On Monday, Director of the Federal Service on Military and Technical Cooperation, Alexander Fomin, said that Russia has more than fulfilled its planned exports volume.
Moscow has sold military hardware worth $15.16 billion, a $2 billion increase over the past year, Fomin said at a governmental meeting.
The over-than-planned revenues have come from fresh contracts with countries like Ghana, Oman, Tanzania and Afghanistan. In Afghanistan, Russia has trained foreign pilots to operate Russian-made helicopters.
