 Despite the US threat of sanctions, Indonesia still wants to buy Russian Soviet 35 fighters


Russian developed Su-35 fighter

Earlier, the U.S. President Trumps administration forced Indonesia to abandon the deal, according to a report quoted by sources. In 2018, Indonesia and Russia signed a Su-35 contract with a total value of more than US $1 billion, stipulating the supply of 11 of the fighters.

According to supriyadi, Indonesias ambassador to Russia, the deal is still valid and the deal continues..

He also said that as an independent country, Indonesia has the right to buy military technical equipment from the desired party. We understand that a certain country is worried, but we are an independent country and have purchased military technical equipment from many countries, he said. We can buy from the United States, Europe and Russia. Thats the decision we should make.

In addition, supriyadi also said that Indonesias Ministry of defense is considering the possibility of buying Russian Mi-17 helicopters.
