Probably not....

They are rusting equipment. Old tanks and weapons. Most are probably outdated.

Then again, if they sell them off, we never know.

The price of a T-72 is already $125,000. Bring it down to 75,000 and suddenly you could have a bunch of people with very neat weekend offroading vehicles.

Now that would be cool.

Somethings up here?

Is Russia becoming PC?

I hope that scrap means destroy, and does not mean sell to the highest bidder or given away.

I wonder if the UN will observe this scrapping?

Here is a link to a post about Russia scraping its Bio Arsenal

its all a ploy...for either the UN or USA to pay gobs of money
to destroy the armaments the Russians are willing to list...
as being potential black-market weaponry to terrorists.

the Russians are playing the world for suckers,
getting their enemy to shoulder the cost of the partial disarmament
