Indonesia is considering procuring Russian submarines as part of a two year inter-state military and technical cooperation worth $3 billion to $5 billion.


Russian Industry and Trade Minister Denis Manturov met with new Indonesian President Joko Widodo and said, “Our Indonesian counterparts have raised this issue for the first time,” the minister said. “We are ready to discuss and develop this area.”


Another issue under discussion concerns cooperation in military supplies, Manturov said. “Indonesia already has experience in purchasing our equipment — helicopters, planes, armored vehicles and other items,” he said. "We are considering the possibility of supplying the Project 636 diesel-electric submarines (to Indonesia).”
