MOSCOW, December 15 (Itar-Tass) — Prime Minister Vladimir Putin has branded as "inadmissible" statements made by the defense minister and chief of the general staff who said that Russian weapons were "uncompetitive," Putin declared at a question and answer session broadcast live by Russian television and radio channels on Thursday.
"I realize that you have been annoyed by a number of statements made by top brass officers from the defense ministry, including chief of general staff, who called the quality of Russian weapons into question, which incidentally is of detriment to foreign economic activities in the field of weapons trade," Putin said.
"The fact that they dare make such public statements is inadmissible," Putin stressed.
