The motive for the demarche was a group of senators U.S. intelligence report, claiming that under the guise of the equipment for the Russian commercial satellite company transferred technology to Iran that could be used for the creation of ballistic missiles.
Report State Intelligence Council entered the Senate at the end of last week. His main conclusion — despite the international sanctions, "Rosoboronexport" continues to cooperate with Iran, and under the guise of the equipment to launch commercial satellites transmit technology that can be applied to the creation of ballistic missiles, "Kommersant".
U.S. intelligence services believe that "a key role in the implementation of programs from gallakticheskoy Iran" played "Rosoboronexport".
According to TSAMTO, the occurrence of disk imaging is associated with another attempt to provide information pressure and discredit Russia's position other day visit to Tehran, the Minister of Foreign Affairs of the Russian Federation Sergey Lavrov.
The main goal — to disrupt efforts by Moscow and Tehran in coordination positions of the parties in the upcoming talks in Moscow in the 5 +1 and the Iranian delegation on Iran's nuclear program there.
In addition, the purpose of U.S. intelligence and the U.S. State Department is to discredit the Russian Federation and Iran, as responsible members of the international community.
Trivial provocative nature of the report special services is also intended to counter rapprochement of Russia and Iran on the international nuclear safety.
Russian authorities have stated more than once that they do not consider cooperation with Tehran in the development of peaceful space violation of international treaties. This cooperation is carried out in compliance with all international standards and agreements, and in no way linked to any military developments.
In this regard, catchy, that, according to "Kommersant", "U.S. experts fluctuate that the next move will lead to break contracts with the Pentagon's" Rosoboronexport ". In other words intelligence report priori considered intentional "information an injection of" discrediting Russia.
In addition, the significant moment is that U.S. intelligence services themselves have pointed out that in recent years, Moscow has "taken a number of steps to strengthen controls over the export of missile technology." Remark to the effect that that while "these acts can not be called fully successful" can be entirely attributed "the conscience" special services USA.
Senators also cause irritation of the Russian weapons supplies Syria.
"Kommersant" newspaper cites U.S. Congressional Research Service, according to which in 2011 ordered Syria to Russian weapons worth 3.5 billion dollars. In the list of ordered systems: 24 MiG-29 m/m2, 36 Yak-130UBS, eight air defense systems "Buk-M2e" ZRPK "Armour-C1 ', anti-ship missiles Kh-35E and other equipment.
In the "Rosoboronexport" logic of U.S. senators categorically reject. Deputy General Director of "Rosoboronexport" Igor Sevastyanov told "Kommersant" that the company wants to make contracts for the supply of arms to Syria until the world community does not accept other binding decisions for Russia.
