Sergey Goreslavsky, Russian state arms exporter, Rosoboronexport, said that Rosoboronexport signed over 1,300 contracts in 2015.

The Russian state arms exporter, Rosoboronexport, concluded over 1,300 contracts on the weapons delivery in 2015, the company’s deputy director general said Friday.

“Last year, we signed over 1,300 contracts,” Sergey Goreslavsky told Rossiya 24 television.

On November 2, 2015, Rosoboronexport’s Director General Anatoly Isaykin said the agency would maintain annual arms exports levels at $12-13 billion until at least 2017.

These levels would allow Russia to retain the second place after the United States in exporting weapons, Isaykin added.

On December 14, 2015, the Stockholm International Peace Research Institute (SIPRI) published its annual report of the world’s 100 largest arms manufacturers, ranked in terms of sales, where it said that in 2014 Russian arms industry’s sales continued their upward trend, despite difficulties in the country’s economy, caused by Western economic sanctions.The report said that at least 11 Russian arms manufactures were included in the top 100 for 2014, and they accounted for 10 percent of the total arms sales of the 100 firms.
