ARZAMAS (Nizhny Novgorod region), July 27. /TASS/. Russia’s Military Industrial Company (MIC) will supply overseas a batch of the BTR-80 armored personnel carriers for the UN peacekeepers, the company spokesman Sergei Suvorov told TASS on Wednesday.
"The UN peacekeepers have ordered a batch of the BTR-80 APCs", Suvorov said.
The official did not specify what country is the customer of the military equipment for the UN peacekeeping force. He also declined to specify the number of the vehicles to be supplied and the delivery timeframe.
In February, Russia passed a batch of small arms and ammunition to the Fiji peacekeepers. The arms were supplied for the Fijian mechanized infantry battalion deployed in the Golan Heights.
