Putin explained that this is due not just to the wishes of the young people themselves, and with the need for maintenance of modern equipment.
“Troops are receiving more modern equipment that requires good training of those who will do it in the army, — said Putin. — Why (if) people come to serve for a year, it will not prepare a pilot will not prepare submariner”.
