Greetings on opening of 9th International Maritime Defence Show

July 10, 2019

Vladimir Putin sent his greetings to the participants, organisers and guests of the 9th International Maritime Defence Show, held in St Petersburg on July 10–14.

The message reads, in part:

“Traditionally held in St Petersburg, this major exhibition presents the latest armament and navy assets, advanced solutions and technologies. Russia’s northern capital has every right to be regarded as a reputable shipbuilding hub. It is here that specialised higher educational institutions, research and engineering facilities are located alongside large shipyards where ships and multi-purpose vessels are built.

I strongly believe that the diverse and intense agenda of the 9th International Maritime Defence Show will be of interest for experts, helping step up military-technical and international cooperation, as well as promoting Russian military products on foreign markets.”
