Russia goes on arms spending spree

   Russia has unveiled the biggest rearmament program since the fall of the Soviet Union, saying that it intends to buy 600 planes, 100 ships and 1,000 helicopters within the next decade.
   The ambitious overhaul will cost the equivalent of $644 billion and comes at a time when other countries such as Britain are cutting their defence spending to try to balance their national budgets.
