Hi,

apparently the contract was signed last year (December); what are your thoughts??

Politically very sensitive, I´d say!!
I wonder what the reactions will be from the West!!

Source in Dutch only, sorry.

Is this actually going through, or is this like the MiG-31 "sale" they were to have made a few years ago to Syria?

Yes sorry, the article actually mentions that!
First aircraft will be dispateched upon receipt of some kind of down payment!!

Not surprising.......
