Russia's export in the sphere of military-technical co-operation over last year made $4.82 bln, Vladimir Putin announced at Thursday's session of the Committee for Military-Technical Co-operation.
According to the president, this is $500 mln more than it was expected.
Rosoboronexport accounts for the largest part of the export, the head of state pointed out. The Priborostroyeniye design centre and the Mashinostroyeniye research and production facility met the schedule completely.
"Great achievements were recorded with the MiG corporation," the Russian head of state said.
At the same time other exporters "failed to fulfil even half of the volumes they had planned", the president stated.
Putin's official spokesman Dmitry Peskov commented on remarks in the US media about failures in launching nuclear-capable missiles in Russia
