you might get a useful trade partner.

    In the worst case for central and south america the US might start treating them better to get their favour back...

    Russia Strengthens Military Bases Abroad – Defense Minister

    MOSCOW, May 23 (RIA Novosti) – Russia is strengthening its military bases abroad as well as helping to boost the armed forces of the Collective Security Treaty Organization (CSTO) and the Shanghai Cooperation Organization (SCO), Russian Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu said Friday.

    “In recent years, we have worked to strengthen the Russian military bases in Tajikistan and Kyrgyzstan: we have increased the number of air defense units at the Kant airbase [in Kyrgyzstan], and the 201st base now has a divisional structure,” Shoigu said at a security conference in Moscow.

    The International Security Conference began in Moscow Friday for the third time. The event is being attended by military experts and government officials from a number of countries, including China, Belarus, Iran, Egypt, Syria, Iraq and Serbia.

    Defense ministers or deputy ministers from the member countries of the CSTO and SCO are also planning to attend the conference. Two panel discussions are expected: “The Search for Ways to Stabilize the Situation in the Middle East and North Africa” and “Afghanistan and Regional Security.”

    European Union, US and NATO representatives, critical of Russia's actions in Ukraine, refused to participate in the event.

    Russia to keep developing foreign military bases — defense minister

    MOSCOW, October 28. /TASS/. Russia will actively keep developing its military bases abroad, Russian Defense Minister, Army General Sergey Shoigu said Tuesday.

    “We keep developing our bases abroad: in Kyrgyzstan, Tajikistan, Armenia. We are developing them rather actively,” Shoigu said at a meeting of the Public Council under the Defense Ministry.

    He recalled that recently a Russian squadron went on combat duty in Belarus.

    “We settled there and started combat duty and everything connected with training,” Shoigu said.

    I smell Cyprus has joined the Greek game and has decided to break the EU's balls by threatening to move closer to Russia, in order to gain a better negotiating position for the haggling over loans, bankrupkt banks and economic issues.

    Which can only be good, even though they're likely not serious about the proposal to Russia. In any case they're still harming the EU; by breaking the myth/illusion of unity in Europe and weakening the power of Brussels over its vassals.
    We're now already seeing 2 of the peripheries invoking Russia in order to gain more leverage against the centre.. how many more will there be? Will Orban join the game next?

    Of course, if the EU decides to call Greece's and Cyprus's bluffs.. they might just move closer to Russia for real.

    Not exactly. Cyprus plays the Russian card in order to push USA and Britain to take more favorable position in UN voting. Just rumors, nothing will be done and Russia in no way is going to start a confrontation for Cyprus against Britain which has already 2 military bases there

    But you forget the banking crisis, and how Cyprus financiers got snubbed by EU and America, and don't forget the only reason why Northern Cyprus is occupied by Turkey is because the Atlantacist's (Anglo-Saxon supremacist America and Great Britain) backed, supported with logistics for the Neo-Ottoman/Grey Wolf invasion with their full support. The Greek diaspora can only be the Anglo-Saxon's whipping boy for so long.

    Υes but when Cyprus leadership asked Russia for help in March 2013, Putin answered them to recieve aid from IMF (and Russia is a member of IMF). Smile
    Left wing communist president also D.Christofias during his term 2008-2013 had publicly stated that he didnt receive positive response from Russia or China and characterized these countries as "communicating vessels" with the western economic powers

    Meanwhile Greece is in NATO, the entity that backed and supported the invasion of Northern Cyprus, the same Greece that was bullied by Turkey and NATO to agree to get rid of the Cypriot inventory of S-300's, which was a true game-changing trump card against the Turks...so what your saying really doesn't cut the mustard. As far as the claims of the last president, the whole bailout scheme was a financial attack on Russian wealth stored in Cyprus where Russian wealth was destroyed as one of the pre-conditions for the bailout (a indirect attack on Russia for supporting Assad in Syria). The fact that so much Russian wealth was destroyed, combined with the fact the Cyprus was a likely spearhead launch pad for NATO attack on Syria (which they would likely coordinate with the Turks) was more than enough reason for Russia to give Cyprus the cold-shoulder. Had the last president actually followed through with his promise to shut down the UK bases like he promised than Russia would of likely helped Cyprus with a generous loan.

    BTW where you do get off blaming Russia for the lack of unity? The European Orthodox sphere is the one that betrayed Russia, not the other way around. For all the centuries Russia defended Orthodox Christians from the Ottomans, but in return how many Orthodox European countries are now in NATO and above all allied with the Grey Wolf Neo-Ottoman Turkey (which stationed Jupiter missiles towards Russia at one point), led by Caliph Erdogan? You have the likes of Orthodox Christian Romania (alongside Russia) was a country that has one of the longest histories fighting the Ottoman's, but now (the Romanians) are extremely hostile and Russophobic, and also allied with Turkey (despite their history) both having ABM's directed towards Russia (for a potential first strike option by NATO). Where's the Orthodox brotherhood and unity here? With friends like that who needs enemies? How about Greece leave NATO and Cyprus close all their NATO bases first, then let's talk?

    i didnt blame russia, i just say that Russia support russian interests and i find it logic like USA and other powers do. No cold, no hot for me. Not negative but not positive. Concerning The European Orthodox sphere, this says nothing to me. There wasnt ever any Orthodox military alliance and during cold war that NATO was created only Greece was officialy orthodox in Europe. USSR didnt promote Orthodox solidarity i guess

    The Orthodox sphere had a military alliance, it was called the Byzantine Empire, which was destroyed by the oligarchical financiers and merchants of Venice, through the historic betrayal known as the '4th Crusade'. Guess which European country follows the same exact geo-stragic manipulation methodology of the Venetians?

    How the Venetian System Was Transplanted Into England

    The whole collapse of Orthodox sphere was a consequence of WW1, a war created by the British to weaken Germany and Russia (historic allies against Britain) by pitting them against each other, Orthodox unity was exhausted after WW1 (due to the casualties sustained on the Russian side), which led to Marxism prevailing. So instead of just figting the Ottomans alone, Anglophile agents in St.Petersburg convinced Russia to fight Germany, which ultimately left the Russian people estranged to ideas of Orthodox brotherhood:

    King Edward VII of Great Britain: Evil Demiurge of the Triple Entente and World War 1

    Another aspect of the collapse of the Orthodox sphere was that Karl Marx was an agent of British intelligence. The only reason why people know who Karl Marx is was because he was supported and propped up by none other than David Urquhart, the head of the British Foreign Office, and the most influential Russophobe in Europe. His spiritual successor is none other than the infamous Zbignew Brzezinski.

    How interesting that Urquhart should be the controller of British agent Karl Marx, who earns his keep as a writer for Urquhart’s paper. David Urquhart is the founder of modern communism! It is Urquhart who will prescribe the plan for “Das Kapital.” Marx is a professed admirer of Urquhart – acknowledging his influence more than that of any other living person. Marx will even compose a “Life of Lord Palmerston,” based on Urquhart’s wild obsession that Pam is a Russian agent of influence. This says enough about Marx’s acumen as a political analyst. Marx and Urquhart agree that there is no real absolute profit in capitalism, and that technological progress causes a falling rate of profit.

    Lord Palmerston’s Multicultural Human Zoo

    Just like Zbignew, Urquhart loved to demonize Russia and usually praised Islamic imperialism:

    He (David Urquhart) secured a post at the British Embassy in Constantinople and “went native,” becoming an Ottoman pasha in his lifestyle. Urquhart’s positive contribution to civilization was his popularization of the Turkish bath. He also kept a harem for some time. Urquhart also thought that late Ottoman feudalism was a model of what civilization ought to be. In Turkey, Urquhart became convinced that all the evil in the world had a single root: Russia, the machinations of the court of St. Petersburg.

    Issue of opening Russian airbase in Belarus being discussed — Kremlin

    Russian President Vladimir Putin last month instructed the Defense Ministry and Foreign Ministry to enter negotiations with Minsk and to sign an agreement on creating a Russian airbase in Belarus

    MOSCOW, October 28. /TASS/. The issues of stationing a Russian air base in Belarus is being discussed, Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov said on Wednesday.

    "We have a rather broad agenda [with Belarus] on military-technical cooperation, cooperation in the spheres of security and defense. In the context of our alliance, these issues will be discussed in some form," Peskov said answering a question on whether the topic of opening a Russian military base in Belarus is being discussed. "I cannot say anything concrete for now," he added.

    Russian President Vladimir Putin last month instructed the Defense Ministry and Foreign Ministry to enter negotiations with Belarus and to sign an agreement on creating a Russian airbase in the country’s territory. As the Russian government said earlier, the agreement would contribute to establishing a joint defense of the Union State’s border in the air space and to create an integral regional air defense system of Russia and Belarus.

    Putin orders Russian Armed Forces to stop using Emba training range

    The Emba training range is located in the Aktobe Region in Kazakhstan

    MOSCOW, July 7. /TASS/. Russian President Vladimir Putin has approved a draft protocol on halting the use of the Emba training range in Kazakhstan by Russia’s Armed Forces and ordered to sign it, according to the relevant order posted on the government’s legal information website.

    The protocol terminates the 1995 Russian-Kazakh agreement on the use of the Emba training range (test support base No. 5580) and the 1996 Russian-Kazakh agreement on the lease of this training range.

    The Russian president instructed "to accept the governmental proposal to sign this protocol and entrust Russia’s Defense and Foreign Ministries to hold talks with Kazakhstan in order to sign the protocol on behalf of Russia upon reaching the agreement," according to the presidential order.

    The Emba training range is located in the Aktobe Region in Kazakhstan 200 kilometers (124 miles) southward of Aktobe.

    The training range was set up in 1960 to carry out research work, test advanced military hardware and air defense systems and hold air defense live-firing exercises.

    As Russian Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu said earlier, "we agreed to draft a protocol on the Emba training range to continue this work. Thus, another over 300,000 hectares will be returned to Kazakhstan’s national economy."

    Russian Defense Ministry may return to foreign bases of USSR times

    The ministry considers the option to return military bases to the countries, where they were in the Soviet Union times, including Vietnam or Cuba

    MOSCOW, October 7. /TASS/. Russia's Defense Ministry considers the option to return military bases to the countries, where they were in the Soviet Union times, Deputy Defense Minister Nikolai Pankov told the State Duma legislators.

    "We are working on this, we do see this problem," he said in response to a question whether the military authority planned to return to the bases in the countries like Vietnam or Cuba.

    Earlier, Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu said Russian plans developing military bases abroad, including Kyrgyzstan, Tajikistan, Armenia.

    President Vladimir Putin in summer, 2014 said Moscow did not have plans to restore its base in Cuba’s Lourdes.
    Bases in Latin America, Southeast Asia, Africa

    The deputy chairman of the State Duma’s international affairs committee, Aleksey Chepa, has called for restoring Russian military bases in Latin America, Southeast Asia and Africa.

    He came out with this initiative at a session of the lower house while discussing the issue of ratifying the Russian-Syrian agreement on the open-ended deployment of Russia’s air group in Syria.

    "It is necessary to consider the issue of our presence in other regions of the world," Chepa said. "I believe that it would meet Russia’s national interests to restore our military bases in Latin America, Southeast Asia and Africa."

    On Friday, October 7, the Russian State Duma considers ratification of an agreement on termless deployment of the Russian air grouping in Syria. The document was signed on August 26, 2015 in Damascus, and on August 9, 2016, President Vladimir Putin presented it to the parliament’s lower house for further consideration.
