Key professionals from all over the world took part in the Army-2018 International Military-Technical Forum. The exhibition display and demonstration programs were organized in one of the cities of the Moscow region on the territory of Patriot Expocenter, Alabino Testing Grounds, Kubinka Aerodrome and Patriot Park.

The welcome speech was given by Sergei Shoigu, the Minister of Defense of the Russian Federation, four-star general. He mentioned that militarily-specific technologies and expertise demonstrated during the Forum were created to defend the borders of Russia, maintain marine, airspace and ground safety. Representatives of the Government of the Russian Federation, the Federal agencies of executive authority, Russian top military officials, central military authorities and enterprises of the defense industrial complex and international delegations participated in the opening ceremony of Army-2018.

“We did our best to show what was done by our researchers and engineers to defend borders of our country, to maintain safety.
