Ivanov Sees Military Leading on High-Tech

Abstract:
On Friday, he did not miss the chance to boast how much money had been set aside to support these programs over the next three years. "It is a total of 1,314,033,000,000 rubles," he said before twice repeating this figure, which comes to around $50 billion, and adding, "It's an impressive sum, isn't it?"

Above all, the projects will go toward supporting innovation, especially in fields such as transport and nanotechnology, he said. "These federal projects must all be open and subject to the strictest possible control because there is such an enormous sum [devoted to them]."

Even the medical equipment industry, which Ivanov called "one of the most criminalized," should be brought under the umbrella of the military-industrial complex if it is to avoid stagnation, he said.
