IZHEVSK, September 19. /TASS/. The strategic objective of the Russian defense industry is to provide timely and comprehensive supplies to troops conducting the special military operation, Russian President Vladimir Putin said at a meeting of the Russian Defense Industry Commission.
"Today, as the first order of business, we will analyze whether this year's deliveries of the most needed weapons, military and special equipment were on schedule, as well as identify priority tasks for 2024. The issue is extremely important, urgent and directly related to the accomplishment of the strategic objective: the timely and comprehensive supplies for troops participating in the special military operation," the president stated.
