MOSCOW, November 17. /TASS/. Russian President Vladimir Putin has signed a decree on Tuesday to put into effect the Russian defense plan for 2016-2020. The document is posted on the official portal of legal information.
"For the purposes of implementing activities in the sphere of defense ... I hereby resolve to put into effect from 1 January 2016 the Russian Federation’s defense plan for 2016-2020," the document says.
The decree, dated November 16, entered into force upon signature.
Previously, Russian army’s Chief of the General Staff Valery Gerasimov said that effective response to challenges and threats to Russia’s national security requires close interaction of the authorities not only in the military sphere, as Western countries use the "new forms of confrontation," combining military with non-military means.
According to the chief of the General Staff, it is possible to fend off challenges and threats to national security "only in close interaction of the bodies of state power in the course of fulfilling tasks in the political, diplomatic, economic, military, informational, social and other spheres."
