Russia: Junk for influence

While the US Congress deliberates over $100 million in aid to the Lebanese army, the Russians have pledged an aid package of their own, including six helicopters and thirty-one tanks.

The aid is insignificant and unlikely to materialize. The US usually checks Russian expansion in the Middle East. It took the Russians years for Israel to approve their gift of a few APC’s to the Palestinians, and Lebanon is an even more sensitive area.
