The Stockholm Peace Research Institute (SIPRI) reports that Russia’s military spending will increase by 9.2% in 2022 to $86.4 billion.
By 2022, Russia will spend at least 4% of GDP on war. About that reported the British Ministry of Defense, citing intelligence data.
The Stockholm Peace Research Institute (SIPRI) said Russia’s military spending will increase by 9.2% in 2022 to $86.4 billion, accounting for 4.1% of the country’s gross domestic product.
Actual Russian military spending is highly uncertain due to the increased use of secret budget lines, especially since February 2022, and the lack of transparency.
It is reported that the Russian Federation has recently resumed the publication of summary data on costs after it suspended them last year – in May 2022.
“It is almost certain that military spending remains high, and this puts pressure on Russia’s public finances,” the ministry said.
It will be recalled that from February 24, 2022 to May 29, 2023, the total combat losses of Russian troops on the territory of Ukraine amounted to approximately 207,440 people killed.
