freelance writer Luo International Herald Tribune Mountain love from Beijing on June 15, Russian President Dmitry Medvedev told Chinese Central Television interview, a rare person promoting their latest Su-34 fighter-bombers. As we all know, is involved in selling arms although Russia a colossal task, but it is rare to advertise to run for president, then, this “presidential arms show” in the end mean?
Russian workers “breakthrough” and aimed at China
in an interview with Chinese reporters, President Dmitry Medvedev in March frankly personally take the recalled Su – 34 aircraft experience, “This is indeed a great airplane.” Medvedev said that Russia intends to export its neighbors and other countries such aircraft, implying that also includes China. According to reports, the Su-34 Su-27 is based on research and development of “four generations and a half” combat aircraft, It retains the Su-27 air combat performance, but also focus on improving the long-range ground-to-sea combat capability, it can carry up to 7 tons of ammunition, for intercontinental precision strike, the Russian Air Force has said it will purchase 70 Su-2015 -34.
Russia to get such an advanced fighter to attract China’s desire to purchase, there is a real consideration. Not long ago, the Chinese People’s Liberation Army General Armament Department, will be led by Minister Chang Wanquan military delegation to visit three European countries, which in Russia are the warmest of welcomes. Moscow, the current hopes to resume arms exports to China of the urgent motivation comes from the financial crisis to Russia’s big hit the real economy, which is paid by enterprises from the Russian military during the first half of 2009 international exhibition booth rental substantial decline in the size of can be seen. Meanwhile, the financial crisis on some of the traditional Russian arms importing countries (such as India, Vietnam) is also a great blow, so to restore the Russian trade, still in dire straits of the Russian industry is no different in terms of timely help.
“polar bear” How many cards?
May 16 this year, “Russian newspaper” has an interview with Russia’s state arms export company, general manager of Yise gold, the businessmen to go straight points to Russia’s foreign military trade of the “crisis of prosperity . ” Russia’s foreign trade in 2008 amounted to $ 6.725 billion arms, once again set history. However, Yi Se Jin admitted that Russian arms exports and technology-intensive, but declining, while new orders were also significantly reduced, Yi Se Jin blunt talk: “I really do not want to see (Russian) arms exports in the future will fallen to the point where only the export of steel. “
Yisai problems discussed in the gold trade reflects the Russian military was very typical. It should be said for a long time, China has been a big buyer of Russian weapons. From 2001 to 2008, the Russian military trade totaled $ 16 billion total, however, which, in the Russian military exports to China total trade share is in sharp decline.
Konovalov of Russia’s strategic expert, said in the West imposed an arms embargo on China is still the case, the Russian trade will continue, but compared to 20 years ago, China’s national defense technology Reserve obviously much more well-off, strategic planning and vision are more forward-looking. In other words, Russia or come up with “press bottom” of the good things in exchange for yuan, or nothing.
However, Russian experts said the current Sino-Russian arms sales was the result of the deadlock, the main problem in Russia . According to reports, in 2005, Russia signed purchase Il-76 transport planes and Il-78 aerial tanker agreement, but after Russia said it could not fulfill the agreement on the grounds that the original production of Tashkent aircraft plant assembling aircraft lost capacity, production lines need to be relocated, so the need for new investment in equipment, the core idea was to raise the price of the aircraft. Allegedly, the Russian side proposed price increases of 30%.
In fact, these events only exposed the shortcomings of Russia’s military exports tip of the iceberg. This is not only for China, other countries also do so. Therefore, in order to restore Russia’s arms sales to China, must make greater efforts, show more sincerity, which a Chinese old saying – “solution-maker people.”
