    We got a PM who made the Italians ( AgustaWestland ) to return the money without any court cases or fighting.

    We should not worry about Ukraine. Though not receiving the kits for aircraft's to be updated in India is a big problem.

    Most of Ukraine's defense industries are in the occupied region, so the planes have most probably been destroyed or looted by the Russians.
