    Russia is planning to meet its goals on deliveries of weaponry under foreign sales contracts worth over $14 billion in 2016, the head of Russia's Federal Service for Military-Technical Cooperation said Wednesday.

    SOCHI (Sputnik) — According to Fomin, Russia's current arms export orders portfolio stands at $53-56 billion in 2016.
