    Russia’s state arms procurement program for the year 2015 will be 100 percent complete, the chief executive of the Central Research Institute of Precision Machine Building (TsNIITochMash) aeronautics and space agency said Wednesday.

    KLIMOVSK (Sputnik) – "Speaking of this year’s state arms procurement, it will certainly be 100 percent completed," Dmitry Semizorov told RIA Novosti in an interview.

    TsNIITochMash supplies weapons, ammunition, combat equipment kits, and electronic equipment as part of its procurement program, Semizorov said.

    Deputy Defense Minister Yuri Borisov said this spring that the remaining 3 percent of Russia’s 2014 arms procurement program would be fulfilled in the third and fourth quarters of this year.

    Russia's 2016-2025 arms procurement program focuses on the development of purely defensive high-precision weaponry in the country. President Vladimir Putin’s wider 2011-2020 program focuses on developing the technology base for air and space defense.
