"Kalashnikov" expands the sale of small arms in South-East Asia

Immediately two countries in South-East Asia - Malaysia and Thailand - have concluded agreements with the Russian concern "Kalashnikov" regulating the supply of civilian weapons. According to RIA Novosti, "The agreements of the Kalashnikov concern with partners in Malaysia and Thailand assume the supply of civilian products," said a representative of the state corporation Rostek.

Earlier state corporation Rosteh already reported on its successes in the region, in particular - about signing a contract for the supply of a marketing lot of Kalashnikov assault rifles to Indonesia.

According to Alexey Krivoruchko, general director of the Kalashnikov concern: "The contracts concluded with the countries of the Asia-Pacific region will demonstrate the advantages of our weapons and the company's prospects in conditions of sanctions and globalization of world markets."

The thesis of sanctions in the context of the export of "Kalashnikov" is not accidental. In summer, as a result of the sanctions imposed on Russia, the concern closed one of the key markets - the US. Then the concern "Kalashnikov" recognized that the US is an important market for the sale of its civilian weapons. "Kalashnikov" products are in great demand in the USA, pre-order for civilian products is three times higher than the annual volume of supplies. "Thus, the US government's sanctions against Kalashnikov are contrary to the interests of American consumers," the concern noted.

The imposition of sanctions on "Kalashnikov" caused a stir in July on the American market: all the weapons available in the US were sold out in a matter of days.
