Russia does not plan to join the Arms Trade Treaty (ATT) adopted on 2 April 2013 by the UN General Assembly in the short term, says a report.

      Moscow believes the document should have been reworked, the Kommersant daily quotes two sources in the government.

      On 2 April 2013, the General Assembly adopted the landmark Arms Trade Treaty, regulating the international trade in conventional arms, from small arms to battle tanks, combat aircraft and warships. The treaty will foster peace and security by thwarting uncontrolled destabilizing arms flows to conflict regions. It will prevent human rights abusers and violators of the law of war from being supplied with arms. And it will help keep warlords, pirates, and gangs from acquiring these deadly tools. You can read the text of the treaty here.

      This Treaty shall apply to all conventional arms within the following categories:

      (a) Battle tanks;

      (b) Armoured combat vehicles;

      (c) Large-calibre artillery systems;

      (d) Combat aircraft;

      (e) Attack helicopters;

      (f) Warships;

      (g) Missiles and missile launchers; and

      (h) Small arms and light weapons.
