Arms exports from Russia are second only to oil and gas as a source of revenue. To reduce that income stream, the United States could change strategy to wean customers off Russian arms and win back partners, says Grant Rumley, senior fellow at the Washington Institute.

  • Rumley said buying weapons from Russia is sometimes more appealing to countries because there are fewer restrictions on use of the weapons.
  • He said the Countering America’s Adversaries Through Sanctions Act from 2017 was passed to discourage partners from purchasing from Russia but is open to interpretation.
  • Rumley said the U.S. could incentivize others to purchase its weapons by jointly producing select platforms with partners.
