The Director of the Federal service for military-technical cooperation (FSMTC) of the Russian Federation Dmitry Shugaev says that the deal the U.S. and Saudi Arabia on the supply of arms by almost $ 110 billion is more like a PR campaign than an actual agreement.

The US President Donald trump may have been his first visit to Saudi Arabia. During his visit, a deal was struck for the supply of arms 110 billion dollars.

Shugaev doubt that in a short time it was possible to prepare such a number of contracts on the military side and all of them to sign up with financial obligations.

«It’s just unreal. It is possible that someone five years preparing to the visit. But something tells me that this is more a PR campaign than a reality: it indicates some unrealistic figures for the number of arms, according to his nomenclature. I can’t one hundred percent say that there is something wrong, but from the point of view of elementary logic questions arise,» — said Shugaev in interview to the newspaper «Kommersant».
