They were never fully into any stuff and we see a glimpse of the same in the new Russia as well.
And this is same Iran that refused to allow Russia to station bombers in their country to fight terrorists that were threatening Iran
Get me an official statement plz...
And deploying bombers to a foreign base to be operated from there is so simple?
Russia dont have any military base or agreement with Iran, but they do have a base in Syria - so logical question should be why they did not base their bombers in their most active/lively/stocked up base in Syria ???
Top grade ally to throw yourself on the grenade for right there :lol1
A moron who have absolutely no clue on the strategic location of Iran and its significance for Russian security will laugh a lot and loud!
Payment in advance and in full.
US dollars or gold only, none of that oil, gas, loan or credit BS
Last time they made a deal for S-300 and did an advance payment (Thats how commercial deals are done all around the world. Specifically telling you coz, you don't know this fact!) for the weapons system, the scum Medvedev (The most visible 5th column inside Russian Govt and the darling of the west! His achievements - Russo-Georgian war, Libyan Govt overthrow, War on Syria, Mistral deal etc) halted it to appease his western masters.
Iran even threatened to sue Russia for non delivery..
Of course... as soon as arms embargo expires in six months
I hope so.
Because Iran is a large market and if Russia stands firm, its 10s of billions of dollars worth of sales that Russia can gain from Iranian needs. A major boost to almost every spectrum of Russian defence industry.
Naturally Iran could have bought those goodies before embargo but that would require actually planning to fight a war plus they didn't want to upset their preferred US and EU luxury merchandise providers
Yes they did buy! Thats how Iran bought 3 x 877 subs from Russian in the 90s and then later on in the 2000s placed order for Tor and S-300.
And with the jooish oligarchs that ruled and plundered Russia throughout the 90s, there was not much hope for offensive and other high valued weaponry sales to Iran.
