BISHKEK, September 21 (RIA Novosti) - The Russian and Kyrgyz defense ministers, Sergei Ivanov and Ismail Isakov, signed a $3 million contract on military-technical aid in Bishkek Wednesday.

Under the document, Russia will provide Kyrgyzstan with dozens of Kamaz trucks, a Mi-8 Hip helicopter, firearms and spare parts for automotive and armored vehicles.

Ivanov said the Central Asian republic had drawn up the list of the supplies it needed. "Kyrgyzstan will get what it wants," the minister said.

On Monday, Russian President Vladimir Putin told a government session that the contract would help troops combat terrorism. "We remember the bitter experience of facing a large militant group that made an incursion into Kyrgyzstan from Afghanistan," Putin said.
