SOCHI, May 13. /TASS/. The proportion of state-of-the-art weapons in Russia’s strategic nuclear forces has reached 82%, Russian President Vladimir Putin said on Monday.

"In the recent years, we have made a serious progress in this area. Thus, the proportion of advanced weapons in the strategic nuclear forces has reached 82% This index stands at 74% in the aerospace forces, exceeds 60% in the airborne forces and the navy, and is nearly 50% in the land troops," he said when opening a regular series of government meetings on the development of the defense sector.

The president noted that the Russian armed forces have enough potential to perform their combat duties but stressed the importance of developing state-of-the-art weapons systems based on cutting-edge technologies.
