Russian President Vladimir Putin promised on Tuesday to "please" Russia's competitors with new developments in the field of defense and security.

DVORIKI (Sputnik) — Putin said during an educational youth forum:

"We are yet to delight our partners and competitors with our latest developments in the field of defense and security. But what we will show — and here we will not be keeping secrets forever — will be used in civilian industries one way or another."

In June, Putin said that Russia's defense industry must drive innovation, as forward-thinking is especially important for the fields of energy, engineering, communication and microelectronics, which are major sources of economic growth.

"Any discoveries, achievements, developments in the military field for the needs of defense and security, sooner or later become the property of civilian industry sectors. The Internet was developed in this way," the Russian leader said.
