    MOSCOW, April 15 (RIA Novosti) The Russian Defense Ministry has signed a $470 million contract with the MiG corporation for the delivery of 16 advanced MiG-29 SMT fighters, the ministry said Tuesday.
    The company had earlier confirmed the deal in an interview with RIA Novosti, but did not specify its value.
    "The value of the contract, including the ground support and test equipment, is more than 17 billion rubles. The contract is a strategic measure for maintaining the combat readiness of the lightweight fighter fleet," the Defense Ministry said in the statement.
    29 million per plane would mean that they are new built frames.

    especially for you Austin as a fan of GDP

    The Ministry of economic development has prepared a forecast, in which the RF GDP growth in 2015 will reach 9.8 percent

    So that the economy could pull the tasks set by Putin in elections next year, investments in fixed capital should increase by 31%

    Say out-of-the-box idea but not necessarily impossible. GDP growth is always function of investments. Now all economical-and-political factors have changed. Liberasty who hampered Russia's economy are removed from elites, not necessarily slowly but surely. Just couple precision strikes on HSE and mission completed

    As for currency reveres in EURO or USD? why? maybe ruble with gold parity?

    Maybe finally it's time to sell USD and invest in own economy? USD might be not really needed anymore since for any exported goods (inclusive energy resources) gold, rubles or rather altnys will be accepted?
    anyway Pozhyviom, uvidim

    The best options for Russian post this situation specially wrt US is to dump USD as Reserve Currency and Mode of Payment for Oil Trade and stick with Euro , Yuan and Gold ....... most certainly China Currency has reached a level where it can be termed as Reserve Currency and the Trading Base between both countries means they can significantly increase the Currency Base and Trading base in Yuan.

    Gold is something they must keep increasing which the Central Bank of Russia is doing so as with the end of QE .... there is a good chance that US Stocks Bubble and Economy itself will collapse as it happened in 2008 .....atleast most Economist are betting it would happen.

    Russia has nothing to worry in long run it holds the resource card and paper money holds no value not with the lack of economic and monetary discipline thats it turned into.

    Interesting times ahead ....but lets leave the Economic Discussion here else we might be accused of something
