    LANGKAWI (Malaysia) (Sputnik) – Russian weapons exports for 2014 stood at more than $15.5 billion and current orders for weapons deliveries stand at $48 billion, the director of the Russian Federal Service for Military-Technical Cooperation said Thursday.

    “We completed the 2014 plan with $15.5 billion, even exceeding [the plan] a bit,” Alexander Fomin said, adding that portfolio orders for weapons to foreign military clients currently stands at $48 billion.

    According to Fomin, western sanctions “obviously had a negative impact on the FSMTC’s work,” but last year’s plan was fulfilled and that “this year’s results would be positive.”
