Russian President Vladimir Putin has announced a large-scale effort to build capabilities to produce more weapons for the war in Ukraine.
Putin said the increase in weapons production was “urgently needed” and assured that special attention would be paid to legalities and the allocation of funds for the initiative when speaking to the advice of the Russian Prosecutor General’s Office on Wednesday ( 15).
“Firstly, in terms of timely fulfillment of obligations to supply weapons, equipment and ammunition necessary for the needs of the special military operation, for the accurate implementation of all tasks of the state defense order and the effective use of budgetary resources,” he said, using the euphemism for the full-scale invasion of Ukraine.
According to Putin, the government is allocating a lot of resources to defense needs “without prejudice to other areas”. But the funds “must be spent rationally, in strict compliance with the law,” he added.
“Furthermore, prosecutors must oversee the modernization of defense industry enterprises, including building capabilities to produce additional weapons. A lot of effort is being made here. We need it urgently now and it will come in handy in the future,” he said.
Putin said Russia was on a positive path and “strengthening the sovereignty” of the country.
“We are with you at the stage of positive and large-scale changes aimed at strengthening the country’s sovereignty, its independence, the future of Russia and creating conditions for its confident development,” Putin said.
