A glance at military spending around the world

April 1, 2014

Russian military forces are far better equipped than their counterparts in Ukraine, whose government can barely afford to pay their soldiers' salaries.

Here is a look at the amount the two former Soviet nations spend each year on each member of their armed forces, compared with even bigger-spending militaries in the East and West, according to security affairs consultancy IHS Aerospace & Defense.

The totals are in U.S. dollars per year, per member of the armed forces.

—United States $381,306

—United Kingdom $330,810

—France $231,934

—Russia $83,478

—China $77,712

—India $35,732

—Ukraine $11,937
