Russia once again entered the top five world leaders in defense spending - SIPRI report


Military spending increased in the world in 2019 compared to the previous year by 3,6 percent. At the same time, Russia managed to enter the top five in this indicator.


This was announced today by the Stockholm International Peace Institute (SIPRI).

The study notes that the Russian Federation spent more than $ 65 billion on military needs, which is 3,9 percent of Russia's GDP. In the world ranking, she took fourth place after the United States, China and India, ahead of Saudi Arabia, which took fifth place in the world.

The expenditures of these countries amounted to 62 percent of the military budget of the planet. At the same time, US spending on strengthening the defense exceeds the total figure of four other leaders and is at around $ 732 billion. Global defense spending in 2019 reached $ 1,9 trillion, the highest ever history humanity.

This year Germany showed a noticeable growth, having increased its defense spending by 10 percent, explaining this by the growth of the Russian military threat. But, of course, she is very far from Saudi Arabia, which increased military spending last year by as much as 16 percent.

A year earlier, in 2018, Russia occupied the sixth line of the rating with the amount of expenses, according to SIPRI, 61,4 billion dollars. Then our country reduced its defense budget by 3,5 percent.

          The occupation authorities have no money for this, get out yourself as you like. But after 18 years of age, your child, kindly, bring him to the military enlistment office in order to return the debt to the state for not strangling him in childhood and giving him a chance to survive.

      Moscow clearly grasped signals coming from Japan - the response to the provocation was immediate. The Russian military organized a Pacific throw; in the waters of the Japanese and Okhotsk seas and the Pacific Ocean, the Pacific Fleet’s most extensive exercises in the region over the past few years have passed. The maneuvers involved about 20 warships and auxiliary vessels, as well as aviation. Apparently, Tokyo was surprised by a similar reaction from Moscow. They assumed that an answer would follow, but hardly anyone expected to see such powerful forces in the Sea of ​​Japan. The combat units of the Russian Navy completed rocket and artillery firing, as well as anti-submarine operations.

        Of course I was surprised. They were supposed to see the fleet, not the flotilla. The so-called Pacific Fleet is a miserable sight. If it were not for 2 Boreas in Vilyuchinsk, then in general he could have been left out of account.

      Our country has many "friends".

      Historical tradition however. 'Friends', God forgive me, it is useful to remember other historical traditions ...

        Welcome soldier
        Everything happens according to the wave theory!
        Now many have a memory ... cool down! Some generally got bogged down or the "bamboo" was smoked, below the limit.
        Bounce that over and over again, brain repair procedures will have to be done!

          A modern interpretation wave theory it's probably 'telephone law'. And with their memory it’s easier to turn it ON / OFF, recently it’s turned OFF, it is locked and still sealed by amers

              And you can’t kick, that's what a shame! It’s like you are walking around the village and there are such mongrels and are trying to bite secretly .. You wait a moment and whistle a whimper from a U-turn .. But then the next day they wave your tail and look ingenuously into your eyes ..

                One tried to get out from under the fence, for some reason then he chewed a tie .... and he could refuel with toilet paper, the owner drove a whole steamer of it.

                    Those mongrels from under the fence only yapping ... besides, the simple truth doesn’t fit in them, petty, that the fence only from the facade looks so beautiful, but in nature there is only rubbish!

                      And torturing them to prove something is useless in words ..
                      Just kick from the U-turn so that together with this striped fence they collapse and screech .. hi
                      Something was remembered ...

      Well, the Americans have allocated about 2,7 trillion and the EU - 2,2 trillion euros, but the sums are increasing.

    The economic crisis is at hand. It can be safely assumed that the laws in the world will cease to apply, those who break down first will be trampled upon by strong and no allied commitments will play a role

    I went to the site. I thought I’ll read the norms of analytics, I’d like to know the sane people opinion ..... But I ended up on the forum of ear-matzo and shit-newspaper. Is it right now everywhere?

    And how can military equipment, not inferior to the best world models today, cost less than it was yesterday?
    So how does a new smartphone appear for rabid grandmothers so it's normal, many run to take turns, and how to build what's new for their army at an expensive price, so they immediately raise the stench ......
    I think this is because their children, if something happened, God forbid, will not protect their country at all .....
