16:16, February 01, 2013

MOSCOW, Jan. 30 (Xinhua) -- Russia has started to develop an armament program that will last until 2025, Deputy Prime Minister Dmitry Rogozin said Wednesday.

"We are starting work on the new state armament program for 2016-2025," Rogozin, head of the government's military-industrial commission, said in his Twitter account.

The program forecasts national security threats for Russia for a 30-year period. It also calculates the military-technical and economic environment for the next 10 years, according to the official.

Rogozin said that the military-industrial commission would work on such areas as equipping its soldiers with the newest weapons.

The commission would also focus on developing airplanes, exploring space, and establishing a robotic combat system.

The government will allocate over 20 trillion rubles (668 billion U.S. dollars) for the program until 2020 and an extra three trillion rubles (100 billion dollars) for modernizing the defense sector, Rogozin said.
