America imposed sanctions against dozens of military enterprises abroad, which, in the opinion of Washington, had violated the law on non-proliferation in North Korea, Syria and Iran. This was announced by the US state Department, noting that the company was seen in deliveries to the above countries technologies that can be used in the creation of weapons of mass destruction or missiles.
Among the Russian companies was the 150th aircraft repair plant, located in Kaliningrad, instrument Design Bureau (KBP) Tula Design Bureau of machine building (KBM) in Kolomna Design Bureau Kuntsevo (BCF) and NPO Mashinostroyenia, which is located in Reutov. In addition to Russia, under the prohibitions have catered to companies from China and Iran.
“Sanctions against defense companies from the United States introduced a long time ago, during the last two years, – has reminded “MK” military expert Alexei Leonov. They fall into the “black list” together with the enterprises of the civil sector. The fact that the United States recently extended sanctions against Russia – another step against the defense enterprises. These are companies that have foreign contracts with South American countries, the Middle East. The company KBP known to supply anti-aircraft missile and gun complex “Carapace-C1”, which, for example, is in service with the United Arab Emirates. Yet we know that the complex is guarded Russian base “Hamim” in Syria.”
According to the respondents “MK” experts, after the operation in Syria, “the interest in products of our companies has increased significantly”. “A company in Kolomna known portable anti-aircraft missile complexes such as “Needle” and “Verba”, – says Alexei Leonov, they were displayed in many exhibitions, including the Arab region of the Middle East. This product is a direct competition to the American arms market. To limit this success, the Americans and impose such sanctions under far-fetched pretexts, which still need to prove.”
“Usually they always press charges, and then it turns out that they did not carry under itself, – said the expert. – Military cooperation with the DPRK in recent years, we are not. We supply to Iran of complexes With-300, the contract that was earlier signed and made public. With Syria, and so we know that we supplied the arms and supported her, according to the UN resolution, conduct anti-terrorist operation. The US is trying to make interest in their weapons has increased. Recall the operation in Yemen, when the vaunted American weapons, which is Saudi Arabia, proved to be not the best, and Yemenis are armed with old Soviet weapons that has been delivered there successfully combat missions and was hit by a complex RPG-7 the vaunted American tanks “Abrams”.
