    And you won’t find it. The scourge of the press services of both the commander of the Strategic Missile Forces and the Ministry of Defense lies in the fact that they blurt out everything that comes to hand, without thinking at all in what light they are exposing their leadership.
    Even the Wikipedia figure you cited is overpriced. A more real figure will be if the above 400 are divided by about one and a half
