LE BOURGET (France), October 19. /TASS/. Russia’s anti-terror operation in Syria has increased the interest of foreign customers in Russian weapons, Deputy Director of the Federal Service for Military and Technical Cooperation Anatoly Punchuk told TASS on Wednesday.
"No doubt, during the ongoing Syria operation, the Russian combat hardware has demonstrated its high tactical and technical characteristics in combat conditions. The successes of our anti-terror contingent have increased the interest of foreign customers in the entire range of Russian-made military products, including naval hardware," he said at the 25th Euronaval-2016 international naval show.
Russia launched its anti-terror operation in Syria on September 30, 2015 at the request of Syrian President Bashar Assad. The anti-terror operation involves Russian combat aircraft, including strategic bombers. The operation’s active phase lasted until March 15, after which Russia withdrew its basic contingent from Syria.
