The sound is increasing in the west about the $3 billion that Ukraine has to pay Russia in December. They dont want Ukraine to pay the money.

Re: West Asia News and Discussions

Iran must have supplied the anti aircraft missiles long ago. Without those you are always vulnerable to western aggression.

In Ukraine, the militia shot down a couple of planes and that was the end of use of airpower by the Poroshenko Junta.
