Russia has created an office to ensure continued military development in the face of new U.S. sanctions that are expected in less than a month, a senior defense industry official has revealed.

A new office within the Kremlin-run Military-Industrial Commission will make sure that the anticipated restrictions will not hamper its multibillion-dollar rearmament efforts through 2020, Deputy Prime Minister Dmitry Rogozin said Monday.

“The Military-Industrial Commission board has formed a headquarters to ensure the sustainable development of the defense industry and lasting state defense orders in light of the expected strengthening of illegal U.S. sanctions,” Rogozin wrote on Twitter.
