MOSCOW, February 26. /TASS/. The plan for rearming the Russian army and navy by 2020 is being implemented 50% ahead of time, Deputy Prime Minister Dmitry Rogozin told the Federation Council on Friday.
"We keep the situation under control from the standpoint of implementing the state program for armaments extending till 2020," he said. "We are ahead of time. Instead of rearming the Russian Armed Forces, including the Arctic Strategic Command by 30% we have achieved 47% implementation. In other words, we are 50% ahead of our own targets."
Rogozin thanked the Russian parliament for supporting the defense budget in this no easy economic period. He recalled once again it was utterly impermissible to ineffectively use budget funds. Instances of corruption were rare, he remarked.
