"The key task today is to do everything to satisfy all the needs of the Armed Forces…First and foremost of the units that are taking part in the Special Military Operation [the term Russia uses for the war against Ukraine - ed.]."
Details: The President of the aggressor state claimed that all the companies that are now working several shifts to meet the needs of the army will serve as a unique impetus to industrial development.
"Plants in Moscow, St Petersburg, the Urals, Siberia, the Far East - dozens of regions in our country are now working overtime, in several shifts", he stated.
"Today it is clear that the majority of the armaments produced is for internal use, for the needs of the Armed Forces^, but even in these circumstances we have sold $8 billion worth of armaments on the world markets", Putin claimed, adding that given the current conditions that is quite a good result.
He states that contracts for even higher sums have been signed.
He also claimed that the experience of counteracting modern Western weapons during the war in Ukraine must be used in order to increase the quality of Russian defence production.
