Russia needs diversity in military gear production - Putin

Tuesday, 24. December 2019 16:35

Russian President Vladimir Putin stated on Tuesday that the diversification of military equipment production in the country is at an insufficient level.

Speaking at a meeting with the leaders of the Federation Council and the State Duma, he suggested the companies from the military-industrial complex need to consider the idea of diversification since they "sit on a defense order and that's all."

Earlier today, Russian Defense Minister Sergey Shoygu said that Avangard hypersonic missiles will "assume combat duty" this week, while Military Industrial Company announced it will design its own combat module for its armored military vehicles.
