Volume of Russian military export in 2012 will exceed $13 bln, reports Interfax referring to Konstantin Biryulin, deputy director of Federal Service for Military Technical Cooperation (FSMTC). The politician declined to specify the volume of estimated export, since "figures may change a bit".

Meanwhile, Rostehnologii reports the volume of export deliveries of Russian arms exceeded $6.5 bln in the first half of 2012. This figure is 14% higher than it was in analogous period of 2011. Earlier on, representatives of FSMTC and Rosoboronexport expected volume of military exports in 2012 as $13.6 bln.

In 2011, overall military export through FSMTC was $13.2 bln including $10.7 bln via state intermediary Rosoboronexport. In Feb 2012, the head of Rostehnologii state-led corporation (parent company of Rosoboronexport) said it was planned to sell arms for $13.5 bln in 2012.

Late in Aug 2012, US Congressional Research Service reported that American military export in 2011 was $66.3 bln which was 14 times as large as Russian one. According to American researchers, in the last year Russia sold arms abroad to the amount of $4.8 bln.
