In Russia, according to the draft federal budget, the item of expenditure "National Defense" for the first time since 2020 will exceed the item "National Economy". Defense spending will account for about 15% of total budget expenditures.

According to RBC, the total sum of the budgeted expenditures under this item will amount to 3,5 trillion rubles. This is about 2,6% of the projected GDP in 2022-2024. The draft budget has been submitted to the State Duma for consideration.

Most of the cost of a harrow is secret. However, they may be even larger. Thus, the Ministry of Defense's economic section includes expenses for the development of communications and informatics. Pensions to former military men were also included in another section - "Social Policy".

More will be spent only on social policy - 5,8 trillion rubles. The expenditure item "National Economy", which gave way to the defense, will cost the state treasury 3,46 trillion rubles.

The maintenance of the president and his staff will cost 23,3 billion rubles in 2022 alone.
