Brazil, Russia in talks on air defense system

Brazilian and Russian military officials have been talking medium-range air defense systems.

The Brazilian Ministry of Defense reports the talks took place in Brazil last week and were conducted by delegations led by Brig. Gershon Machado, head of Logistics at the Ministry of Defense and Gen. Sergei Babakov, commander of the anti-aircraft missile troops of the Russian Air Force.

The talks, as well as visits to Brazilian military facilities, were "to strengthening cooperation between the two countries in the air defense sector."

"Brazil and Russia have established a series of conversations over the past few years on the Brazilian armed forces' need of a medium-range air defense system, able to engage targets flying at altitudes of up to 10,000 meters (nearly 33,000 feet)," the ministry said.

"In August this year, a Brazilian delegation was in Moscow to conduct additional assessments of the Pantsir-S1 medium altitude anti-aircraft artillery system, which could be purchased by Brazil to meet this need.

By the end of this year, another delegation is expected to visit the Russian Ministry of Defense, as part of the continuation of negotiations between the two countries on the subject."

The fear and the chaos of a missile attack in east Ukraine
Donetsk, Ukraine (AFP) Nov 24, 2014
There was a blinding flash, then complete darkness and thick clouds of dust. A missile had just hit Ivan Balabanov's house in rebel-held east Ukraine. Stunned, Ivan groped around in the pitch black to find his flashlight. His ears ringing from the explosion, he took a few seconds to regain his senses and remember what was around him. He remembered he was in one room with his daughte ... read more
