Military parade in Washington, to be held November 10 at the direction of the President of the United States Donald trump, will cost about $ 12 million. It is reported by CNN, citing sources in the defense sector.
According to one of them, this amount is estimated and likely to change during the training. The channel indicates that it is virtually the same as it was saved on lifting exercises with South Korea: for their conduct planned to spend about 14 million. Maneuvers trump called extremely expensive. “We’ll save a fortune on these military exercises,” — said the American leader.
The expected cost of $ 12 million (760 million rubles) — is smaller than Russia spent on the celebration of may 9 as a whole. According to estimates RBC, in 2018 it took 615 million rubles, while about half of the amount — concerts and dispersal of clouds. Directly to transport troops spent almost 150 million. At the same time, spending on fuel for the equipment is unknown.
Earlier it was reported that the Pentagon has not given permission for the use of tanks in a military parade in Washington, because they cause too much damage to the infrastructure. It was given consent to use of US air force aircraft in the final part.
The President of the United States Donald trump in late January, instructed the Pentagon to prepare military parade in Washington, similar to that annually arrange on the Champs Elysees on July 14 in honor of the National day of the French Republic. It is planned that military equipment will be from the White house to the Capitol. The parade is timed to the 100th anniversary of the First world war (11 November 1918).
