    Wow,really?
    And who has much money now?
    Didn't you forget something?Russia instead of France forgave a lot of financial debts to poor countries.

    Russia has supplied military equipment and/or technical assistance to China, India, Pakistan, Iran, North Korea, Venezuela, Vietnam and Libya - and these are the ones we know about. If rumours are to be believed, it also sold stuff to Iraq.

    Russia has embraced CAPITALISM.

    Isn't that what the West wanted from Russia?

    Of course, it doesn`t hurt if Russia`s goals coincide with those it arms.

    I'm not saying it's bad for Russia to sell its stuff. I'm merely saying that Russia helping India to build a nuclear submarine isn't a big deal at all - it's been selling its military skills, technology and arms for decades.

    Russia could have also sold some fantastic arms to Iran (like S-300, S-400, perhaps the likes of PAK-FA, Su-35, MiG-35 etc) if it wanted to.

    Also I don't know what happened but Mr Putin did visit Saudi Arabia for some good deals I suppose. I guess Saudi Arabia never got interested in Russian tanks or Armoured Personnel Carriers.

    Russia is truly a global powerhouse in weapons technology.
