The gun maker Kalashnikov will soon sell clothes. Kalashnikov is one of Russia's most famous companies. It makes the AK-47 rifle. The company said it must make different things because the USA and European countries have stopped buying Russian weapons. This was because of events in Ukraine. Kalashnikov will make 'military style' casual clothes. The company also 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 selling T-shirts, jackets, shoes and bags in 2014. The Kalashnikov CEO said his company would still make most of its money from guns. He wants to double the sales of guns by 2017. He added that the company would start making at least 10 new products. Kalashnikov's clothes could sell well because Russians want to support their country.
