MOSCOW, July 5 (Itar-Tass) - Russia will increase the number of cruise missile fivefold within the next three years and thirtyfold by 2020, Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu told reporters Friday upon the end of a meeting of Russia’s Security Council.

“The number of our cruise missiles will to up five times versus the current number over the next three years and thirty times by 2020,” he said.

Security Council Secretary Nikolai Patrushev, who mentioned the role of nuclear deterrence forces, said on his part “they fulfill the tasks vested in them reliably but we should take account of the whole array of newest armaments existing today.”

He admitted that Russia has fallen behind other leading military powers in some areas and the defense industries now have the task of eliminating that gap.
