strength of Russia's armed forces is 1,207,000 servicemen and 876,000 civilian personnel
The funds allocated by the Russian budget for national defense could only provide for an army of no more than 500,000 fully equipped soldiers, in line with modern requirements, RIA Novosti was told by a high-ranking source in the Defense Ministry. According to the Defense Ministry data, the strength of Russia's armed forces is 1,207,000 servicemen and 876,000 civilian personnel. The source said Russia spends 3.1% of the GDP on defense today. "Approximately the same part of the total volume of the GDP is spent on defense in other countries; what really matters here is the real size of the GDP," he said. "The present variant of financing is a compromise between the possible and the desired levels of our army financing," added the source.
