The Russian government is giving the Philippines high-powered firearms to help in the fight against terrorism.
President Rodrigo Duterte mentioned Russia’s donation in a speech Wednesday at the groundbreaking ceremony of a housing project called Scout Ranger Ville in Barangays calumpang and Tartaro in San Miguel, Bulacan.
Defense Secretary Delfin Lorenzana on Wednesday also said that the 5,000 rifles with 1 million rounds of ammunition will arrive in the country on October 22, along with 20 military trucks.
These will formally be turned over to the Philippine government on October 25, and will be used for the government’s counter-terrorism efforts, Lorenzana said.
“They want to help us fight terrorism because they are also fighting terrorism in their country and they want to help the fight against global terrorism.”
He stressed the weapons will come as a donation and there will be no cost to the Philippine government.
“We will have the Kalashnikov,” Duterte said. The Kalashnikov is a renowned brand of Russian weapons named after Mikhail Kalashnikov, who invented the original Kalashnikov or AK-47 in 1947. It was considered the most popular assault rifle in the world.
