In a video posted on social media, the minister said he had discussed issues related to the military budget and defense orders with the finance ministry.

“We continue to deliver weapons and equipment early through loans. Our priority is long-range high-precision weapons, aircraft equipment and maintaining the readiness of the strategic nuclear forces,” he said.

The meeting was attended by a number of senior army officials, including Chief of General Staff General Valery Gerasimov, who also did not appear in public recently. Shoigu was spotted in a video of a meeting between President Vladimir Putin and Russia's Security Council on Thursday, but he did not take the floor.
