Russia Defense Forces 1996

    • Branches:
      Ground Forces, Navy, Air Forces, Air Defense Forces, Strategic Rocket Forces

    • Manpower availability:
      males age 15-49 38,264,699; males fit for military service 29,951,977; males reach military age (18) annually 1,106,176 (1995 est.)

    • Defense expenditures:
      $NA, NA% of GDP

        the Intelligence Community estimates that defense spending in Russia fell about 15% in real terms in 1994, reducing Russian defense outlays to about one-fourth of peak Soviet levels in the late 1980s; although Russia may still spend as much as 10% of its GDP on defense, this is significantly below the 15% to 17% burden the former USSR carried during much of the 1980s; conversion of military expenditures into US dollars using the current exchange rate could produce misleading results
