Russia, Fiji ink military-technical agreement

16:30 June 28, 2013 RBTH Asia

Russia and Fiji have signed a military-technical and a visa-free travel agreements on Friday, as well as accords to combat money laundering and terrorism financing, and to cooperate in the health and educational sectors.

The agreements were signed after talks between Fiji’s Prime Minister Voreqe Bainimarama's and his Russian counterpart Dmitry Medvedev. 

Bainimarama, who is also a military officer, is leading the first government's delegation to Moscow, designed to boost trade and investment opportunities.

"Since Fiji is an insular state in the ocean, naval hardware is obvious its first necessity. The Fijian Navy's gunboats are not Russian-made. We will offer the Fijian Navy a wide choice of gunboats - small, medium and large - and we are prepared to offer equipment and combat gear to the land troops and peacekeepers," Alexander Fomin, director of the Federal Military-Technical Cooperation Service, was quoted by Interfax as saying.

Fomin and the Fijian ambassador to Russia signed an intergovernmental agreement on military-technical cooperation earlier on Friday, in parallel with the Federal Financial Monitoring Service (Rosfinmonitoring) and its partner agency in the Fijian financial intelligence service, Russian and Fijian health ministries, the Far East Federal University and the National University of Fiji.

Fiji and the Soviet Union established diplomatic relations in 1974.

Hello , greetings from Karanoyameisk , Chutkotka Autonomous Okrug , directly North of your Taveuni Island in Russian Far East ...I notice Russian biznizmeni have been dealing with Fijian government over the past month ..Well, You must realise that biznis in Russia is dominated by people with often shady past ..they have been very able to do the bizniz with the Soviet government under Soviet rule . When Soviet break up and the svoloch Gorbachev leave , then these high places criminals and their puppets swapped communist uniform for capitalkist uniform , and there was no rulz in Russia in the 1990s and even today to an extent . They pick up Norilski Nickel in Krasnoyarsk Krai for 170 million dollar American , it will be worth 5 billion at time ..Rusal was bought as well by same type of biznizmeni . It is very difficult to know where Russian biznis end and criminal begin ...Also , When Soviet break up we loose our town Lilitin close chukotka lose half its people as Moscow close our torn down look google earth .

OK back to Subject , the bosses of many of Russias companies have ties to our long established underworld , what we call vor v zakone or the thieves in law , that their own rules . The law in Russian Federation makes you as a politician immune from any action whilst you are in duma . Same in any respubliki and Oblast duma . If you want see our Russian biznizmeny in action , go cyprus , iceland , and you will see the countries are hooked on Russian money and Russia bizniz . Israel is da same too except that Israel has bizniz law stup monguz bizniz . Mean Russia look new country . Ask yourselves , Has there been any large russia corporation looking for opportunity to build casino or resort or exploit mineral in Fiji ? There is pattern my dear Freinds .

I would ask you to look up for youselves Russian bizniz and vor v zakone on internet if you are find it hard to beliv what I say .
