Russia Capable of Producing Military Hardware Independently


Russia can independently manufacture all the military products it needs, but sometimes it is not feasible from the economic perspective. This was stated by Russia’s Deputy Defence Minister Yury Borisov in an interview with Rossiya-24 TV channel.

“The Russian industry is capable of manufacturing all the products. It’s just that sometimes it is not economically feasible, but we must always remember that the issue of technological safety is the most important one,” Mr. Borisov pointed out, noting that Russia has started working on an import substitution program so as not to put the army and the industry in an uncertain situation.

“The Defence Ministry has analyzed all weapons systems that are somehow dependent on the supply of Ukrainian products and has determined specific deadlines, responsible persons, and funds,” Mr. Borisov concluded.
