IZHEVSK, July 2. /TASS/. Civilian arms export of Russia’s Kalashnikov Concern hit by western sanctions dropped by just 2%, the Russian rifle-maker said in the annual report released on Thursday.
"Despite sanctions of certain Western nations and further block of access to markets of these countries, export sales [of civilian arms] declined in 2014 by just 2% year-on-year owing to entry to new and promising sales markets, including countries of the Asia-Pacific Region," the company said.
Kalashnikov Concern is the Russia’s largest producer of assault rifles, sniper rifles, guided munitions and a broad range of arms for civilian and sports purposes.
