The Russian Defense Ministry plans to increase the number of “science companies” in the Russian army up to eleven.
"The experience of science units has proven their necessity, therefore actions on their formation will continue," Deputy Defense Minister Yuri Borisov said. Borisov noted that the state armament program to 2020 is aimed at radical transformation of the Armed Forces.
"Recently, I have personally visited one of the "science companies", composed of 19 men: all are MEPI graduates with highest average diploma scores," he added. According to him, they really effectively solve actual problems and do their job. Earlier it was reported that the Russian Defense Ministry was impressed with the work of “science companies”.
