    ZVO is now at the forefront of confrontation ... it’s good that rearmament is in full swing ... you need to be prepared ... including on the agenda of the next "1941" ... and this is no longer funny ...

    It’s not sickly for us that the military-industrial complex pulled by indicators.
    But this is all new, for which you need new equipment,
    equipment, technology and qualifications.
    And it’s all that little is produced, it’s also being finalized from party to party.
