ARMS TRADE IN THE NEW REALITIES: THE CRISIS AROUND UKRAIANE, WESTERN SANCTIONS, AND THE RUSSIAN DEFENSE INDUSTRY

Russia Confidential editors

Arms exports are an important component of foreign-trade and foreign-policy aspirations of every country that wants to strengthen its role on the global arena. It is no coincidence that amid the ongoing Ukrainian crisis, the EU, the United States, and Ukraine itself have sought to put pressure on Russia by restricting their arms trade with it.
How will these restrictions affect Russian arms exports and imports, and the country’s defense industry as a whole? Will Russia be able to reorient its defense industry towards the Asian markets? And will that industry be able to keep the Russian armed forces supplied with all the required weaponry, including the latest high-tech systems?
In this edition of Russia Confidential we offer answers to these and other questions by four leading experts in the field: Evgeny Buzhinsky, PIR Center Senior Vice President and the Vega Radioelectronics Concern deputy director-general for foreign markets; Natalia Kalinina, chief researcher at the Institute of World Economy and International Relations (IMEMO RAN) and member of the PIR Center Executive Board; Vadim Kozyulin, senior PIR Center researcher; and Dmitry Litovkin, political commentator for the Vzglyad business daily.
