Rosoboronexport deliveries grow 1.5-fold over period of sanctions

The U.S. sanctions have not affected the export of Russian weapons

The sanctions imposed by the United States on Russia's state-owned arms trader Rosoboronexport have not affected the deliveries of Russian weapons abroad, the corporation's general director Anatoly Isaikin has said.

"We have already been subject to U.S. sanctions four years ago. The result is that we have increased our volume of deliveries 1.5-fold," he told a press conference in Moscow on Oct. 27.

Sanctions introduced presently follow the same pattern as before - with standard wordings, including a ban on the delivery of missile technologies, the general director said.

"We have never delivered missile technologies to the countries listed by the U.S.," Isaikin said.
