Delivery contracts with countries such as Uganda, Angola, Ethiopia and others should include personnel training programs and after-sales servicing, Rosoboronexport’s deputy chief Alexander Mikheyev said.

This year Russia has delivered six Su-30MK2 multirole fighters to Uganda and is currently in talks to diversify cooperation, he added.

Mikheyev said on Friday Uganda expressed interest in buying another six aircraft of that type.

Rosoboronexport has also signed a contract to sell six Mi-17 helicopters to Ghana, he said.
