18.10.2016 Press release

At the 20th anniversary Interpolitex state security exhibition 2016, JSC Rosoboronexport (part of the Rostec State Corporation) will exhibit its comprehensive solutions for law enforcement, counter-terrorism and protection of critical infrastructures. The exhibition will be held at the VDNKh All-Russian Exhibition Center in Moscow from 18 to 22 October.

“Increased terrorist activities, the globalization of criminal groups as well as the use of the methods of hybrid warfare by some countries have recently heightened interest among most of countries in modern equipment and weaponry intended to ensure national security. Rosoboronexport is ready to offer foreign customers the whole range of facilities to counter such developments on a nationwide scale,” said Vyacheslav Ovchinnikov who heads of the Company’s delegation at the exhibition.

Demand for both small arms and light armored vehicles as well as intelligent crime prevention and control systems has been strong among counter-terror and special services in recent years. At Rosoboronexport’s stand potential customers will have an opportunity to get acquainted with the specifications of BTR-82A and BTR-80A armored personnel carriers, BMP-3 and BMP-3M infantry fighting vehicles as well as the GAZ-233036 Tigr special police motor vehicle. The Ka-226T and ANSAT light multipurpose helicopters, Ka-52 and Mi-171Sh helicopters and Be-200 unique amphibious aircraft will be also presented to visitors to the exhibition.

The Yarygin pistol, Kedr submachine gun and, of course, the Kalashnikov assault rifle in a variety of derivatives ─ a hallmark of Russian arms makers ─ seem most promising among small arms for demonstration to foreign delegations. Moreover, the SKAT small arms trainer together with weapon mockups will be placed at Rosoboronexport’s stand to demonstrate the capabilities of the Kalashnikov MMG AK-101 assault rifle and MR-654K pistol.

In addition, much attention is now being given to building an integrated security system for critical infrastructures. The Russian side offers different options of such a system, depending on the customer’s material and financial possibilities, including its integration with the equipment system from other manufacturers.

The exhibition includes an extensive demonstration program, which will allow potential customers to get familiar with the specifications and capabilities of armament, special equipment and facilities developed for law enforcement authorities under conditions of their use in practice. To this end, on October 22, Russian Ministry of Internal Affairs’ special internal security units will hold a demonstration and demonstration special tactical training exercises at the Geodeziya Research Institute’s Testing Range (Krasnoarmeysk, Moscow Region).

“In total, we expect that representatives from over 60 countries, which show interest in Russian-made weapons and military equipment, will visit Rosoboronexport’s exhibit display. Among them are both our traditional partners and a number of potential customers from virtually all regions of the world,” said Vyacheslav Ovchinnikov.
