==Unofficial estimates==
{{update|section|reason=This article needs more recent estimates than the many 2013 estimates}}
Unofficial estimates place the total amount of [[military spending]] for the Russian Federation higher than the Russian government figures, but these calculations tend to differ between organizations. According to the IISS "By simple observation..[the military budget] would appear to be lower than is suggested by the size of the armed forces or the structure of the military-industrial complex, and thus neither of the figures is particularly useful for comparative analysis".<ref>International Institute for Strategic Studies, The Military Balance 2006, Routledge, p.153</ref>
