Russia to spend $600 billion on army revamp including buying Arms from the US… WTF??

January 8, 2012

The collapse of the military-oriented Soviet Union has seen a gradual decay of Russia‘s armed forces, and major reforms have been put in place to put them back on track. Moscow will pour over 600-billion dollars into refitting the army over the next ten years. And there’s a new man in charge as well – Russia’s former envoy to NATO will now put his long experience to good use, helping revamp the country’s military. RT’s Tom Barton explains why changes are needed.
