“The decision has been taken and the work is ongoing. The Defense Ministry has already sent the first notifications and documents to the German side,” Oleg Bochkaryov said.
The German manufacturer was to provide combat simulation technology to the Mulino center that was expected to improve the combat skills of up to 30,000 servicemen a year. The deal was estimated at €120 million.
Bochkaryov said if the construction of a new training center similar to the one in Mulino is launched, Russia will not cooperate with Rheinmetall. “Of course, if there is a new training center, it will be fully domestic, as we will no more play this game with Rheinmetall,” he stressed.
In August, Russian Deputy Defense Minister Yury Borisov said a St. Petersburg-based transport IT-solution company, Tranzas might supply some laser simulators needed for the combat training center as the German weapon concern refused to implement the deal.
