More than 800 members of 35 foreign delegations are going to visit the exhibition in response to invitations from ROE, added Mr. Mikheev.
The company has organised a special pavilion for small arms presentations to be accompanied by live firings at the four dedicated shooting ranges located nearby. Each of the ranges is taken care of by one of the national leading manufacturers such as:
