Putin offered to sell weapons to the Phillipines since US withdrawal
“If Senator Cardin does not want to sell rifles to us, Putin said you can… buy one and take one [free], almost like that. He said if you cannot buy arms anywhere, come to me,” said Duterte.
“If he (Cardin) does not want us to be allies, then we’ll go to Russia and China. You don’t deprive your ally of arms, because your ally has to protect its public and to keep the order, internally and… [against] foreign aggression,” he added.
