- Rosoboronexport. This state-run Russian arms dealer has shipped $1 billion worth of weapons to the Assad regime, which has slaughtered more than 9,000 Syrians since March 2011. And the death toll is mounting.
- While the United States has to its credit imposed sanctions on the Assad regime, it continues to do business with Rosoboronexport—subsidizing the mass atrocities unfolding in Syria. This is happening even though the U.S. government could purchase the same equipment through other companies.
- Tell U.S. Secretary of Defense Leon Panetta to stop the arms flow to Syria by cancelling the U.S. arms contract with Rosoboronexport!
