The Russian Ministry of Defense concluded agreements with enterprises to the tune of over 135 bln rubles ($1.98 bln), and they will be extended over the coming eight years (2018-2026). During this period, the military plans to receive two Sukhoi Su-57 jet fighters, six Mikoyan-Gurevich MiG-2 fighters, 132 BMD-4M combat vehicles, 58 BTR-MDM armored vehicles, 69 Typhoon (4x4) vehicles, and repair more than 1,000 Kamaz and Ural vehicles, Kommersant wrote. In turn, the fleet will receive a series of six small missile ships of the Project 22800, which will become carriers of Kalibr cruise missiles that were successfully tested in Syria.

The signing of 32 contracts was held at Patriot Park with Deputy Defense Minister Alexey Krivoruchko attending the event. According to him, with the timely implementation of these deals, the armed forces will receive more than 600 new units, as well as over 1,500 items of repaired weapons, military and special equipment. The execution cycle of most contracts is limited to the period of 2018-2020. A source in the Ministry told Kommersant, this was chiefly due to the practice of approving a three-year budget.
