Russia’s Splav Unaffected by Western Sanctions


Russia’s NPO Splav has not been affected by Western sanctions that targeted the defence sector of the country’s economy. This came in a statement by Splav Director General Nikolay Makarovets.

“The sanctions have had no impact on the enterprise. We continue participating in the international shows. We have good sales volumes and our own niche. The company was producing multiple missile launchers, such as Grad and Smerch, for foreign countries, while also fulfilling their output targets under Russia’s arms procurement plan,” Mr. Makarovets told journalists.

It should be noted that Western sanctions have affected Russia’s Almaz-Antey, Uralvagonzavod Kalashnikov, Sozvezdie, KRET, and Instrument Design Bureau. According to its official website, Splav is the world’s leading manufacturer of multiple rocket launcher systems, including the popular Grad, Smerch and Uragan systems.
