KUBINKA (Realist English). President Vladimir Putin said that Russia values highly its numerous allies, partners and sympathizers on different continents, “who do not bend in front of the so-called hegemon.”
“Russia stands for the widest, comprehensive development of military-technical cooperation. Today, under the conditions of a confidently emerging multipolar world, this is especially important. We highly appreciate that our country has many allies, partners, sympathizers on different continents. These are states that do not bend in front of the so-called hegemon. Their leaders show a real masculine character and do not bend. They choose a sovereign, independent path of development, they want to collectively resolve issues of global and regional security on the basis of international law, mutual responsibility and consideration of each other’s interests, thereby contributing to the protection of a multipolar world,” the Russian leader stressed, speaking at the opening ceremony of the International Military—Technical Forum “Army-2022” and Army International Games – 2022.
The Head of the Russian State noted that Moscow sincerely values historically strong, friendly, and truly trusting ties with the states of Latin America, Asia, and Africa:
“We are ready to offer our allies and partners the most up-to-date types of weapons — from small arms to armored vehicles and artillery, combat aircraft and unmanned aerial vehicles.”
In addition, according to Putin, Russia intends to actively develop cooperative ties to create new models of weapons and equipment, to work together on fair, equal terms:
“Our country has rich experience of such successful technological cooperation, primarily within the framework of the CSTO and the Shanghai Cooperation Organization.”
