MOSCOW, December 27 (Itar-Tass) — Russian Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev believes that the efficient spending of budget funds for the state defence order will make it possible to reequip the Russian troops in 2013-2015. Medvedev has made a statement to this effect at a governmental meeting on Thursday.
He noted that at its Thursday meeting the Russian Cabinet will debate a draft state defence order for 2013–2015. “For its fulfilment quite and quite massive funds are allocated from the federal budget, meanwhile, the monetary funds are concentrated on the priorities of military-technical and material supplies for the Russian Armed Forces, and the state defence order is linked closely with the main strategies of defence and civilian industries of the domestic economy,” Medvedev said.
The prime minister added that technical and computerized equipment of the state automated system for the assessment of financial technological risks were used for the first time this year. “We hope for the efficient use of the funds allocated under the effect of the new federal law on the state defence order will make it possible to resolve one of the main tasks – to reequip our troops with modern and highly efficient military hardware,” Medvedev said in conclusion.
