In his view, to the creation of the Commission of Experts, consisting of recognized designers and professionals in the field of armaments, which is to identify priorities for the development and procurement of weapons, and to give advice to the president.

Indeed, in recent years the Russian military industry is poorly managed with arms supplies to the domestic market, a prerequisite to the poor quality of products and immensely highest price. This is a consequence nedavneshnego past, but there are also wine available control of the country. Our more than 10 years engaged in the restoration of the birthplace of the economy, with all this internal defense procurement remained at a low level, the emphasis was placed on the export of arms, which allowed companies to survive.
