KUBINKA /Moscow Region/, June 16. /TASS/. The book of export orders for Russian armaments and military hardware currently stands at about $50 billion, Head of Russia’s Federal Service for Military and Technical Cooperation Alexander Fomin said on Tuesday.
"The order book is substantial thanks to the efforts of the state and the defense sector and stays at the level of about $50 billion," he said on the sidelines of the Army-2015 forum being held in the Moscow Region.
