MOSCOW, January 14. /ITAR-TASS/. Russia’s Defense Ministry in 2013 96 percent fulfilled the state defense order in the sphere of research and development and 93 percent fulfilled the order in the sphere of acquisition of armaments, military and special equipment, RF Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu said at a conference call on Tuesday.
“The state defense order in 2013 in the sphere of research and development was 96 percent fulfilled, and it was 93 percent fulfilled in the sphere of acquisition of armaments, military and special equipment, and 91 percent fulfilled in the sphere of equipment maintenance. It’s a serious achievement,” he said.
“I would like on behalf of the Defense Ministry to thank the defense industry complex that has improved the quality of products,” the minister continued. “We have a considerable increase in the deliveries of armaments: we have received 1.7 times more equipment than in 2012. At the same time, the number of deficiency reports does not exceed last year’s level.”
“We should make efforts to further reduce their number, and much depends here on the military acceptance procedure,” Shoigu added, noting that the restoration of its standards at defense industry enterprises was an important task.
