Defense Ministry: armament program grows 1.5 time

In 2013 this sector took 37%, while in 2015 it makes 62%.

Today these expenses are not subject to sequestrating, being a priority for the modern army.

On the decree of President Putin the share of sophisticated armaments by 2020 must amount at least 70%.

The volume of state order in this sector for 2015 is almost 20% bigger than it was in 2014.
