Military Review

Russia moved to third place in the structure of world military spending

79
According to information RIA NewsThe Stockholm International Peace Research Institute (SIPRI) reported that US military spending in 2016 increased for the first time in five years (by 1,7%). The increase in defense spending continues for the second year in a row in Western, Central and Eastern Europe. Their significant reduction occurred in many oil-exporting countries.

Total global military spending in 2016 was 1686 billion, an increase of 2015% compared to 0,4. Gross global expenditures are equivalent to 2,2% of global GDP or 227 dollars per person. The growth of costs in the military sphere continues for the second year in a row.

The US continues to hold the lead. Their share in the structure of military spending over the past year was 36%. This is followed by China (13%). Russia (4,1%) ousted Saudi Arabia in fourth place (3,8%). India ranked seventh from 2015 to fifth position in 2016 (3,3%).



As noted in the SIPRI report, spending in general continues in Asia and Oceania, Western, Eastern and Central Europe, North America and North Africa.

Oil-exporting countries such as Saudi Arabia, Venezuela, South Sudan, Azerbaijan, and Iraq, which, according to experts, are due to a drop in oil revenues, have reduced spending on defense. A number of states have not affected this trend. These include Algeria, Iran, Kuwait and Norway.

              I agree. The hot war is won by the economy. A war in the head - a refrigerator. Although this is one and the same.

                ... want to live like that? ... Mitt Romney ran for US President
                "Our task is to force Russia to devour itself from within, introducing confusion and discord into the society of this country. What Mr. Navalny did not manage to do today - tomorrow many thousands of people like him will succeed.

                We will make the Russians take up arms. We will set up Chechens, Tatars, Bashkirs, Dagestanis against the Russians. We must make them fight each other. We are obliged to multiply actions aimed at discrediting the Orthodox Church in Russia. Patriarch Kirill can no longer cope with his hopes. He failed to deprive people of faith in God. He only managed to deprive people of faith in the Church.

                And, if none of the above works, we will have no choice but to declare a quick and victorious war on this country. I’m quick because three months after we stop buying gas and oil from this country, the government of President Putin will have nothing to pay wages to our military. And when we bring our troops into this country, there will be no one to defend it. Because we have long exterminated the spirit of patriotism in Russians, turning them into a nation of evil, petty, and envious non-people. We made them hate their country, hate each other, hate their own nation. There are no more Russians, we destroyed them. "
                We destroyed the USSR, we will destroy Russia, too, ”said US Presidential candidate Mitt Romney.

                understand a simple thing - in the 90s many negative processes and groups gained strength. They are a heavy burden, literally strangling the economy with overhead costs, monopoly margins, etc. Along the way, there is a degradation of education and all kinds of randomization of the ethnic group, so that people do not understand what is happening, what to do and with whom to do it. Therefore, getting rid of all these parasites - either quickly through a total civil war, or peacefully, but very slowly.
                See how hard it is to fight even just for the right head in the Duma on the example of the Air Defense Party.

        Wiskar, I’m wondering, do you know really poor politicians at the level of president / prime minister? otherwise I’m personally tired of reading about the multi-million dollar fortunes of non-Russian politicians who for some reason are perceived "as it should be" and some terrible surprise if they find our orders of magnitude lower. enlighten in this question pzhl.

          Politicians must live in accordance with their salary, which they have rather big. However, for some reason they have unaccounted for milons, and for whom billions

        Dear opponent Wiskar .
        There is no need to shake the Russian passport, do not be like Mr. Poroshenko. Most of us carry this passport in our pocket and live in this country without any problems. We probably know better than you, "what is good and what is bad", but for some reason we don’t dream to get Israeli ksiva for the most part. Do you like Israel? Rejoice at life, and we will no matter how we interrupt here. By the way, why do you need a Russian passport if this is not "secret"?

    The US continues to hold the lead. Their share in the structure of military spending over the past year was 36%. This is followed by China (13%). Russia (4,1%) ousted Saudi Arabia in fourth place (3,8%). India ranked seventh from 2015 to fifth position in 2016 (3,3%).
    And even the four countries taken together cannot catch up with the United States in terms of arms costs.

      The slogans of perestroika are still in everyday life. Then the perestroika were also screaming, handing it out to pensioners.
      History of Russian Ivan teaches nothing.
      Although, indeed, it is easier to hand out. Than to build new plants, to think which plant is more necessary, to calculate its efficiency and return.

    It is difficult to judge the structure of military expenditures in the United States if the Pentagon buys 7-dollar switches for 900, and toilets for 300 dollars for 18 thousand dollars. The budget cut is clearly visible. And so on many purchases. If the modernization of aircraft, or rather even completion, was initially estimated at $ 220 million, in the terminal it cost $ 1,4 billion. And so in many purchases of services and goods in the Pentagon. We probably also have some corruption, that’s why the American military budget can be conditionally divided by 5 for real purchases, and given that most of the money goes to support the entire infrastructure and pay salaries, in principle, their budget is comparable to ours and Chinese. I believe that Chinese in kind is even slightly larger than American.

    The re-equipment of the fleet and aviation, as I think, and of the rest of the armed forces. The saturation of their new technology according to the party’s line to modernize the army and prepare it for a network-centric war. Destroyers and planes, in general, recently launched their own aircraft carrier.
