He gave these comments on media reports that Israeli Defense Ministry had instructed all country’s companies creating unmanned aerial combat vehicles not to begin and not to continue talks over possible new contracts with Russia in this sphere.
“We have bought everything a long time ago and we have no current contracts [over drone delivery] with them. All liabilities which we had contracted with them are fulfilled,” Borisov said, adding that the Defense Ministry planned and plans no new contracts with Israel over drones.
The Ural civil aviation plant has already set up an assembly production of aerial combat vehicles in Russia’s Volga River republic of Tatarstan in a contract signed between Russian defense machine-building group Oboronprom and Israel Aerospace Industries (IAI) military and commercial aerospace technology developer in 2010. These drones were named Forpost (stronghold) and Zastava (border checkpoint) in Russia.
The Russian Defense Ministry has earlier bought 14 unmanned aerial combat vehicles Bird Eye-400, I-View and Searcher Mk II from IAI at a total cost of around $53 million.
