MOSCOW, July 31. /TASS/. The program of import substitution of military equipment from Ukraine will be more than 50% completed by the end of 2015, a Russian Defense Ministry spokesman told journalists on Friday.
He reminded that two import substitution programs are currently being implemented in Russia’s defense industry - to replace equipment from Ukraine and NATO countries.
"Both programs are being implemented. Talking about Ukraine, elements will be replaced by 53% by the end of the year, these are spare parts. If we are talking about equipment, then it will be around 67%," the spokesman said.
