The export list includes 60 artillery pieces for Uganda, and according to the sources of that portal, they are 120-millimeter mortars.
“1,500 artillery missiles were exported from Serbia to Turkey and 25 to Greece. Although the Greek business is modest in quantity, this year it has grown into an economically and politically important business because the Belgrade company EDePro has contracted the export of a large quantity of G-2000 122 mm caliber missiles with a range of 40 kilometers, “it added.
Greece has decided to procure rockets for its RM-70 multi-barrel rocket launchers, a Czechoslovak derivative of the famous Soviet BM-21 Grad.

The list for rockets and launchers includes 122 mm rockets and rocket engines, and in addition to Turkey and Greece, there are also 1,000 pieces for Saudi Arabia, 100 for Armenia and 10 for Israel.
“The samples that went to Kakvaz attracted the attention of the media because the Azerbaijani authorities pointed out that G-2000 missiles were falling on the positions of their army,” it is added.
The portal adds that according to the UN report, the list of small arms exports also includes 56,218 pieces of various weapons, from new production, but also surpluses.
“Quite expectedly, there are also weapons that the citizens handed over to the state under the pressure of the law on weapons, with a complex procedure for approving possession permits.” Later, these weapons, through private companies, go further mainly to the United States, judging by the ads from the American media and presentations on social networks “, it is added.
