MOSCOW, July 29 (Itar-Tass) - The state defence order in 2013 has been formed by more than 85%, Russian President Vladimir Putin said on Monday.
“As for the state defence order in 2013, over 85% of all tasks have already been placed,” the president said, noting that this is not bad in general.
Putin noted that such modern strategic missile carriers as Alexander Nevsky and Vladimir Monomakh, as well as the head nuclear-powered underwater cruiser Severodvinsk are to be commissioned this year. “All this is the military hardware of new generation, and it is needed to develop and modernize an appropriate coastal infrastructure for it to function efficiently,” Putin said.
He asked those officials present at the meeting to report about the progress of work for the creation of this infrastructure. “Are there just the plans of construction? I do not see them,” the Russian president underlined.
