ABU DHABI, February 23. /TASS/. Western sanctions against Russia have turned out to be beneficial for Russian arms exports, state-owned arms exporting firm Rosoboronexport said on Monday.
"Here, at the world's largest exhibition IDEX-2015, and other previous trade fairs, we see heightened interest of partners and customers in our products. This has become the result of the [West’s] sanctions policy against Russia. And this is beneficial to us," the company’s deputy head, Sergey Goreslavsky told TASS, adding that many customers wanted to have more reliable partners like Russia, in contrast to the countries pursuing the sanctions policy.
Russia’s exposition at the IDEX-2015 exhibition has been organized by state-run hi-tech corporation Rostec. Russian defense companies that are part of Rostec have brought over 700 exhibits to the Abu Dhabi defense show, including a full-scale specimen of the Khrizantema self-propelled anti-tank system and the export version of the Ratnik "future soldier" individual combat gear, which will be featured for the first time at the exhibition.
Russia’s delegation to the United Arab Emirates is led by Industry and Trade Minister Denis Manturov.
