Putin in despair because of the decline in sales on the Russian arms market



After years of phenomenal growth in the export of arms Russian production was stagnant

"Russian President Vladimir Putin is very proud of the actions of the army in Syria - says BloombergView . - And, among other things, it has become central to the advertising of Russian arms as a commodity. "

"Of course, you can not miss this opportunity to strengthen our position in the global arms market", - said Russian President at a meeting with Russian defense companies this week. He added that the world was unprecedented desire to buy Russian weapons "through the effective use of [Russian] weapons in actual, combat, including counter-terrorist operations in Syria."

"But while Putin says proud language, it is easy to hear them tinge of desperation - says the author. - After years of phenomenal growth in the export of arms Russian production was stagnating. And this was no time when oil prices devastate the economy against the backdrop of a massive military buildup, which depends not least on these sales abroad ", - says the article.

"Arms exports is difficult to measure - indicates the author. - According to Sergei Denisentseva, one of the leading experts on the subject, from 2005 to 2013 global sales of almost tripled, but then almost every year, or fell, or remained the same. At a recent forum at the Center for Strategic and International Studies in Washington called Denisentsev some reasons for the difficulties of the Kremlin. "

First, China and India, who traditionally bought Russian arms almost half of that is exported, most began to produce more weapons. Second, Vietnam - another big market - since last year, is open to the US defense industry, President Obama lifted a ban on sales to the country. Third, low oil prices have reduced the purchasing power of Algeria, Nigeria, Azerbaijan, as major buyers of Russian arms.

"After a decade of military expansion that seeks to consolidate the position of world superpower, this year Russia urizuye defense budget of just 25%. (According to other estimates, by 10%, but still it is a fundamental change.) In Putin has reason to boast how his army shows itself in Syria, but that it had to make its revenues "- sums Harshou.
