It is obvious that this is the reward for US and EE countries to lift the sanctions. They also want to make business with Iran. But on the other side Russia definitely has the biggest potential in military market of Iran
No it doesn't. Iran will give nothing to Russia. Maybe a few tanks purchased, maybe some air defense systems. But they will turn to US for fighter jets due to their current fleet of aircrafts are American mostly. Russia doesn't need the money for the defense industry as much as it needs for its civil industries. And it had a great chance for SSJ-100 in iran. Now that is pretty much gone. There is still a chance since Iran needs apparently 500 new aircrafts for its air carriers, but chance of Russia getting the money is pretty much nill.
Russia should be getting rewards for its god damn hard work put into lifting sanctions on Iran. If I was Russia, I would tell Iran where they can go, and sanction them entirely as well. Screw them. They used Russia and Russia got what out of it? US is still threatening more sanctions and already still said sanctions will be in place.
Iran sells their mothers to the devil for nothing. Go figure. I hope Iranians are happy with such a decision. Russians should be storming the Kremlin over such retarded policies as it is now going to cost Russia's economy even more (Iran will eventually flood the European market in oil and Gas and Russia will lose even more. This will cost Russia's economy and will cost Russians themselves, and all thanks to their policies.
