Vladimir Putin stressed that the military budget of the Russian Federation is only seventh in the world, while the United States, China, Saudi Arabia, Britain, France and Japan are ahead of Russia.

$ 48 billion, according to Putin, is money spent by Russia to defend and develop new weapons systems.
