    The security and defense situation in Russia is stable thanks to the state's defense spending, among other things, Russian Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev said Thursday.

    MOSCOW (Sputnik) — In 2015, the Russian national defense spending had a record growth of the post-soviet time, surpassing 28 percent.

    "When we speak about the growth of government spending on defense, we realize that it is not only for the Defense Ministry and servicemen, but also for the development of the entire country, ensuring its security and defense capability," Medvedev told Russian television channels, commenting on the growth of state defense spending.
