ABU DHABI, February 24./TASS/. Imports of defense production declined in Russia last year, due to Western sanctions and suspension of some contracts, the deputy head of Russia’s arms exporter Rosoboronexport, Igor Sevastyanov, told reporters on Tuesday.
"It will be lower, as sanctions were imposed and some contracts were frozen," Sevastyanov said in reply to a query about import volumes last year.
Focusing on cooperation with Ukraine, he said the crisis in that country had affected it. "It is clear that some Ukrainian enterprises existed through cooperation with the Russian military-industrial complex. But we will cope. We will have our own engines as well as everything else," Sevastyanov added.
