Referring to the supplies of modern equipment to the army, Putin said that today the share of new armaments in the country’s strategic nuclear forces has already reached 55%, in the Air Force - about 35% and in the Navy - more than 50%, and in the ground forces the armoured and automobile equipment has been almost 70% renewed.
The president also said that combat skills of Russian troops have been considerably improved, which has been confirmed by snap checks in the forces and units and the results of more than 3,000 military exercises of various level.Referring to the work of security services and law enforcement agencies, Putin praised the efforts of the agencies’ officers that since the beginning of the year have prevented 58 terrorism-related crimes, including 8 terrorist attacks. “It is necessary to continue this decisive and professional work to promptly suppress the activity of those who encroach upon the foundations of Russia’s constitutional system, call for violence, national hatred and religious strife,” Putin said.
According to him, it is necessary to improve the current antiterrorism system under the aegis of the National Antiterrorist Committee (NAC) and introduce new methods of fighting the terrorism threat.
