The Military and Technical Forum ARMY 2022, organized by the russian Ministry of Defense, has began on Thursday, August 16 in Kubinka, russian federation. Organizers claims that the main goal of exhibition is to “supply allies and partners with modern types of weapons”. All this is done in conditions when russia has a huge problem with providing weapons and ammunition (especially modern ones) to the troops participating in the so-called “special operation” in Ukraine

Based on an announcements of russian Defense Ministry 36 government contracts worth $8.6 billion are expected to be signed with russian and foreign defense industry companies. Which means plus $8.6 billion for financing terrorism and killing in Ukraine.

“With the collapse of economic relations with the West, russia is even more dependent on the arms trade than it was before, so it’s not surprising that Putin is so keen to promote them to as many non-Western customers as he can,” said Ruth Deyermond, senior lecturer in the Department of War Studies at King's College London for Reuters.

According to russian News Agency TASS russia’s Defense Ministry have already signed a deal with United Aircraft Corporation on the delivery of Su-34 supersonic frontline bombers to the troops.

This may be related to the desire of the Russian military to obtain an additional number of aircraft of this type instead of those lost in the battles in Ukraine.

Russian aggressors intensively used Su-34 against Ukraine. Thanks to the effective actions of Ukrainian defenders, numerous planes were shot down or damaged - observers say that about 20 aircraft of Su-34 type were downed in Ukraine.
