Ambassador Alexander Yakovenko’s remarks at the Defender of the Fatherland Day reception, 27 February 2018

Your Excellencies, Military Attachés, Ladies and Gentlemen, Today it gives me a great pleasure to welcome you all at this reception. We celebrate the Day of the Russian Armed Forces – probably the most cost-effective military organization on this planet. At least that's what I see from the figures published by the very respectful IISS institution – Russia spends 46 bln. US dollars on defence, whereas UK – 52 bln. dollars, USA – an amazing 600+ bln. and all NATO countries combined – more than 1 trillion dollars. And still even with this absolutely disproportional defence spending Russia manages to maintain an Army which effectively fights terrorism in Syria, protects our borders and sovereignty at home.
