MOSCOW, March 20. /ITAR-TASS/. Development plans of Russian Armed Forces will be adjusted over reunification of Crimea and the Crimean city of Sevastopol with Russia, Russian Deputy Defense Minister Yuri Borisov told reporters on Thursday.
“Certainly, it is needed to develop military infrastructure on this peninsula so that Crimea will be a worthy representative of the Russian Federation and will be protected from all possible encroachments,” Borisov said.
The Defence Ministry and the Russian people assume responsibility for carrying out these tasks.
“On one hand, this is the victory and on the other hand, these are huge obligations before the Crimean people. We cannot lose face in front of the whole world to allow it to stumble at our possibilities. What a hope!” the deputy minister said.
In recent years the ministry has exerted effort to develop the Black Sea Fleet in order to support shiprepairing enterprises in Crimea. “Today their fate will be revised. We uphold them and increase orders,” Borisov said.
