The development plan of the military townships was worked out and is being fulfilled for 2013-2014 and for a future period until 2017, meanwhile, the document has concrete deadlines and resources. The military command system in the Armed Forces is being improved. “For the first time in the Defence Ministry it is planned to create a vertically integrated multilevel system of automated control,” Shoigu noted.
