Thanks to the wonders of google mis/translations I can bring you some information from a Russian publication on the supply of arms to Georgia. Based on UN figures.
Original in Russian here:
GREETINGS TO ARMS
Statistics on the supply of arms said on warpath Caucasian former Soviet republics, particularly Georgia. It is zealously in this case his «revolutionary» brothers helped Ukraine - Pravda, the Soviet «sekond-hendom».
In the past few months, United Nations Member States have submitted to the UN Register of Conventional Arms, its official annual reports on arms exports and imports for 2006. The registry was established in accordance with the decision of the UN General Assembly on 6 December 1991 and operational since 1992 th. He is the official record of transfers of conventional arms in the seven categories of arms and military equipment (IWT): tanks, armored combat vehicles, large caliber artillery, combat aircraft, attack helicopters, warships and missiles.
C 2003 in the register separately provided data on the supply of man-portable air defense systems (MANPADS).
It should be noted that not all States to submit their reports to the register. In addition, the records of many countries (especially third world) are purely formal in nature and do not contain any information. Typically, the level of participation in the registry, openness and reliability records relate to foreign and domestic policies of a country and its interest in maintaining the credibility of international institutions.
The specifics of the arms trade will inevitably impose their imprint on the format and completeness of the data submitted, leaving serious doubts about the veracity of reports of many participants register. It seems, the non-inclusion in the register «uncomfortable» for one reason or another supply - the widespread practice of almost all nations are usually incomplete and reporting on transfers of missile weapons.
Nevertheless, the annual reports of the Register UN - a valuable source of information, primarily in the identification of small arms transfers, the supply of used military equipment and supplies in underdeveloped countries and areas of conflict. Information on all these categories are rarely caught in print.
Of particular interest in this regard are reports Russia and other republics of the former Soviet Union, and Eastern Europe. The level of transparency in arms trade in all these countries leaves much to be desired, but that Russia has the second-third place in the world for military exports, but because of the former Soviet Union and sotslagerya the world market continues to go wide stream VVT Soviet-made.
Ukraine: arsonist arms race in South Caucasus
Ukraine, in its report to the UN Register has once again confirmed the reputation as a leading global trader used weapons from the arsenals of former Soviet Army. For example, in 2006 the country had traded tanks T-72 and T-55 armored personnel carriers and infantry combat vehicles, artillery systems and combat aircraft MiG-29. Among the buyers - Azerbaijan, Congo, Iraq, Yemen, Sri Lanka, Uganda, Vietnam ...
... And even the United States. Besides the Ukrainians managed to sell installment of man-portable air defense systems (MANPADS) Soviet-made - 14 launchers 9P58M and 33 anti-aircraft missiles (ZUR) 9M36-1 complex 9K34 «Strela-3», 29 launchers 9P519 and 71 ZUR 9M313 complex 9K310 « Igla-1 », 49 launchers 9P516 and 99 ZUR 9M39 complex 9K38« Needle ». Apparently, they are intended for refining in the U.S. caused by a variety of counter MANPADS.
Basis of military exports Ukraine - technology resulting from the Soviet Union. Production of its own defense industry are only BTR-3U (collected in Kharkov modified «clone» BTR-80) and R-27 missiles produced Kiev «Artemom».
Ukraine continues to play a destabilizing role in the Caucasus region, supplying weaponry Georgia and Azerbaijan. For both republics Ukraine - the main supplier of IWT. Particularly drew the attention of supply from Ukraine to Azerbaijan in 2006, the first of five MiG-29 fighter aircraft, sharply increasing the combat capabilities of the Air Force of Azerbaijan and marks a new arms race in the Caucasus. Continued supply of Azerbaijanis T-72 tanks and 120 mm mortars, launched in previous years. In Georgia, the Ukrainian record is not listed occurred in 2006, the purchase of Georgians in Ukraine six training aircraft L-39 (albeit, perhaps, their actual transfer was made in early 2007 th), as well as appearing in the Georgian record delivery Ukraine ZRK «Osa-AKM» and small arms.
In the Caucasus like to be armed
Georgian report for 2006 in the UN Register - the most detailed of all, before the post-Soviet states, including, in particular, information on the acquisition and unguided anti-aircraft missiles and small arms (while he issued a report carelessly). Georgia was left in 2006, a net importer of weapons, continuing to heavily buy IWT.
According to the report in 2006, the main source of heavy weaponry to Georgia was the Czech Republic, from where it imported 35 major tanks T-72 (in addition to 35, from the Czechs in the 2005-meters), 12 self-propelled howitzers Dana caliber of 152 mm (in addition to 12 Purchased in 2003) and 30 towed howitzer D-30 caliber 122 mm (in addition to the 12 acquired in the 2001-meters). In Bosnia and Herzegovina was purchased 90 mortar shells Yugoslav production (15 120-mm, 25 82-mm and 50 mm caliber 60). In Ukraine, were acquired by a «system» (probably battery - four launchers) and 48 ZUR 9M33M3 man-portable missile system 9K33M3 «Osa-AKM», 64 easel anti-AGS-17 grenade fire 30 mm, 10 thousand AKM rifles, 11 , 7 thousand AK-74 machine guns and 53 PCs and PTP. Kazakhstan has received 758 PTUR 9M114 «Sturm-V» and the 5552 air unguided rockets S-5KPB caliber 57 mm (for the arms rotary-wing aircraft), and from Bulgaria - 450 ground PTUR 9M111 «Fagot» and 9M113 «Competition».
Looks strange entry in the Georgian record of the receipt of a training military attack plane Su-25UB, both exporting country (exporter state), and the country of origin (state of origin) plane itself serves Georgia. Perhaps the fact the aircraft purchased at the same Ukraine or the Czech Republic or in Macedonia. According to the report, Georgia in 2006 did not receive any helicopters, reported to the Ukrainian press and the Ukrainian left-wing politicians for the purchase of Georgians in Ukraine next batch of helicopters Mi-24 and Mi-8 (up to 13 units), and 40 T-72 and MANPADS «Buk».
The report of Georgia there is no mention of actually acquired in 2006 in Ukraine six aircraft L-39, as well as on imports from Bosnia and Herzegovina long-range 262-mm unguided rockets of M-87 Orkan.
Report of Azerbaijan contains information relevant to official figures of other States on the export of arms to the republic in 2006. Declared receive from Ukraine 17 T-72 tanks, three armored personnel carriers BTR-3U, 13 towed mortars PM-38 120-mm and 5 MiG-29 fighter jets, and from Belarus - an additional 41 T-72 tank.
As for the MiG-29, it is known to be a contract to supply the Air Force of Azerbaijan 12 overhauled and partly upgraded MiG-29 fighters and two training-combat MiG-29UB was «Ukrspetseksportom» at the end of 2005. The works are produced Lviv State Aircraft Repair Plant and CJSC «Fazotron-Ukraine» (Ukrainian branch of the Russian corporation «Fazotron-NIIR»). In fact, according to available information, Azerbaijan has received at the end of 2006 under this agreement, only two training military MiG-29UB, and the first five singles fighters arrived only in February-March 2007 th.
Pribaltov equips Europe
Estonia stated that he had received from Finland 21 earlier in the armament of the Finnish army armored Pasi XA-180 (the first 35 cars of the 60 ordered arrived in 2005).
Latvia declared receipt from Sweden 94 anti-aircraft missiles to the RBS-70 MANPADS, as well as large quantities of modern firearms: from Austria - 450 pistols Glock 17 9 mm, and from Germany - 100 submachine gun H & K UMG 9 mm, 1.4 Thousands of automatic rifles H & K AG-36-caliber 5.56 mm, 140 under-barrel grenade fire 40 mm to them, as well as 60 automatic 40-mm grenade launchers of anti easel H & K GMG.
Lithuania in 2006, received from Germany as soon as 200 decommissioned weapons Bundeswehr tracked M113 armored personnel carriers, American-made, as well as 22 self-mortar Tampella caliber 120 mm at their base. This brought the total number of M113 in the Lithuanian army to the impressive numbers 361 and 120-mm self-mortar - to 42. It should be noted that while Germany in their records indicated delivery to Lithuania, since 2000, only 310 armored personnel carrier M113 (including 30 for the dismantling of spare parts) and 42 self-mortar. In addition, from Norway in 2006, Lithuania was received by former minelayer Vidar built in 1977 to 27 June was put in the Lithuanian Navy as a ship management Jotvingis.
