MOSCOW, March 31. /ITAR-TASS/. Russia hopes that Tanzania, Uganda and several other African countries may become new sale markets for Russian military produce, Director of the Federal Service for Military-Technical Cooperation Alexander Fomin told ITAR-TASS on Monday.
“We lose something and find something. We have discovered many new markets, discovered Uganda and intend to develop cooperation with Tanzania and several other African countries,” he said.
Fomin noted that new partners were mainly interested in helicopters “for shipments and fight against all modern threats, including terrorism, separatism, drug trafficking, illegal migration and illegal extraction of mineral resources.”
“This is mainly all models of helicopter gunships Mil Mi-17 and a highland chopper Mi-17B-5,” Fomin said. He added that new Russian partners voiced interest in Russian fighters, firearms and armoured vehicles. “Our large air defense system is also interesting for many partners, all modern systems are needed, including S-300, Antey and S-350. All these air defense systems are in demand and have a success,” he noted.
The chief of the Russian military cooperation service noted that Russia proposed to the country’s partners different conditions of settlements for military produce. “If customers want to we are prepared to respond flexibly and give state or commercial credits. Depending on circumstances and economic situation in a concrete country we are prepared to make settlements by traditional export products of different customers, make reciprocal purchases and etc,” he added.
He named leasing as one more prospective scheme of settlements in military-technical co-operation. “This scheme is quite complicated in use and is hardly accomplishable so far, but there are already some examples of its fulfilment,” Fomin added.
