After Barack Obama has signed the document on the U.S. sanctions against Russia approved by the Senate, the U.S. discontinued the import of Russian weaponry, in particular, the main small arms brand Kalashnikov. It particularly imposes economic sanctions on those American companies that continue military cooperation with Russia.
Until that time, the U.S. Russian Weapon Company (RWC) had successfully imported Russian weaponry, in particular, Kalashnikov rifles.
This type of small arms is very popular in the world, including among the insurgents and criminals, due to its reliability and simplicity.
Not wanting to give up profits, Russian Weapon Company (RWC) has announced that in the second quarter of 2015 it would start its own Kalashnikov rifle assembly.
