Armed services procurement was expected to reach 1.7 trillion rubles ($52 billion) in 2014, up from the 1.35 trillion rubles allocated for state defense contracts this year. That was in line with the trend of increased defense expenditure across the board, but came against the backdrop of severe planned budget cuts to health care and education. Russia was implementing an ambitious 20 trillion ruble ($640 billion) rearmament program planned to run up until 2020. The program would see the share of modern weaponry in RussiaÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s armed forces reach 30 percent by 2015 and 70 percent by 2020. Borisov said a new state arms procurement program for the decade up to 2025, which was being drafted by the government, would prioritize quality over quantity in new weaponry and focus on the standardization and unification of military equipment."
