MOSCOW, April 13 – RIA Novosti. The amount of funds allocated for the new state armaments program will not decrease and will amount to 21-22 trillion rubles, said Andrei Yelchaninov, first deputy chairman of the board of the Military-Industrial Commission (MIC) of the Russian Federation.
“We are guided by the fact that the financial indicators of the new state program, despite all the peculiarities of the economic situation in the country, will not be less in absolute terms. The provision of a similar state program for the period 2010-2020 amounted to 21.2 trillion rubles. The current state program (2018-2027) years) – 21.7 trillion rubles. Based on these dynamics, we expect the level of the new state armaments program at a level not lower than 21-22 trillion rubles, “Yelchaninov said in an interview with Rossiyskaya Gazeta.
