Helicopters to Lebanon

BEIRUT — Russia will provide the Lebanese army with free helicopters, tanks and munitions in a deal that will boost the country’s poorly equipped military, officials said Tuesday.

Lebanese Prime Minister Saad Hariri said in a statement that the aid includes six helicopters, 31 tanks, 130 mm caliber cannon shells and about half a million different munitions for medium-sized weapons and artillery shells.

The statement, which followed Hariri’s talks in Moscow with Prime Minister Vladimir Putin on Tuesday, did not say when the aid would be delivered.

… we have a small favor to ask. As you may have heard, The Moscow Times, an independent news source for over 30 years, has been unjustly branded as a "foreign agent" by the Russian government. This blatant attempt to silence our voice is a direct assault on the integrity of journalism and the values we hold dear.

We, the journalists of The Moscow Times, refuse to be silenced. Our commitment to providing accurate and unbiased reporting on Russia remains unshaken. But we need your help to continue our critical mission.
