An international arms exhibition center will open in the Moscow region in 2004. The center will be exhibiting arms, new military equipment and technologies, Moscow region's Governor Boris Gromov reported today. Gromov who had visited the new center's construction site said the center would occupy a training area where Russian Army's military equipment had been tested. The decision to choose this area as a construction site for the center was due to the fact that it contains all the facilities necessary for military tests to be carried out, the Governor explained. According to him, the center will be open permanently, and exhibitions are to be held every two years.
Russian officials have repeatedly declared that Israeli aviation poses a threat to the Russian military in Syria.
