MIL OSI Translation. Region: Russian Federation –
The Russian Armed Forces have the highest percentage of modern weapons and military equipment among the armies of the world – almost 71%. This statement was made today by the Minister of Defense of the Russian Federation Sergei Shoigu during his trip to the Rostov region.
“Today everyone – some with anger, some with approval, understand and state that the Russian army has more than 70 percent, or more precisely, almost 71 percent of modern weapons and equipment. This is the highest percentage among all the armies in the world, “Sergei Shoigu said at a meeting with the staff of the Rostvertol company.
“If we talk about the Strategic Nuclear Forces,” the minister noted, “the level of modernity is more than 80 percent. 83 percent are strategic nuclear forces, which form the backbone of the nuclear deterrence system, our nuclear shield. “
According to Sergei Shoigu, here it is necessary to speak with gratitude about Russian scientists, designers who, in timelessness, managed to preserve their scientific potential, and much more in order to make the leap that our president said in 2018 during his message to the Federal Assembly …
The Minister noted that over the past eight to nine years, the situation in the Armed Forces and the attitude towards the army have been radically changed.
“But the most important thing is, of course, the armament, equipment, training and development of the Armed Forces of the Russian Federation as one of the most modern armies in the world. And no one has any doubts about this today. If nine years ago we were told that regular cans were taken to the parade, there is nothing in them, and there will be no sense from this, no one talks about this today, ”Sergei Shoigu stressed.
