Russia Ensuring Missiles Deliveries for Chinese Fighter Jets
Russia fully ensures the supplies of air weapons for the Chinese Sukhoi fighters without Ukraine. This was announced by Director General of the Tactical Missiles Corporation Boris Obnosov on Tuesday.
“The list of air weapons for the Russian-made Sukhoi fighters is supplied by the Tactical Missiles Corporation without Ukraine. Earlier, Ukraine supplied the R-27 air-to-air missiles. Enterprises of the Tactical Missiles Corporation manufactured 80% of components. Today, we are able to fully meet the needs of China,” Mr. Obnosov stated.
The official earlier said that the Tactical Missiles Corporation was ready to cooperate with Ukraine’s Artem Corporation that produced air weapons and noted that most of the components were manufactured in Russia.
“The supplies to Ukraine can be an additional source of revenue. Therefore, if the Ukrainian side makes a decision to continue exports to third countries with our components, we are likely to supply our parts to them,” Mr. Obnosov concluded.
