    "Only in the first half of 2017, the export of weapons and military equipment for the air force under our contracts amounted to about $2 billion," Ladygin said.

    In 2016, Rosoboronexport delivered weaponsand military equipment worth some $13 billion to more than 50 countries.

    The company's order backlog was worth about $45 billion, and that Russia was fulfilling about 5,000 international deals in the sphere of military-technical cooperation.
