MOSCOW, March 9. /TASS/. A ban imposed on Pentagon preventing it from cooperating with Russia’s Rosoboronexport has been long in effect, as mentioned on Wednesday only in connection with approval of the US Department of Defense financing until autumn of 2017, a representative of Russia’s arms exporter told TASS on Thursday.
The company representative commented on the decision by the House of Representatives of the US Senate, which on Wednesday passed a bill on military assignments for the 2017 financial year. The document bans the Pentagon from using its budget funds for transactions with Russia’s Rosoboronexport.
"As a matter of fact, this ban slapped on the Pentagon has been in effect for a long time and has remained in place. Today it was mentioned as a specification, since the US was approving the program to finance the Pentagon until the autumn of 2017," the source said.
