Unfortunately, the countries of the region are very familiar with the threat of terrorism. Russia, too, has not been spared the threat, and today Russian enterprises are developing and producing unique means and solutions for detecting and neutralizing both small groups of extremists and fighting numerous highly organized terrorist groups. Most of them have been successfully tested under real battle conditions and appreciated by specialists during the operation in Syria.
Three leading Russian defense manufacturers, including High-Precision Systems Holding Company and SPARK, participate in Russia’s joint exhibit display organized by Rosoboronexport. More than 200 defense products are on display on the Rosoboronexport stand.
