Kalashnikov includes military style clothing line to endure sanctions

Mr. Dmitriev kept in mind that an iconic company like Ferrari makes 10 percent of its benefit from clothing. To offer reporters an idea of just how burdensome sanctions have actually been to Kalashnikov’s bottom line, he told BBC May 6 that 70 percent of its searching and sporting weapons were offered in Europe and the United States previous to 2014.

A spokesman for Kalashnikov told RBTH that executives are considering October as an initial rollout for clothing and devices.

Kalashnikov USA of Tullytown, Pennsylvania, used to import the weapons prior to sanctions but was required to cut ties with the company in 2014. The company has since moved to Pompano Beach, Florida, where it bills itself as an American manufacturer of Kalashnikov-brand weapons, CNN reported Jan. 27.
