    Bangladesh and Sri Lanka are interested in purchasing Russia’s Gepard-class frigates, the head of the International Cooperation Department of Russia’s state technology corporation Rostec, Viktor Kladov, said.

    KUALA LUMPUR (Sputnik) – Malaysia’s capital Kuala Lumpur is hosting the 15th Defense Services Asia Exhibition and Conference (DSA-2016) on April 18-21. Over 300 products of the Russian military-industrial complex are being presented at the exhibition.

    "Not only Bangladesh, but also Sri Lanka, have expressed serious interest [in Russian Gepard-class frigates]. A delegation of this country’s [Sri Lanka’s] defense ministry came to our DSA-2016 stand, they expressed their interest," Kladov told RIA Novosti.

    Russia is ready to respond to a relevant request from Sri Lanka or Bangladesh as soon as it is submitted, Kladov said.

    Gepard-class frigates are designed to engage surface ships, submarines and air targets, both independently and as part of a task force, as well as to perform escort and patrol tasks.
