Rosoboronexport Quits India’s Tenders for Over 20,000 Automatic Rifles

Russia’s state arms seller Rosoboronexport has decided against participating in the tenders of Indian home ministry for the purchase of over 20,000 7.62×39 mm automatic rifles, a source in the system of military and technical cooperation.



“The tender documentation is 99 per cent specified by specialists of India’s home ministry for the outdated Kalashnikov automatic rifles produced in Bulgaria under the expired Soviet license. The requirements of Indian ministry for the purchase of over 20,000 automatic rifles for the reserve of the national police and the border guard service do not allow Russian companies from the very outset to submit their commercial bids,” the source said.
