At the same time, he noted that the effectiveness of work to strengthen the country's defense capabilities, the quality development of the armed forces, law enforcement agencies, special services largely depend on the officer corps of the Russian army. “First of all, this concerns the implementation of a large-scale program of re-equipping the army and navy with advanced weapons,” the head of state said at a reception in honour of graduates of higher military educational institutions, RIA Novosti reports.
