This will be a very big mistake. U.N MUST STOP THIS

All this as we shamelessly refurbish cold war relics!

Good thing to counter the West’s dominance

iran is becoming powerful day by day. unfortunate they are using power to sponsor terror

When I hear of one strengthening the present Iranian regime, I shudder. Yes miltary sell of weapons is an individual’s country decision but one must think twice before they make a decision. Iranians as individuals are good hearted people but the present ideology that runs their nation has damaged their reputation. Russia should know that it is predominantly Christian and extremists turning against them is in a matter of seconds. When these people mess up their countries they run to Christian nations only to turn against the very host nations that helped to host them. They carry no gratitute in their hearts but believe Christians are their shoes if not gumboots to enable them wade through their problems.
