It is necessary to overcome the dependence on import of technology," Putin said at a meeting at the Russian defence ministry Friday."It is important not only to place orders at our enterprises and design bureaus but also to organise production, which will exceed foreign analogues," he said.The total amount of the state defence order increased 1.5 times in 2014 as compared to last year, Putin added.Over 4,500 types of weaponry and hardware have been provided to troops.
