Russia and EADS

Russia has been seeking a seat on the board of EADS. Sergei Prikhodko, a Russian foreign policy presidential wonk, commented that Russia "will insist on at least a blocking stake" in the EADS board as EADS and the Russian military industrial complex grow more and more entangled.

EADS just rebuffed Russia for the suggestion.

That would be one way for Russia to bootstrap its military tech from the Soviet derived stuff they have now. That must have been something that made the Europeans rather uncomfortable.
