MOSCOW. March 2 (Interfax) - The Russian defense industry is working to fulfill government defense orders and does not panic, Deputy Prime Minister Yury Borisov said.

I am positive that we are capable of retaining the same level in the future," the Borisov office quoted him as saying at a meeting of the Military Industrial Commission board.

The board is constantly monitoring the status of the Russian defense industry and progress in the implementation of state defense orders, he said.
