SOCHI, May 12. /TASS/. Russian President Vladimir Putin on Thursday will hold another meeting with the Russian military and executives of defense-related enterprises on the development of Russia’s defense sector.
Putin’s press secretary Dmitry Peskov said earlier e series of such meetings that started on Tuesday would be continued daily until Friday when the final such meeting is to be held.
This is the seventh such series. According to Peskov, Putin conducts such meetings approximately twice a year in Sochi to dedicate more time to learn more about the state of things in the Russian defense sector and look for ways to solve its problems.
Putin said such a format of meetings, which was first introduced in 2013, justifies itself. More than 200 orders were formulated during these consultations and over 150 of them were implemented, while the others are being fulfilled in due time.
The first meeting of the series was held on Tuesday to discuss the results of using Russia’s Aerospace Forces and Navy in the anti-terrorism operation in Syria. On Wednesday, the meeting was focused on the promising high-precision weapons which, according to the Russian president, account for 70% of funds of the relative state program.
