On Wednesday, January 23, a sharp response was caused by a sharp statement by Russian Deputy Prime Minister Dmitry Rogozin to the Minister of Finance Alexei Kudrin.
Rogozin, as a person responsible for the defense bloc in the government in his microblog, asked the head of the financial department not to "click into” about the militarization of Russia and talk less with Western countries in a similar tone about military spending.
- Well. why, Alexey Leonidovich, to play up to the West and to replicate the fundamentally wrong statement about the militarization of Russia? - Rogozin tweeted and made a weighty argument, - We have not updated the Armed Forces for a quarter of a century!
