The gun maker Kalashnikov will soon sell clothes. Kalashnikov makes the famous AK-47 rifle. It must make different things because many countries have stopped buying Russian weapons. This is because of events in Ukraine. Kalashnikov plans to open 60 clothes stores across Russia by the end of this year.
Kalashnikov is not the first Russian arms company to sell clothes. A tank maker started in 2014. Kalashnikov said it would still make a lot of money from guns. It wants to double the sales of guns by 2017. It will also make at least 10 new products. Kalashnikov's clothes will sell well in Russia.
