Russian President Vladimir Putin stated on Monday that Moscow valued its ties with nations in Latin American, Asia and Africa and was prepared to supply fashionable weapons to its allies.
President Putin used a speech at an arms present close to Moscow to boast of Russia’s superior weapons capabilities and declare its willingness to share know-how with like-minded nations.
“(We) are ready to offer our allies the most modern types of weapons, from small arms to armored vehicles and artillery to combat aviation and unmanned aerial vehicles,” President Putin stated on the opening ceremony of the “Army-2022” discussion board close to Moscow.
“Almost all of them have been used more than once in real combat operations.”
He was talking practically six months into Russia’s conflict in Ukraine, the place Moscow has suffered repeated setbacks and heavy losses.
Western army analysts say the poor efficiency of Russian troops and weaponry might make its arms exports much less enticing to potential consumers, reminiscent of India, which have closely relied on its know-how previously.
