MOSCOW, January 13. /TASS/. The Russian Defense Ministry will work out a new defense plan for the next few years, Minister Sergey Shoigu said.

“We must draw up a new plan for defense of the Russian Federation for 2016-2020 and ensure timely placing and obligatory fulfillment of state defense orders in 2015 to have modern models of weapons and military equipment as planned,” he said.

The minister said Russian troops will receive about 700 armoured vehicles and almost 1,550 other vehicles, 126 planes, 88 helicopters and two Iskander-M missile systems this year. The Navy will receive two multi-purpose submarines and five surface warships.

In 2015 a radar station Voronezh-DM will be placed into service in Yeniseisk, Siberia, a year ahead of schedule, and another such station will begin operating in Barnaul, the Altai region, six month ahead of schedule, Shoigu added.
