Average volume of Russia's military import via Rosoboronexport has not changed through the recent 2-3 years and remains $100-150 mln, the company's director Anatoly Isaikin told ARMS-TASS at the 23-rd international exhibition Euronaval-2012.

Of course, these figures do not include procurement of two French Mistral-class assault landing ships for Russian Navy, Isaikin added.

"The Mistral contract is an absolutely different issue, and I wouldn't divide it into separate volumes as it is not only delivery but co-production, transfer of technologies to Russian shipyards. Moreover, these ships are partially built in Russia. So, that is a separate kind of import. And I'd consider this Mistral-related import component separately", pointed out the head of Rosoboronexport.

"Therefore, 100-150 million dollars of imported arms looks insignificant sum comparing to 10-11 billions of exports", stressed Anatoly Isaikin.
