          But essentially, what do you disagree with without “coffee grounds”? Would you like to argue that the budget has been reduced by this figure or to prove that our economy has been growing since the 14th year? What specifically did the figures do not please you?

            Where did the Stockholm Institute get the exact data on the Top Secret Data, the exact knowledge of the expenses and what exactly affected them or did not affect them at all? These are classified data. You are ready to believe such conclusions, reminiscent of the well-known expressions that have become common to all LIKELY and RELATED.

            It is more interesting in essence what became clear to YOU ​​and from what reliable sources that you have no doubt about.

              What other "secret", stop nonsense to write laughing It is possible to classify the ARTICLES of expenses, but the total amount cannot be hidden. It is simply technically impossible. Therefore, the Swedes do not lie. They take open data and summarize them. That's all. And you are trying to prove here that the spending on the military has not changed, referring to the mysterious "secrecy".

              Russia's military budget in 2018 will be $ 46 billion
              Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu said at a final meeting of the ministry with the participation of President Vladimir Putin that the military budget for 2018 will be $ 46 billion. “The military budget is balanced, meets the needs of the armed forces, and will make 2,8% of GDP, or $ 46 billion next year ...... Vladimir Putin called on the military to rely on intelligence, discipline and organization, as military spending will continue to decrease. “Next year, coming, as a percentage of GDP it will be two and eight with a small 2,85%, in my opinion. Then, little by little, it will even decrease, ”the president said. Https: //www.kommersant.ru/doc/3507257

      Not good, not very good. The defense budget only needs to be increased, or do we have the most powerful fleet, or fifth-generation planes have done more NATO, are there more submarines than the "exceptional" ones? All of our super weapons so far are only in single instances, so far there is nothing to fight. Patriotism is good, but hundreds of the latest aircraft, tanks, air defense and missile defense systems are needed, the same Ash-trees need 20 pieces, thousands of Caliber. Syria is a small country and how much we are already busy, and if a more serious conflict of modern weapons is not enough.

      large investments in projects of PAK FA, Armata and several others completed
      debts were significantly reduced, the army was re-equipped.
      there is no ceiling in expenses, but why rush there? it’s time to start spending the costs on internal problems, especially since these problems are no less than a military external threat.

      Are you worried about the Americans? Millions of traitors have grown up in our school. Here is the army that threatens our country.

      Due to the fact that America has privatized the defense industry, business can make a profit from the invasion and occupation of foreign countries, and the billionaires who control these corporations buy Congress and the president to keep these revenues for themselves. Former President of America Eisenhower back in 1959, in his farewell speech, said: The most dangerous force in the United States that poses a threat to the whole world is the military-industrial complex.

Global change in the production of the matrix of goods (stop the senseless production of products that are 1% better than the previous ones). About half of the planet’s GDP is now thrown into the trash. Then you can do ecology, sociology and genetics.

      Everything goes according to plan. In 2011, a plan was adopted to restore the Armed Forces of the Russian Federation, until 2020.
      To upgrade military equipment and weapons to 70 -80%, for which 22,5 trillion rubles were allocated. Updating is according to the schedule. In 2017, they adopted the military budget for the next 10 years = 17,5 trillion rubles. That is, fewer funds, in view of the remaining 30-20% before a 2020% renewal, and starting in XNUMX, the gradual transfer of some production capacities of the military-industrial complex to civilian or dual-use products. Therefore, of course, the annual budget of the RF Ministry of Defense is also decreasing.
      The difference between 22 and 17 will go to social science and science. What GDP stated. yes

    It seems that the reason is that many tasks have been completed (at least research and design), and probably the production ones have remained: the release of new equipment as part of the state defense order.

    Elegantly Americans settled down, printing, worthless pieces of paper, the whole world is changing goods and services for them. World private printing factory ... They will protect it until the last of their stinking breath, at any cost and their military budget will be limited only to overheating of printing equipment

      About Russia, you can say the words of a classic:
      Ah, it’s not difficult to deceive me! .. I’m glad to be deceived myself!

      Fear of shameless armed intervention in sovereign affairs stops weak states in confronting this hydra. But !!! There was a ma-ah-ah-little hope that the age of the dollar is coming to an end.

      "And what good is the savings." They will allocate for significant projects, the modernization of BAMA, the construction of high-speed railways, rolling stock, factories, nuclear power plants, state district power stations, thermal power plants, the purchase of agricultural equipment, astronautics, medicine, science and much more, all the same, 861 billion rubles are not small money.

    It is necessary to reduce the cost of maintaining officials and reduce their number. You can reduce security companies by transferring them to the Ministry of Emergencies ... To abolish the Pension Fund by transferring functions to the administration. Yes ... investments in US debt - am - on the "celery" ...

    The animator of All Russia is clearly gaining on the honorary citizenship of the United States after the next prizednoy term. Judge for yourself: cartoons showed !? - showed! The Senate scared !? - scared! Friend Trump knocked out through this increase in budget !? - knocked out! (Go and rollback got like our entire military budget) Goals are achieved. It is possible to reduce the military budget, if God forbid the cartoons did not become true, and the “Almaty” with “boomerangs” and other Su-57s did not go into the troops ...

    We should be on the drum, what the whole world thinks about us. The world should be very afraid to do any dirty tricks of Russia, then and only then they will begin to respect, not to mention that they would arrange some sort of sanctions.

    True words, dear. hi Streams of "truth-seeking" without the use of force look humiliating. Reducing the "military" budget on the part of the figures of the "RF" looks champion stupidity. World resources are growing in value. Those who want to fight breed at the borders of Russia as .... Russia is unambiguously threatened by both "hegemons" and East European "toy terriers." ... And the budget sawmill reduces the most necessary - the cost of the army. Bismarck was right about "Your every trick ...". Only the Russians have nothing to do with it.

    Where did the Stockholm Institute get the exact data on the Top Secret Data, the exact knowledge of the expenses and what exactly affected them or did not affect them at all? These are classified data.

    Do we still have something secret? laughing Who do you want to convince us that everything is fine? Yourself?
