Forecasts indicate that Russia has sold $10 billion worth of arms and military equipment this year, Deputy Prime Minister Sergei Ivanov said on Tuesday.
"According to even the most conservative estimates, the export of military products in 2010 - to more than 60 countries - will exceed $10 billion," he said.
Last year's sales came in at $8.5 billion.
No crises or changes in the world order or even sanctions could affect the "creative activity" of Russian arms manufacturers, Ivanov said.

Military exercises are held in order to prevent a war rather than prepare for one. If a potential enemy knows and sees that the Russian Army is constantly improving its skills and adopting state-of-the-art combat equipment and combat support systems he will hardly risk aggression against these Armed Forces and the country they defend.
