As well as the development status of various fields such as foreign relations and development goals for the next six years.

  Russia-Ukraine conflict and military strength

  Putin said that the Russian army has taken the initiative in the special military operation against Ukraine and has been steadily attacking in a series of combat directions.

Russia will make every effort to end military operations, eradicate Nazism, complete all tasks of special military operations, and protect national sovereignty and citizen security.

  Putin said that the Russian economy as a whole has shown resilience and stability, and the Russian military has gained a lot of experience in operations, including in the coordination of various services and arms.

  He said that the installed Russian-made "Dagger" hypersonic missile has shown its effectiveness in special military operations, and the "Zircon" sea-based hypersonic cruise missile has been put into use.

The "Pioneer" intercontinental hypersonic missile and the "Peresvet" laser weapon system have also entered combat duty, and the tests of the "Haiyan" nuclear-powered cruise missile and the "Poseidon" intercontinental unmanned submarine are nearing completion.

The first batch of Sarmat intercontinental ballistic missiles has been delivered to the troops.

At the same time, Russia is continuing to develop a series of other new weapons systems.

  Putin said that the West is repeating the tactics it used against the Soviet Union in the 1980s, trying to drag Russia into an arms race in order to consume Russia.

Russia will rationally allocate resources and develop the defense industrial complex.

He also refuted the outside world's claims that Russia planned to deploy nuclear weapons in space as baseless and false news, and the purpose was to try to drag Russia into negotiations that would only benefit the United States.

  Refute the hypocritical words and deeds of the United States and the West

  Putin said that the West is provoking conflicts in Ukraine, the Middle East and other parts of the world and continues to falsely claim that Russia seems to be planning to attack Europe, which is pure nonsense.

Western countries not only hinder Russia's development, but also try to turn Russia into a dependent and declining space so that they can do whatever they want.

"The West's dangerous words and deeds in foreign policy are triggering conflicts involving the use of nuclear weapons and the danger of the destruction of civilization."

  Putin said that in view of the security threats posed by Sweden and Finland joining NATO, Russia's military deployment in the western direction must be strengthened.

  Putin also said that Russia is willing to engage in dialogue with the United States on strategic stability.

But he questioned the hypocrisy of the U.S. on the one hand hoping to discuss strategic stability issues and on the other hand trying to defeat Russia.

Russia’s position is that strategic stability issues can only be resolved comprehensively and comprehensively, including taking into account all aspects of Russia’s national interests and security.

  He pointed out that the actions of the United States and its allies actually led to the disintegration of the European security system.

We should be committed to building a new security architecture of equality and indivisibility in Eurasia in the foreseeable future.

Russia is willing to engage in specific dialogue with all relevant countries and organizations on this issue.

  Unite the international community to address global challenges

  Putin said that Russia strives to unite most countries in the world to jointly respond to global challenges, including the rapid transformation of the world economy, trade, finance and technology markets.

He pointed out that by 2028, the BRICS countries will account for 37% of the world's gross domestic product (GDP), while this figure for the G7 will fall below 28%.

“Global trends are inevitable and they are objective in nature”.

  He said that Russia cooperates with partner countries on the basis of equality and respect for each other's interests.

Russia believes that there are broad prospects for linking the integration process within the framework of the Eurasian Economic Union with the "Belt and Road" initiative proposed by China and establishing a "Greater Eurasian Partnership."

The dialogue between Russia and ASEAN has developed actively, the Russia-Africa Summit has achieved breakthroughs, and Russia has long-term friendly relations with Arab countries and Latin America.

  Become one of the four largest economies in the world in the future

  Putin said that Russia is currently the economy with the largest GDP in Europe and the fifth largest economy in the world based on purchasing power parity.

"The speed and quality of its growth allow us to hope and even affirm that in the near future we will take another step forward and join the ranks of the world's four largest economies."

  Putin pointed out that the Russian economy is transforming into a composite, technology-based and non-resource-based economy.

He proposed that by 2030, the proportion of imports should not exceed 17% of GDP.

In the next six years, the state and enterprises’ investment in scientific research should increase to 2% of GDP, the share of domestic high-tech products and services in the domestic market should increase by 0.5 times, and the export volume of non-raw materials and non-energy should increase by at least two-thirds. It should rank among the top 25 in the world in terms of industrial robot ownership, agricultural output should increase by at least 25% and exports by 50% compared with 2021, and the fertility rate should achieve steady growth.

At the same time, we will continue to address poverty and reduce the proportion of people affected by poverty to less than 7% by 2030.

  Putin also put forward requirements for the science and technology development strategy. All key technologies should be independently owned in sensitive areas such as public health protection and food safety, and technological independence should be achieved in cross-cutting fields to ensure the sustainability of the national economy. In aerospace, nuclear energy and new energy technologies, Putin Create globally competitive products in the field.

  Putin announced that five national projects will be launched - the "Family", "Longevity and Active Life", "Russian Youth", "Talent" and "Data Economy" plans.
