Russia Ready to Sell Arms to Somalia After Sanctions Lifted
MOSCOW (Sputnik) The global demand for Russian weaponry after military operations in Syria has exceeded the supply, the deputy director of the Russian Federal Service for Military-Technical Cooperation said Friday.

“Demand on the global market for Russian weapons currently exceeds supply. We have very strict [Russian] state orders and we cannot satisfy some of the requests from our potential foreign customers right now,” Anatoly Punchuk told RIA Novosti.

He said that the rise in the demand for Russian arms happened after Russian Aerospace Forces operations in Syria.

“Syria made our production even more in demand on the global market,” Punchuk said.

He said that Russian weapons foreign orders currently stand at $54 billion.
