    Army 2015 Defense Forum (22)

    Army-2015 forum, which takes place in the Moscow Region on a large scale, has drawn a record-breaking number of international participants.

    KUBINKA (Sputnik) — The international military-technical forum Army-2015, held in the Russian town of Kubinka (Moscow Region), has attracted a record 7,000 participants, Chairman of the Russian Armed Forces' Military Science Committee Stanislav Suvorov said on Friday.

    Army-2015 forum ran from June 16-19 at the Russian Armed Forces’ Patriot Park in Kibinka. The event was organized by the Russian Defense Ministry to demonstrate the latest in Russian weaponry.

    “I note that it is definitely not the first and not the only major event held by the [Russian] Defense Ministry in recent years, but it has set a record both in terms of its scale and the number of participants,” Suvorov said.

    He added that more than 7,000 people representing 55 cities and 12 countries took part in the work of the forum this year.

    On Friday, Russian Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev visited Army-2015 noticing that "we will be able to replace military equipment that was purchased abroad". He was accompanied by Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu and Deputy Prime Minister Dmitry Rogozin.
