Press Release, October 22
Rosoboronexport JSC (part of the Rostec State Corporation) takes part in the 23rd International State Security Exhibition, Interpolitex 2019, which will be held from October 22 to 25 at the VDNKh All-Russian Exhibition Center (Pavilion No. 75) in Moscow.
At Interpolitex 2019, Rosoboronexport will undertake active efforts to promote the entire range of security products for law enforcement agencies, counter-terror units and other security agencies.
“At this year's Interpolitex, we expect to see representatives of a wide range of law enforcement and special agencies of the partner countries from Southeast Asia, Latin America and the CIS. Here they have an excellent opportunity to get a closer look at the armaments, equipment and software/hardware solutions offered by Russian manufacturers. Many of the products presented have been successfully used by Russia’s law enforcement services, including the Federal Security Service (FSB), the police, the Russian Guard, the Border Guard, as well as private security companies. Rosoboronexport is ready to negotiate on the supply of military, dual-use and civilian products to interested foreign customers on mutually agreed terms,” said Alexander Mikheev, Director General of Rosoboronexport and Deputy Chairman of the Russian Engineering Union.
The exhibition is held in three halls of Pavilion No. 75 and in an outdoor area, where full-scale special equipment is on display. The total exhibition area exceeds 25,000 square meters. Rosoboronexport’s stand is located in Hall "A". More than 100 items of weapons and military equipment developed and manufactured by Russian defense enterprises are being exhibited here. At the company’s stand, you can test your skills in shooting Kalashnikov assault rifle and MP-446 Viking self-loading pistol mockups on the SKAT shooting simulator.
Today, promotion of the state and infrastructure security tools and services in the world market is a driver of Rosoboronexport's development. Russian industry has excellent competencies in developing and manufacturing products to combat terrorism, extremism and organized crime, protect high-priority and critical infrastructure facilities, extended borders, as well counter-UAV systems, electronic warfare and secure communications equipment.
In addition, Rosoboronexport is actively developing the civilian and service weapons market segment. The partners’ security agencies are considering our commercial offers on various versions of Saiga carbines, MP-18, MP-135, MP-156, MP-27 and MP-43 rifles, Viking pistols designed and manufactured by Rostec’s Kalashnikov Concern, ORSIS T-5000M rifles, Vepr carbines, cartridges for them and a variety of attachments. Foreign customers' interest in civilian versions of the SVD sniper rifle under the Tiger brand is also noticeable. Most of these models are showcased at Interpolitex 2019 by their manufacturers.
Most of the equipment operational with Russian special forces units has been battle-tested. In addition, the adopted solutions to ensure security in crowded places and in settlements during the 2018 FIFA World Cup proved successful, which was noted in official reports of international organizations and by representatives of the security agencies of the countries that participated in the championship.
During Interpolitex 2019, the Collective Security Treaty Organization (CSTO) will hold the first International Military-Economic Conference titled "Military-Economic Cooperation of the CSTO Member States: Development Trends, Problems and Prospects." Rosoboronexport will take an active part in it.
