To all those Putin pom pom cheerleaders out there who like posting pics of him bare chested riding a bear while Obummer rides a weeny bicycle in mom pants, the former KGB apparatchik is not a friend of you or I. He means to destabilize the West (and is doing so) any which way he can, even if it means supporting islamonazis in Iran or terrorists elsewhere, while he clamps down on them domestically.
True to Tehran: Russian Loan Reflects ‘Mutually Beneficial Partnership’
Russia’s move to provide a 2.5-billion-euro loan to Iran indicates that even anti-Russian sanctions cannot stop Moscow from expanding its economic ties with its southern partner, Omid Shokri Kalehsar, a US-based Iranian energy expert, told Sputnik.
In an interview with Sputnik, Omid Shokri Kalehsar, a US-based Iranian energy expert, heaped praise on Russia for providing Iran with a 2.5-billion-euro loan, which he said reflects Moscow’s drive to bolster economic relations with Tehran in the face of anti-Russian sanctions.
The interview came a few days after Russia’s Deputy Finance Minister Sergey Storchak said that Moscow is ready to loan Tehran up to 2.5 billion euros for infrastructure projects.
Kalehsar recalled that Moscow is currently constructing a bridge to link the Crimean Peninsula with mainland Russia, a 4.5-billion-dollar project which is being implemented amid sanctions that the EU, the US and other countries slapped on Russia.
“But in spite of this, Russia is ready to take the most difficult and important decisions, including on the issue of granting a hefty loan to Iran. In any case, everything is based on a mutually beneficial partnership with both parties due to get their desired benefits,” Kalehsar said.
