Kremlin: Indonesia is interested in purchasing Russian submarines

Indonesia is interested in acquiring Project 636 Varshavyanka-class diesel-electric submarines, as stated by Dmitry Shugaev, head of the Federal Service of Military-Technical Cooperation (FSMTC) of Russia, in an interview with Kommersant.

Shugaev noted that "the momentum is good," for this project to proceed. "We are discussing this topic with Indonesian partners, we are ready to search for mutually beneficial approaches," he said.

However, the head of the FSMTC added that at the same time, Jakarta has undertaken the development of its own marine equipment manufacturing.

Shugaev also noted the high degree of readiness for the supply of S-400 air defense systems to Turkey. According to him, this issue is almost "agreed upon."
