    Russian ambassador: Bolivia helicopter purchase a 'first step' toward broader ties

    LA PAZ, Bolivia -- Bolivia's plan to purchase five Russian civil defense helicopters is a "first step" in deepening ties between the two countries as Russia looks to expand its role across Latin America, Russia's top diplomat in Bolivia said Tuesday.
    Ambassador Leonid Golubev told The Associated Press that he would like to see Russia's ties to Bolivia one day "approach the level" of its growing partnership with Venezuela, which will host the Russian navy for military exercises in the Caribbean later this year.

    "We want to show the United States that Latin America is not their backyard," Golubev said. "We also have interests in various spheres, including military ones."

    The ambassador expressed "great satisfaction" at the recent rise of Bolivian President Evo Morales and other "socialist-oriented" governments across Latin America.

    "This creates a favorable opportunity for us to return to Latin America, to help and to cooperate," he said.

    With the exception of its long ties to Cuba, Russia has been largely absent from Latin America since the end of the Cold War.

    But in recent years it has deepened ties with Venezuela, whose leftist president, Hugo Chavez, has signed deals for more than US$4.4 billion worth of Russian arms since 2005. Chavez visited Moscow last week to secure another US$1 billion in credit for the purchase of Russian weaponry.

    A price has not yet been set for Bolivia's purchase of the five helicopters, Golubev said. Morales has sought the aircraft to improve Bolivia's emergency response to frequent floods across the country's lowland east.

    The purchase would be a "first step: Buy the five helicopters and see how things go," Golubev said. "You can't do everything at once."

    He said Bolivia also inquired about purchasing another two helicopters for its anti-narcotics efforts _ traditionally run in cooperation with the United States.

    Bolivia expelled U.S. anti-drug programs from the country earlier this year, and the U.S. placed Bolivia on its anti-narcotics blacklist this month, saying it was not fully cooperating in the drug war.

    Golubev said Russia is willing to partially assist Bolivia's anti-drug efforts, and that the South American country's top anti-drug official will travel to Russia next month to discuss it.

    The relationship between Bolivia and Russia has been all but dormant in recent decades. It was reinvigorated earlier this month by a natural gas exploration deal signed between Russian state energy giant Gazprom, Paris-based Total SA and Bolivian state energy company YPFB.

    At the signing, Morales lamented that his government had "lost two and a half years" in not deepening ties with Russia sooner.

    Bolivia con más helicópteros

    La Fuerza Aérea Boliviana (FAB) recibirán en breve dos helicópteros Eurocopter AS350B3 Ecureuil, que sustituirá al actualmente utilizado dos SA315 Lama. Capaz de operar a gran altura, será empleado principalmente en la tarea de Búsqueda y Salvamento, siendo operado por el Grupo Aéreo 51 de la Segunda Brigada Aérea, con sede en la Base Aérea Jorge Wilsterman de Cochabamba. La FAB también tiene cerca de Rosoboronexport gestiones que buscan la adquisición de cinco helicópteros Mil Mi-17 a un costo de 50 millones de dólares - incluyendo formación, herramientas y un montón de piezas de repuesto.

      Me parece haber leido que Brasil, concretamente la FAB, estaria por donar un puñado de helicopteros a su homonimo boliviano, no mencionan modelo pero presumo deben ser UH-1H que estan de salida en Brasil, ademas Bolivia al echar a la DEA tambien pierde los UH-1H norteamericanos, que en numero de aprox 12 operan-operaban en misiones antinarcoticos, si llegan los SA-350B3 de SAR + los 5 Mi-15 de transporte + 4-5 UH-1H brasileños como que habrian implementado una capacidad equivalente a los Huey norteamericanos, pero de inventario propio que se puede usar en lo que les plazca (los Huey USA se usan solo para antinarcoticos) lo cual de por si implica una mucho mayor capacidad con un inventario cuantitativamente similar.

      Realmente me sorprende Evo en su recuperacion de capacidades de las FFAA, estan haciendo cosas interesantes, no digo que esten comprando maravillas pero si creo han seleccionado algunas cosas que realmente necesitaban y optando por modelos "logicos" o "razonables" tanto en costo, como en performance.

      Saludos

        Este es uno de los dos lama operativos de la fab... eran 11, atrás a la derecha se ve un allouette III, creo q no vuelan y están almacenados, serán reemplazados por los Eurocopter AS350B3 primero llegan 2 y luego se planea comprar más, incluidos algunos para la policía nacional, sobre los mi-17 lei q podrían ser de 5 a 10.




        Del Brasil podrían ser los uh-1h o los esquilo...en el primer modelo Bolivia cuenta con personal altamente capacitado para operar estos y otros helos, mienstras el segundo modelo pronto introducira su par fabricado en Francia (AS350B3).

          Guena Ganchos:

          La llegada de los SA 350 y los ALCA es una gran noticia para la FAB, hace rato que se merecian un cariñito por parte del Gobierno.
          Alguien sabe si los Cougar Venezolanos siguen en Bolivia????

          Bye
