USA buy Kalashnikovs for the Afghan army through other countries

The USA purchase Kalashnikov assault rifles for the Armed Forces of Afghanistan through the third countries, including European states, the head of Rostec, a Russian state corporation, Sergei Chemezov, told Rossiya 24 TV channel.


“Virtually all countries buy, even Americans are not buying directly, but, nevertheless, they are happy to acquire these weapons — although not directly from us, but through other states, including European ones — for the Armed Forces that are in Afghanistan,” Sergei Chemezov said.

Kalashnikov concern is among the Russian enterprises, against which sanctions have been imposed over the Ukrainian crisis. Despite this, at the end of 2014, when the sanctions have already come into force, the company had almost doubled the production volume of small arms — up to 120 thousand products.
