Acting President and Prime Minister Vladimir Putin held a meeting of the Government Military-Industrial Commission

January 14, 2000, The Government House, Moscow

The meeting’s agenda included the structure of the state defence order for 2000, whose volume increased 1.5 times compared to last year. It is planned to invest 62 billion roubles in research and development alone. The government has significantly increased allocations for military hardware for general purpose forces due to the current situation in the Chechen Republic and on the international arena.

The participants also touched on the perspectives of military and technical cooperation with China and India.
