Putin: Defense Companies Must Provide High Quality of Developments
Defense companies must begin to import substitution of components for weapons and military equipment, the main task – to provide high quality, which should exceed the foreign-made products, Russian President Vladimir Putin said on Thursday.
“OPK enterprises need to start import substitution of components for weapons and military equipment, and the task is not simply to replace imported products, although it is of course important, but the main thing is different. The important thing is that we must provide high quality of new developments,” Putin said it at a meeting on the state defense order.
He noted that much of what Russia had to import is already out of date. We have the objective opportunity to make advancing step. Our products must be higher than foreign production considering quality and price.
