Denisov is the head of Rosoboronexport’s delegation at the FAMEX 2017 international aerospace exhibition being held at airbase No. 1 in Santa Lucia in Mexico.

"Rosoboronexport cooperates with almost all Latin American countries. Russia does its best to strengthen its positions on the market, offering not only contracts for ready-made systems, as many other countries do, but also after-sales maintenance, spare parts and repair. Russia is also offering to train Latin American personnel to operate, service, upgrade and even produce hi-tech military hardware under license," Denisov said.

In addition to Rosoboronexport, Russia’s state hi-tech corporation Rostec, Russian Helicopters Group and Irkut Corporation are taking part in the FAMEX 2017 exhibition. The exhibition in Mexico is being attended by more than 500 companies from dozen countries.

According to Denisov, this has shown that "Russia is gradually strengthening military and technical cooperation" with Latin American countries.

"Russian-made planes, helicopters, air defense systems and Army equipment remain the focus of attention for our Latin American partners for many years," the Marketing Activity Department’s head said.

The successful performance of Russia’s air task force in the counterterrorist operation in Syria has aroused interest in many military hardware items.

Rosoboronexport has displayed more than 160 items of Russian-made military hardware, including the full-scale examples of the Mil Mi-17 (NATO reporting name: Hip) helicopter in service with the Mexican armed forces and the Gorets-M armored vehicle manufactured by Russia’s Special Hardware Research Institute. In early March, the Gorets-M vehicle was delivered to Mexico’s Federal Protection Service for temporary use.
