MOSCOW, August 28. /ITAR-TASS/. The implementation of the import substitution program in the military industrial sector may delay state contracts and supplies of new weapons and military equipment to troops beginning 2016, deputy head of the government's military industry commission Oleg Bochkaryov told ITAR-TASS on Thursday.
The implementation of the import substitution program will take time, and it will have an effect on state defense orders for 2016 and 2017, he said.
There will be no delays for most of the models of the military enginery, but some models may require additional two-three years of work, he said. "There are no such decisions so far. It will be clear in about a year, by mid-2015, no earlier. Nothing is postponed so far," he added.
