DUSHANBE, October 5, 2015, Asia-Plus – Tajikistan is participating in a two-day Russian Defense Ministry’s fair, dubbed Innovation Day.

22 countries have reportedly been invited to attend the fair that kicked off on October 5 and is concluding on October 6.

Russia’s Radio Station Ekho Moskvy quoted Colonel Roman Kordyukov, the acting head of the Russian Defense Ministry Main Directorate for Scientific Research and Engineering Support for Advanced Technologies, as saying that Belarus, Tajikistan, Uzbekistan, China, Venezuela, and some other friendly countries are participating in the fair.

A number of briefings and roundtables are taking place on the sidelines of the fair.

The first Russian Defense Ministry’s Innovation Day fair took place in Moscow in 2013 and cutting-edge military equipment and hardware – some of it too secret for the public eye – were put on display at that fair.

Androids, drone prototypes, and thin impenetrable armor were revealed to visitors in 2013.   More than 260 design bureaus, research institutes, and student labs presented their pet projects at the 2013 fair.
