    Filipino-Russian Arms Trade

    Post  Tingsay on Sat Nov 11, 2017 3:53 am

    Russia to be PH’s new source for weapons — Duterte

    The Filipino Trump talks a lot with very little action (barring his drug war). So, we're gonna have to wait and see how things turn out.

    The Philippines have expressed interest in a number of Russian weapons through out the entire year, from Kilos to Gepards to Sukhois and small arms.

    Meanwhile, Putin seeks stronger ties between PH, Russia

    Putin is making moves in the Philiipines, he plans to:
    - Build a new Railway Line (Baguio City).
    - Construct a repair facility for Russian ships that visit the country.
    - Appoint a Military Attache to be based in Manila.
    - Increase trade by importing Fish, Fruit and other Seafood from the Philippines while selling Grain and Meat to the Philippines.

    Improved trade would help both countries, sounds like a win win... especially as it does not seem to be only about weapons.

    That's how it starts. They build trade relations, Russia invests, then Philippines purchase Russian goods and weapons..

    This is good news.
