President Barack Obama, Commander-in-Chief of the US Armed Forces, is defending the rights of Russian arms dealers. He does not plan to sanction them, as requested by the Pentagon.
The Voice of Russia reports that, "The Pentagon has signaled that it doesn't want the US sanctions against Russia over Ukraine to include Russia's state-owned arms exporting firm Rosoboronexport as that would mean a halt to supplies of Russian MI-17 helicopters for the Afghan Air Force under a US-Russian deal, the Christian Science Monitor newspaper reports."
Obama is saying "Yes we can" to Russian arms dealers.
As reported by the Voice of Russia, "But Pentagon officials have been asking congressmen to hold off on these measures, because Rosoboronexport also supplies the helicopters used by the struggling Afghan Air Force, the newspaper says, citing Senate sources."
US Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel agrees with Obama on this topic.
