20.01.2022 Press release

The most distinguished employees of Rosoboronexport (part of Rostec State Corporation) were awarded by the Decree of the President of the Russian Federation for their great contribution to the development of military-technical cooperation of the Russian Federation with foreign states and many years of conscientious work. Among the high State awards are the Order of Honor and 12 medals of the Order “For Merit to the Fatherland” I and II Class.

On January 20, 2022, Rosoboronexport General Director Alexander Mikheev presented the well-deserved awards to his subordinates in a solemn ceremony.

"Rosoboronexport employees have shown responsibility and high professionalism, performing challenging tasks and working to achieve goals in the interests of the country. The President of the Russian Federation presented awards to employees of the company's financial, marketing and supply divisions – all the main areas of our activities in the field of military-technical cooperation. This speaks to the integrity and cohesion of our team, the recognition of Rosoboronexport's great contribution to the development of Russia as a strong and reliable world power at the highest level," Alexander Mikheev said.

A number of Rosoboronexport employees were also awarded commendations by the President of the Russian Federation.

"Over the past five years, Rosoboronexport has been operating in conditions of unprecedented complexity. The policy of unfair competition on the part of Western countries and the most severe coronavirus pandemic have substantially changed the structure and configuration of the conservative global arms market. Nevertheless, thanks to the comprehensive support of the State and a prompt response to new challenges, we have been able to retain strong ties with our traditional partners and consolidate in new countries and regions. Since 2017, Rosoboronexport has signed contract documents totaling about $75 billion, thus ensuing stable growth of the company's order portfolio by almost 15%," the head of Rosoboronexport stressed.
