Russia to Send 20 New Jet Fighters to Bolivia
Russia is expected to deliver 20 new jet fighters to Bolivia if a contract with the Bolivian Defense Ministry is signed.
Bolivian Defense Minister Reymi Ferreira said: "We need two flotillas of 10 aircraft each. We are talking about 20 jet fighters. We have already received five offers from Brazil, France, Russia and Argentina. However, it does not mean we will choose among them."
The amount of the contract has not been reported. The jet fighters are planned to be used to intercept drug trafficking across the borders of Bolivia.
