On Thursday, Feb.14, the Chief of the General Staff, Colonel-General Valery Gerasimov said that all missile brigades of the Russian Federation would be armed with Iskander missile complexes by 2020.

"By 2020, we will switch all missile brigades to Iskander," said Gerasimov at a news conference in Moscow.

Noteworthy, the head of Russia's defense export corporation Rosoboronexport has recently denied the information about Russia's shipment of Iskander tactical missile complexes to Syria. In July last year, Russia allocated more than 24 billion rubles to modernize the production of Iskander-M missile complexes.
