MOSCOW, October 3. /TASS/. Russia’s Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev said expenses for the country’s armed forces are reasonable and necessary, including for the tasks like the mission in Syria.
"We are protecting the Russian people from the threat of terrorism, as it is better done abroad than fighting terrorism inside this country," he said in an interview with Rossiya 24 television broadcaster on Saturday.
"Those expenses are reasonable in the current situation in this country, and they also are necessary for the reforming of our armed forces," the prime minister said. "Those expenses, the budget expenses are quite sufficient for carrying out certain military missions like the Russian military continue in Syria now.".
