In April 2015, Russian president Vladimir Putin publicly supported Cristina Fernández and Argentina's claims to the Falkland Islands. President Putin is currently in agreements over leasing 12 Sukhoi Su-24 Fencer aircraft to Buenos Aires in return for beef and wheat.
Since Macri took power in December 2015, Argentina turned away from the previous administration's neutral international policy towards Russia and sought instead a closer relationship with Western Europe and the United States.
