    Fuck Turkey.

    When Russia sells Iskander missiles to Armenia, it's okay. However, When Turkey sells UAV's to Ukraine, Oh! İts'a huge problem! We should drop some nukes on Turkey!

    Ukrainian Army is using Russian/Soviet made arms to fight against Pro-Russian forces in Donbass. I think, You need to worry about Russian made weapons in the hands of Ukrainian Army, rather than Turkish made UAV's. Because Ukrainian army is full of Russian made weapons. Maybe Russia should drop an atomic bomb on its territory for selling these weapons to Ukraine?

    Armanians aren't actively killing Turks dumbass.  Only ones who faced a genocide by Turks are Armenians. So stop playing victim.

    Plus you seem to fail to graps difference between Soviet gear and Russian. Ukraine uses Soviet gear.

    Russia sells weapons to almost anyone... even Saudi Arabia... they are hardly in a position to throw stones.

    I don't think Turkey is more guilty of such things as any other "partner" the Russians have.

    The UK and US go out of their way to finance and support those that will do harm to Russia and Russian interests... I think they are more of a problem than Turkey.

    I think Turkey could become a useful and powerful ally to Russia, and I think Russian gas going to Turkey and then on to Europe gives Turkey a lot of leverage over the EU, and will earn them a lot in transit fees alone.

    The Ukraine was going to buy UAVs... whether Turkey sells them or Israel or whoever else does is not really that important... Turkey should make sure the cheque clears before handing over any hardware.

    I am sure the Russians will find those UAVs interesting to examine and dissect.

    Actually it would probably be much more useful to use one of their jammers and see if they can knock one down electronically so they can get a look at one... but of course claim publicly that they are unreliable and had some sort of system failure and that is why it crashed.

    If you can bring them down you don't want them to know that...

    Verbas would be overkill... they should send them to me... Smile

    Nikolai Vorobiev, the director of the #Ukraine's "Antonova" #HALE UAV project said, "we are developing the HALE #UAV with a foreign country. They will provide the electronic parts and bombs"

    Good... they are armed... so easy to justify shooting them down in numbers on sight.
