The Ministry of Industry and Trade of Russia has officially published a list of enterprises operating in the Russian Defense Industry Complex (DIC), thereby making it possible to assess the key indicators of the DIC’s size which have changed insignificantly over the past six months. However, the publication itself of such data is indicative of Russia’s intention to create a transparent defense economy. Further steps are required to create and publish official statistics of contracts for and prices of defense products, disclose federal budget allocations on actual expenditures concerning the state defense order.
