MOSCOW, December 24. /TASS/. The Russian army in 2018 received more than 1,500 weapon titles and more than 80,000 pieces of military equipment, Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu said on Monday.
"All in all we received more than 1,500 weapon titles and more than 80,000 pieces of military equipment. This is a tremendous amount. We’ve achieved a level of modern military equipment of 61.5%. A rate as high is not observed in any other army of the world," Shoigu said at a meeting of the Defense Ministry’s Public Council.
