SOCHI, May 12. /TASS/. Russian President Vladimir Putin urged high quality for domestic products manufactured as part of the import substitution program.
"I am once again turning your attention to the necessity of providing high quality for new products, including those manufactured as part of the import substitution [program]," Putin said addressing a session on the development of the defense industrial sector.
