Ukraine has apparently beaten Russia to the punch in landing an arms sale at the International Defense Exhibition currently underway in Abu Dhabi. Russia is displaying 500 exhibits at the show, including such weapons as the T-80 tank and the Ka-50 attack helicopter. However, the Ukrainian Defense Ministry revealed yesterday that Ukraine’s arms export company Ukrspetseksport had signed a contract at the show to provide armored vehicles to Indonesia.
