Reports such as these bring thoughts to my mind, such as: "Why would Russia sell such items to a particularly volatile national leadership?" and "What does Russia stand to profit from such a sale?" The latter question is the somewhat easier of the two to answer. Since the fall of the Soviet Union in the early 90's the new Russian government has had diverse problems, particularly financially. A one billion dollar sale is nothing to sneeze at. However, this doesn't answer the first question, "Why?" I fully believe that to do something of this size, knowing full in advance that the news would get out, smacks of something more than financial gains. Now I am no conspiracy theorist by any means, nor do I feel myslef paranoid in anyway (these qualities obviously are up for debate), however I feel there is something more to this transaction than a billion dollar price tag. Unfortunately the question still stands, "Why?"
