THE US IS READY TO PAY COUNTRIES FOR THEIR REFUSAL OF RUSSIAN WEAPONS

This is written by journalists of the newspaper «Defence One». The publication noted that earlier such assistance was extended only to the countries of Eastern Europe, which were part of the Warsaw Pact.
The essence of the program of the Americans is that Washington is ready to pay for the refusal of the Soviet and Russian equipment already in service and its further purchases, and in return, they demand to buy weapons of American production.
«According to the program, the participating States intend to abandon Russian weapons and begin to acquire weapons of American production,» — said the representative of us State Department.
Recall that in 2019, the United States budgeted 190 million dollars of assistance to six countries. For example, Slovakia received $ 50 million for the purchase of American helicopters, while Croatia received $ 25 million for BMP.
