  1. Score another one for the good guys.
    This is a double win for Ukraine in that both Indonesia and India were traditionally Russian controlled markets. 200 million for Ukraine and 200 less for Russia.
    US sanctions on the purchase of Russian equipment and poor Russian business practices have opened up those markets to other suppliers. Ukraine, US, and France have taken huge chunks of those markets. None of which has been good for Russian Military industries.
