I saw demostration from this very modern and well build helicopter, I think this deal is good for Iraq and Russia.
I am proud and happy for this Russia and the government. I am not Russian, but feel Russian. I love this country and will visit again soon. I see so much progress and believe that Russia will be No.1 in the world for a long time. Viva Putin and Medvedev

US was probably trying to block the deal for business reasons but Russia gives more value for money
