NIZHNY TAGIL, September 9. /TASS/. The tenth international arms show Russia Arms Expo 2015 [RAE 2015] is due to open in Nizhny Tagil, in Russia’s Urals region, on Wednesday, the organizers have said.
The representatives of defence agencies of 65 countries are expected to attend the event that will run through September 12. Around 250 defence contractors will exhibit their products.
More than 700 journalists from the leading Russian and international media outlets will cover the arms show.
The organizers have promised to revive the Soviet traditions of celebrating Tanker’s Day and the military have announced plans for daily demonstration flights with the use of weapons.
Russia's Almaz-Antey manufacturer will present its products at the Staratel range of the Nizhny Tagil Institute of Metal Testing as part of the event.
Some European arms exporting firms have been banned from coming to the exhibition because of sanctions against Russia, Alexey Zharich, the state secretary and deputy director of the UralVagonZavod trade and production company, told TASS in late August.
However, arms exporters from Turkey, Italy, South Korea, China and the United Arab Emirates will display their products at the arms show, he said. "Even the United States is sending a delegation to RAE-2015."
Russia Arms Expo is on the world’s Top 10 list of arms shows, with the number of exhibits having grown since 1999 to about 2,500 items from 50 countries. The business program of the show will be attended by the leaders of relevant governmental agencies, major Russian and foreign defence contractors and experts in defence industry and international relations.
