Russia Dismisses Rumors of Seeking Military Base in Argentina as 'Provocative Lie'© RIA Novosti. Ruslan Krivobok
MOSCOW, March 26 (RIA Novosti) – The Russian Foreign Ministry on Wednesday dismissed as a “provocative lie” rumors of Moscow’s plans to build a military base in Argentina.
“We were surprised to see reports circulated on the Internet alleging that Russia is planning to open a military base in Argentina,” spokesman Alexander Lukashevich said in a statement.
“This provocative lie would not be worth our comments if not for the accompanying speculations on how Russia is going to develop relations with Argentina in the future,” the statement said.

- R.Deus-von HomeyerRE:PUTIN's NEW BEDFELLOW!20:43, 26/03/2014So...PUTIN found a new bed-fellow ...Christina DE KIRSCNER.
The word"Kirsche" in German means a cherry...so....she is the ARISTOCRAT of the cherries....HaHaHaaaaaaaaaaaa.
Christina is upset with the WEST,because Argentina STILL did not HONOR her obligations to the Hedge Funds,from which Argentina borrowed in the 80thies.
She can not compare KRUIM with the MALVINAS! The Malvinas were NEVER an Argentinian territory...they always were part of the UK.
- R.Deus-von HomeyerRE:DO NOT CRY FOR ME ,ARGENTINA!18:09, 27/03/2014Last night I read an article about Argentina...the slow,but steady downfall of this country.
Now I do not wonder,when Francesco,an Argentian friend told me recently:"Why do you want to come to Buenos Aires? You will not miss anything ,if you do not come!"
Christina DE KIRCHNER( I was kidding yesterday and on purpose misspelled her name) tries to deviate the attention of her country people by pointing at the lost ARCHIPELAGO of the paradise islands MALVINAS!
Instead she should bother about the Argentinian economy! She increased the import taxes;the finance industry is in chaos and do you remember WHY the Argentinian farmers were trowing their harvest in front of Christina's Palace?
Becuase she started taxing also the the inland sales of the farmers.
So...Putin should not take the path of the Argentinian puchists(the Military Junta was on power in Argentina for decades).
Christina de KIRCHNER aplied at the UNO to devate the issue of the Malvinas,therefore she is seeing in Putin a potential supporter as Russia is in the Security Councel of UN.
Earlier this month, Russia hosted the Fourth International Meeting of the Arctic Council at Naryan-Mar, a seaport in the Barents Sea, to discuss issues relating to the infrastructure and safety of ships passing through the Northern Sea Route (NSR).
