“Stop fooling around, guys!” Shoigu scolded the workers of the armaments plant for going too far


“Listen, stop fooling around here guys. We started it (increasing production) already in 2022. In 2023, we were supposed to have these machines (for the production of self-propelled artillery systems) already in full operation,” Reuters quoted the Russian Defense Minister as saying. “And you have it so easy here,” he added.

Shoigu further stated that he wants to have a concrete proposal on the table within a week on how the plant will achieve the production required by Russian President Vladimir Putin. However, Reuters and the Russian Ministry of Defense did not say what number of systems Putin requires.

“It has to be done because all these orders are connected to the performance (of the army) on the battlefield,” Shoigu said, according to a press release from the Ministry of Defense. However, according to Reuters, the director countered him by saying that his factory has already increased production six times in the last two years, i.e. since the beginning of the Russian invasion of Ukraine.

They have conquered something, but in the spring they will run out of breath. And then we will step in, said the head of Ukrainian intelligence

Nevertheless, the Russian Minister of Defense stated that the production of the 2S19 Msta-S systems is already being handled according to plan at the visited plant. According to him, however, the production of other systems 2S3 Akatija, 2S4 Tulpan, 2S5 Hyacinth and 2S35 is faltering.

The proposal of the Russian budget for the years 2024 to 2026 shows that the Kremlin is preparing for a long war. In 2024, Russia directed 29.5 percent of all its expenditures to strengthening defense. Another trillion rubles is to be swallowed by national security: the Ministry of the Interior, Rosgvardija or secret services. Total expenditure on the power sectors is to reach almost 40 percent of the budget.

It is necessary to punish the traitor. The State Duma approved the confiscation of property for discrediting the Russian army
