Myanmar- Russia seeks a foothold in the Indian Ocean through arms trade with Myanmar


Russia seeks to influence Myanmar similar to what China is doing and find a foothold in the region, by making additional profits in the legal and illegal sale of arms to the Myanmar army, through intermediaries. Myanmar relies heavily on Russia and is considered a strategic partner as the largest country dealing with Russian weapons, according to analysts and researchers, who believe that Russia is looking for concentration in the Indo-Pacific region through Myanmar through the formation of a naval force for training there. It is noteworthy that Russia is the second-largest arms seller after China after Western countries imposed sanctions on Myanmar’s military.
