MOSCOW, November 21. /TASS/. Russia is pushing ahead with routine efforts to upgrade its armed forces, so no arms race with other countries is underway, Russian Deputy Foreign Minister Sergey Ryabkov said, when asked how one should regard the testing of new armaments in Russia.
“Everything that is being done in the sphere of testing new military hardware is being done in compliance with our liabilities. If there have been unexpected for other countries, this means that these activities are not covered by any liabilities and we are not obliged to notify others,” Ryabkov noted.
“No arms race is going on. A routine upgrade of the combat composition of the three components of Russia’s armed forces is in progress,” he said.
