Title: Russian arms sales : the other story behind Somalia's piracy
Author: Koh, Collin Swee Lean; Matthews, Ron
Copyright year: 2008
Abstract: The piracy problem in Somali waters highlights the challenges and dilemmas facing Russia's arms exporters despite phenomenal sales growth since 2000. A combination of gactors, including fierce competition in the global defence market, may compel Russia to sell to less-demanding clients, shunned by Western defence contractors. This could potentially result in intesified geopolitical clashes between Russia and the West.
