Serbia is interested in purchasing Russian air defense system, said FSMTC

Serbia is interested in purchasing Russian air defense systems, in addition to the already received "Pantsir-S1", said the Director of the Federal service for military-technical cooperation (FSMTC) Dmitry Shugaev.

"Serbia also expressed interest in purchasing and other air defense systems. We are ready to provide you, our long time ally and reliable partner to assist in this matter," - said Shugaev in an interview with the Serbian online resource, "the Voice of explicitness".

He noted that Russian producers and special exporter Rosoboronexport today offer not only a wide range of first-class air defense systems of various ranges, but also complete solutions for the creation of a single highly reliable circuit defense.

"We are open to discussion, but about concrete results to speak while prematurely" - said the Director FSMTC.

Serbia, the largest importer of Russian weapons and military equipment in Europe, got the battery "Carapace-C1" at the end of February.
