Donat Sorokin  TASS

A number of Middle East and Southeastern Asia countries have shown interest in purchasing Russia's S-400 missile systems and talks are underway now, Russian Defense Minister Sergey Shoigu said on January 23 in the course of his visit to Vietnam.

Fomin said the Su-30 "will become the main fighter aircraft of Myanmar's air force to protect the country's territorial integrity and repel any terror threats".

Russian Federation announced the deal on January 22, the last day of a two-day official visit by Defence Minister Mr Sergey Shoigu, whose itinerary included talks in Nay Pyi Taw with Tatmadaw Commander-in-Chief Senior General Min Aung Hlaing.

Demonstrators on Saturday denounced Trump's views with colorful signs and even saltier language. Woodard urged everyone to register and vote, saying, "the 2018 midterms start now".

Shoigu and Senior General Ming Aung Hlaing also discussed ways to strengthen technological cooperation between their armed forces, including training cooperation, exchange of warship visits, and exchange of goodwill visits between the two armed forces.

The army chief thanked Russian Federation for its supportive stance on Myanmar's handling of militant attacks in Rakhine State, which has come under heavy criticism by much of the worldwide community, including the United Nations and US.

The Sukhoi Su-30 is a twin-engine, two-seater "super manoeuvrable" fighter jet manufactured by Russia's Sukhoi Aviation Corporation.

According to Fomin, more than 600 of Myanmar's military personnel are studying at Russia's higher military education institutions. "The latter includes not only the Pantsir systems, which were used in Syria, but also the S-300 and S-400 systems", the minister noted.
