Delegates from over 30 countries came together in the Chechen city Grozny on May 23-25 for a security conference, which featured Russia’s advanced hardware and weapons that can be used for a comprehensive response to terror threats, to uphold public order and secure borders.
"The ‘Complex Security Systems’ project drew attention of delegates from Venezuela, Vietnam, Zimbabwe, Indonesia, Myanmar, Nicaragua, Serbia, South Africa and others," the Rosoboronexport state corporation said in a press release.
Russian drones, small arms, electronic surveillance and radio detection equipment, security screening technologies and light helicopters were in the limelight, the company said.
Rosoboronexport’s deputy chief executive Sergei Goreslavsky said many countries were boosting their anti-terror defenses and increasing security spending. In some countries, budget funds reserved for anti-terror police units equaled army spending, he said.
