The deputy defense minister said Ukraine had refused to supply components to Russian defense enterprises despite their contractual obligations, forcing Russia’s defense sector to start import substitution programs.

We set specific deadlines, persons responsible for this work and specified financing,” the deputy finance minister said.It was earlier speculated that the Russian industry would be stalled and would fail to fulfill its production plans, the deputy defense minister said. “The Russian industry is capable of producing everything,” he said.
