    Only one Death Star? Not to mention mere 50 nukes. You guys aren't good allies, not at all.

    It's the second half of the same page. If the document is a joke then inform the Washington Post and do us the favor of translating since not everyone can be bothered to learn your dying language.

    I thought there were no new contracts, only execution of old ones.

    Not exactly, slightly edited - with atomic bombs and death star. You version looks actually legit.

    [edit]
    Though the numbers look awfully arbitrary. Like, 100,000 AK mags and also 100,000 hand grenades. It's like someone was just writing random number of zeroes next to each item.

    Only small arms and ammunition request, no big deal.

    No, but Russia repeatedly stated that:

    1. It executes old orders and does not take new ones.
    2. It deliveries exclusively what Lavrov calls defensive weapons that can not be useful in the civil war.

    If this order is not fake, Lavrov lied all along.

    I find number 6 interesting. 200 "Vikhr" assault rifles. For those of you who don't know, the SR-3 "Vikhr" is a compact assault rifle made exclusively in Russia.



    I'm confused as to why Russia would ship SR-3s to the SAA, seeing as how any of these showing up on the battlefield would serve as 100% undeniable evidence that Russia has been arming the Syrian army. Same with those KORD machine guns.

    I'd think that if Russia were shipping arms to the SAA, they would at least be smart enough not to make it so blatantly obvious.

    It's possible that the order is real, but to me it looks a little fishy, to say the least.
