MOSCOW, July 16 /TASS/. The production of new weapons is not just a matter of defense capability. It will guarantee the country’s economic growth, Russian President Vladimir Putin said at an event held as part of the single weapons acceptance day on Thursday.
"The production of new weapons and military hardware is not just a matter of defense capability which, of course, is extremely important. We have already started allocating funds for this purpose. But it is also linked to economic development, support for new technologies and preservation of employment levels in the Russian economy," the Russian president said.
According to Putin, the solution of all these tasks will largely define the social climate at Russian defense enterprises and in scientific collectives.
