Russia opened its "Army 2022" military exhibition on Monday with displays of military hardware and demonstration flights in the skies near Moscow, reported DW, quoting agencies.
Russian President Vladimir Putin addressed the summit, saying Moscow was ready to share its weapons with its allies in Latin America, Asia and Africa.
"[We] are ready to offer our allies the most modern types of weapons, from small arms to armored vehicles and artillery to combat aviation and unmanned aerial vehicles," Putin said at the opening ceremony of the forum.
"Almost all of them have been used more than once in real combat operations," he added.
According to Russian state media, delegations from 72 countries were taking part in the forum.
Putin's comments came nearly six months after he launched an invasion of Ukraine, where Russia has suffered several military setbacks.
Western Analysts have said that Russian losses in the war could affect the country's weapons exports.
