Russia’s new state arms procurement program through to 2025 will be developed by 2015, Deputy Chief of the General Staff Maj. Gen. Igor Sheremet said on Thursday.
In 2010, a 10-year arms procurement program was adopted, until 2020.
“The state arms program is developed for a 10-year term,” he said in an interview with the Rossia 24 TV channel.
“This means that we are to develop a state arms procurement program through 2025 not later than in 2015.”
The program will be developed by the Military Analysis Committee of the Armed Forces, which is already “looking into 2030 and further on,” he said.
