MOSCOW, October 15 (Itar-Tass) - National defense spending in the 2014 draft budget was increased insignificantly, "by hundredths of a percent", chairman of the Federation Council Committee on Defense and Security Viktor Ozerov said on Tuesday.

“Despite challenges faced while forming the federal budget, spending for national defense as well as security and law enforcement has been increased as compared to 2013,” he said. However, “these are hundredths of a percent”, he added. “Funds for realization of state armament programs in 2014 and the following years have been included in the entire amount,” Ozerov said.

“At the same time, the committee’s conclusion says a change of budget plan is needed to replenish insufficient funds for clothing, food, utilities and fuels and lubricants,” he said.
