    What is wrong with these "western"/anti-Russian articles on Russian military modernization? I just read a VERY similar articles in Finnish. I mean even the recent ones. It's like they were written in 2008 or 2010, before the current program even started. Sure, PAK FA, Armata, etc. are not fully ready yet, but the modernization is going according to plan, more or less. Don't they know anything about the deliveries in 2013 and 2014? "No innovation, no teh technology, workers are old, Russia is unable to produce military equipment, so much vodka, hur dur dur..." What year is this, seriously? 1999?

    That is exactly what those MSM want you to sell, that russia is still in the 90's with Yeltzin , well actually with Hitler in power that makes russia to a shithole. You only need to listen to TR1 and you will get a summarize of what western propaganda wants you to believe.

    Yes because according to the article now it will include Dagdiesel and a bunch of other enterprises. Tactical Missiles Corporation is looking to become another UAC, United Shipbuilding Corporation, etc... type conglomerate.

    The best enterprise in all of Russia.

    Alfa Bank has a murky history from the 1990s. This smells like a 5th column maneuver given the timing. The debt is about
    $100 million. If Alfa Bank does not ease off, it will be skewered. These bastions of Yeltsin era rot need to be purged.

    Nothing murky. Alfa Bank was a front for the Russian mob, they are only trying to milk UVZ from state subsidies. Either you shell out or we bankrupt the supertoy and buy it out for ourselves.

    This is the problem with the whole subsidiary companies in Russia, it can bite you on your a**. BTW it isn't UVZ that is bankrupt, but the subsidiary, which in return prompts Alfa to ask for solvency towards UVZ. It's just a move to milk the big guys. Normal thievery among gentlemen.

    Kalashnikov was able to completely replace the volume of supply in the U.S. in other markets
    Concern "Kalashnikov" into new markets and was able not only completely replace the volume of supply to the U.S. market, which broke down because of sanctions, but also to sell weapons at a lower price.

    Guess those guys over at mp.net that thought that Kalashnikov would be in trouble over sanctions, are wrong again.

    Russian defence and space industry: closed off to nonrussians?

    Post  KomissarBojanchev on Wed Jul 01, 2015 7:29 pm

    As someone who's interested in getting higher education in engineering(preferably aeronautic or material science) in Russia and eventually working in defence there, this is very important to me. Is it true that you can't get a job in the russian defence R&D is you're not born in Russia, and even if you do, you can't leave the country out of fear of revealing classfied info?

    Please tell me since I haven't found any specific info on this matter

    Probably there're positions related to the military that require naturalisation and jobs that have a cooldown period before contract termination to avoid leakages since those are the main restrictions in most countries.

    No idea about the news.. if true or not...

    But if i were you ,i will not be worried.
    Laws can have its exceptions.. If you are an excellent Student and you show
    a lot of promise , they will find you a Job where you could work in the place you want.

    So get the education first in Engineering if what you want.. marry a Russian girl and get citizenship and in 5 years it will take you to graduate many things can change. The worse thing
    can happen is that after you graduate in Russia, and they say No.. you get a job in the European Space agency.. or any other ,like Japan whith a much higher salary ,but i don't think Russia government will allow any talented engineer to leave.. regardless of what any laws say. Nothing to worry.. really Good Scientist and Engineers are never rejected by any nation.

    yeah vann exacly this is the problem. people want to make what they want with no push from someone else leave when they want and change their mind when they decide is the case to do it. you cannot go somewhere where is possible to no escape. and this is the reason why the countryes around russia want "freedom". they believe that under USA umbrella will have lot of freedom. .....well to them i tell one thing ......if they are right and want no master upon them then they should consider that changing to USA is just take another master upon them with different rules. they are just simply too small for totally own decision outside USA. USA call "stable countryes" those who serve them and let USA do what wants. everyone else is a threat to them.
    all this hysteria got the common man of countryes near russia.

    So they will lay off 17,000 troops and 30,000 civil personnell when the new ammunition depots open. So I suppose this will be one of the major cutbacks to army. So I suppose the new depots will be cheaper and easier to maintain the ammunitions?

    Sucks that these people will lose their jobs.

    Currently they have very low unemployment overall, so if there ever was a time to make cuts this would be it.

    Also, previous method of storing ordinance had some ''explosive'' results...

    They have a shortage of personnel in other areas... hopefully these people can be transferred to safer jobs that also need to be done, and that the automation in the new depots makes things much safer for everyone.

    Russia to Substitute Over 50% of Ukrainian Defense Products by End of 2015

    Russia plans to replace over 50 percent of foreign-made products with domestically-built ones under its import substitution program, a representative of the Russian Defense Ministry said. He added that Russia's defense industry is developing more rapidly amid Western sanctions.

    MOSCOW (Sputnik) – The Russian Defense Ministry plans to replace over 50 percent of foreign products with domestically-built ones as part of its import substitution program which aims to provide alternatives to foreign defense industry components that are no longer available because of Western anti-Russia sanctions.

    "If we talk about Ukraine, we will substitute some of their components by 53% by the end of the year," a ministry representative told journalists on Friday, adding that the substitution of all the products will amount to 67 percent.

    He stressed that Russia’s defense industry is developing more rapidly amid sanctions imposed against Russia over its alleged involvement in the Ukrainian crisis.

    "We will construct many outdated units over again by ourselves, we do not need the old Ukrainian ones," the representative said.

    The main point is that with foreign technology now being so expensive it makes sense to buy domestic.

    The penalty is that the domestic model might not have the same performance as the imported model, but at least now the money being spent is being spent within the Russian economy instead of going into some foreigners pocket.

    Russian workers are earning money instead of foreign workers.

    Very true. But regarding performance one, the best part is for plants whom already make engines of a specific type, can start producing of multitude of types. As they already have experience in designing and making engines, they can use what they already designed and made, as the basis for the more powerful and capable engines. Example is the engines being used for the Steregushy corvettes and soon to be used for various types of Russia's surface fleet:
