Statements about the high cost of the T-14 “Armata” will not affect production plans for the plant, developed and producing a fighting machine, told TASS Director of corporate communications of the enterprise Dmitry Ex.
“Such statements did not affect the work of the shops “Uralvagonzavod”, the work is carried out in the same mode in accordance with the contracts,” said Ex.
