Countries that are major importers of Russian weapons, such as Algeria and Egypt, are among the hardest hit by the current coronavirus pandemic, a senior Russian official said.

Russia’s Deputy Defense Minister Alexander Fomin revealed this in an interview with the Rossiyskaya Gazeta newspaper on Sunday.

“Unfortunately, Russia’s main partners in the field of military-technical cooperation, such as Algeria, Egypt, India, China and others, are among the most affected.

“It is expected that over the next two years, global military spending will decrease by eight percent and the global export of military goods (will fall) by four percent,” said MIF.

According to him, analysts predict that the global arms market is unlikely to return to pre-pandemic growth levels until 2023.

Russia has postponed several arms deliveries during the COVID-19 pandemic to date.

In part, this was due to international travel restrictions that prevented foreign experts from conducting pre-delivery inspections of the goods.

Furthermore, the inability of Russian specialists to travel to other countries to provide technical support is another factor that has affected the delivery of weapons.
