Xinhua News: Russia’s Defense Ministry is responsible for weapons Vice Minister Vladimir Popovkin general conference on the 5th in reporters openly stated: 2009 to 2011 Russia’s defense procurement funding will not be cut, one quarter of The funds will be used for strategic nuclear forces modernization upgrade. Russia’s “view” site 5, this broadcast entitled “Hope missiles” in a signed article, as follows:
Turning to the 2011 and 2020 national plan for the development of equipment work, wave Bove said Kim, plans for the future of military spending to eliminate the military structure and equipment maintenance costs imbalance problem. By 2011 the proportion will reach the same level between the two, that is 50% each. By 2015, the ratio between the two will become 30% more than 70%, that is, 70 percent of military expenditures for the purchase of new sophisticated weapons.
Popovkin said that 2009 to 2011 defense procurement will amount to 1.5 trillion rubles (about $ 42 billion), will not cut. This seems to be a huge number, but this amount has been set last year due to inflation (in 2008 inflation rate of 10% -11%) and greatly diminished. Inflation is still rising, according to the most conservative estimates, this year will reach 15%, taking into account this factor, it is hard to believe that three years of military procurement funding is not cut.
The good news is that finally the real large sum of money will be put into the military departments. It is now vital to ensure that the money to go to the “end user” – the hands of weapons and equipment producers. China has always been a lot of problems in this area, although has been attempting to reverse this unfavorable situation.
Although Popovkin vowed that in 2009 15% of the order shall have been advanced to the national defense military enterprises, but to grasp the message, according to the newspaper, part of the military enterprises have not received the third quarter of 2008. delivery of funds.
Jinjie Shao, according to Popov in 2009, the Air Force will buy 50 new planes. The figures are not questioned, according to the model is also very easy to assign. Algeria to return 24 MiG-29CM T will account for half the order. There are eight fighters Su-27CM, is upgrading the 2007 contract, the new fighter. 6-8 frame upgraded Su-25CH 10-12 attack aircraft upgraded Su-24M 2 front-line bomber. Only two Su -34 bombers are completely new, program delivery this year.
Popovkin general focus on the strategic rocket forces and the development of maritime strategic nuclear forces, a quarter of the cost of defense procurement will be used for both the modern upgrades. He first promised this year, repeated failures of the “Bulava-M” submarine-launched missiles will be fitted out, this need for more tests.
than the “Bulava” is much more important question is about this year’s strategic rocket soldiers will add more than 10 intercontinental ballistic missile launchers reported.
director of the equipment mentioned in the speech development of space defense weapons systems, Russia is not accidental, he explicitly warned that: “No matter what country would like to deploy weapons in space, Russia would oppose.” Although the United States and China have had a successful anti-satellite weapons test, there is no doubt that China is so far the only “anti-satellite weapons” performance and can be manufactured within a reasonable period the country. Unique in the world of A-36 anti-missile system is an example.
