MOSCOW, February 27 (Itar-Tass) – Russian President Vladimir Putin instructed the Defence Ministry to present a new version of the military planning regulations to him for approval.
“In the near future we should finalize the creation of an integral system of strategic planning in the military sphere,” Putin said at a meeting of the Russian Defence Ministry board on Wednesday. “In particular, I instruct the Defence Ministry to present a new version of the military planning regulations to me for approval,” Putin said.
“Meanwhile, the General Staff will outline the basic approaches, the ideology for building up the country’s defence for a period from 2016 to 2020. Within next two years this plan should be elaborated in all details,” the president remarked.
He recalled that the Russian Defence Plan until 2015 was approved last January. This plan contains a forecast of development of the military and political situation. Meanwhile, the document has formed a common idea about the defence plan of the country, including military, economic, information and other aspects. The Russian Defence Plan also set the main tasks for strategic deterrence and prevention of military conflicts and the settlement of main mobilization issues.
