Shoigu Reports Dramatic Increase in Russian War Production

In an interview with TASS Editor-in-Chief Mikhail Petrov, Russian Defense Minister Sergey Shoigu detailed the dramatic increase in the country’s military production over the last year. “We have increased the number of tanks almost six-fold; we are improving and upgrading them. The number of unmanned aerial vehicles has grown 17-fold and the number of both artillery and jet shells has risen 17.5-fold. It certainly allows us to face the future with confidence even though the job is challenging.” Shoigu added: “We recruited almost 540,000 people for contract service last year alone, which allowed us to create a reserve army of six divisions.”
