Defense Minister Shoigu to Push Russian Arms Sales in Brazil, Peru

News | 09.10.2013 | 10:50
 

Russian Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu will depart next week on a four-day trip to Brazil and Peru to promote the sales of Russian weaponry to these countries, the Kommersant daily reported Wednesday.

The success of Shoigu’s talks with Brazilian and Peruvian counterparts will significantly boost Russia’s chances to sell military equipment worth at least $1.7 billion, the paper said citing a source in the Russian General Staff.

The Russian delegation, led by Shoigu, will first visit Brazil to discuss the sales of Pansir-S1 and Igla missile systems, which the Brazilians believe could become a key element of air defenses during the upcoming 2014 FIFA World Cup Brazil.

The Pantsir-S, produced by Russia's KBP, is a gun-missile system combining a wheeled vehicle mounting a fire-control radar and electro-optical sensor, two 30-mm cannons and up to 12 57E6 radio-command guided short-range missiles, and is designed to take on a variety of targets flying at low altitudes.

 

The Igla is a Russian man-portable infrared homing surface-to-air missile.

The potential Brazilian deal is estimated at $1 billion, the Kommersant said.

In Peru, Shoigu will push the sales of 110 T-90S main battle tanks and the same number of BTR-80A armored personnel carriers in a deal worth about $700, according to the paper.

Russia left a prototype T-90S tank in Lima for trials by the Peruvian military, following its participation there in the SITDEF Peru 2013 arms exhibition in May.

Peru currently operates around 300 obsolete Soviet-made T-55 tanks, which Lima wants to replace with T-90S.

In addition, the Peruvian military has expressed interest in buying new air defense systems to replace Soviet-era Pechora (SA-3 Goa) systems, the Kommersant said.

Case of Hugo Carvajal: Provocation on Aruba Island

The United States has started to avoid the burden of looking for evidence in case it wants to accuse someone of criminal activities. In recent years the US has become accustomed to ignore legal responsibility. The pretext of fighting terrorists has been used to allow detaining «potential criminals», putting them into secret jails and using cruel torture to get confession. The whole US security system has been affected. The leaders of American special services have got accumulated the experience of detaining (legally or not) people abroad and bringing them into the United States to make face trial. But there are failures suffered on the way and lessons to be learnt...
