American manufacturer AK suspected of "ties with Putin's allies"

29
The news agency Bloomberg announces the start of an investigation into the manufacturer of Kalashnikov assault rifles in the state of Florida. We are talking about the company RWC Group (Russian weapons company), which is engaged in the production of AK. The Miami Attorney took over the case, leading the case to establish the details of the receipt of tax benefits by the company for the Kalashnikov USA plant operating in Pompano Beach.


American manufacturer AK suspected of "ties with Putin's allies"


The following was chosen as the reason for the start of the US attorney’s audit: The RWC Group allegedly has connections with some allies of Russian President Vladimir Putin.

In the company itself, these “accusations” do not comment in any way, stating only that they are engaged in legal business, bringing substantial tax revenues to the American treasury due to the fact that Kalashnikovs are known in the US.

Recall that for more than three years, there have been US sanctions against the Russian concern Kalashnikov. For this reason, RWC Group was forced to cease communication with the Russian company, retaining the right to manufacture automatic machines for the American (and not only) market.

    Well, the factory was all gone ... the prosecutor will draw Trump to his ears ... Skripal with Novice ... the ubiquitous Putin ... but what to lie like that.
    The arms lobby in the USA, however, may be outraged ... (robbers) the prosecutors of the Kalashnikov assault rifle are deprived.

      In fairness, no AK-47 was ever in the arsenal of the Union, it was just AK

        Right. AK, AKM, etc. But here we have in mind the design of 47 years. As you say AK.

          Here is a quote from the site of the Kalashnikov concern:
          In 1945, Kalashnikov took part in the competition for the development of an assault rifle under the cartridge of the 1943 model. According to the results of competitive tests in 1947, the AK-47 was recommended for adoption by the Soviet Army. In 1948, the young designer was sent to Izhevsk to master the model and manufacture a military batch of machine guns. In early 1949, the Izhevsk Machine-Building Plant began mass production of a new machine, which was to become the "weapon of the century." The weapon received its official name - "7,62-mm Kalashnikov assault rifle of the 1947 model (AK)", and the young designer was awarded the Order of the Red Star and the Stalin Prize of the first degree "for developing a model of weapons."

          Product AK-47 was not in service, it was called AK.

            The fact that this weapon did not stand in service under such a name does not mean that it WASN’T. A AK-47 WAS. And under this name, in the amount of more than a thousand pieces, he passed military tests. By the way, before that was the AK-46

                Your "trap", let's call it that, with the accuracy of the wording, I understood right away. Therefore, he made clarifications in his comments about the period in which this weapon was called Ak-47.

                  Yes, there was no trap, I initially wrote about "adopted weapons".

    RWC Group allegedly has ties with certain allies of Russian President Vladimir Putin
    It’s already difficult to comment on American schizophrenia, as the set of words has ended completely. This is already beginning to approach MacArthism, and soon on such "charges" they will begin to deprive of rights and put in jail. Full paragraph.

      Witch Hunt is a weak spot in the United States and a great tool for influencing the American political community. This tool must be taken under the control of our special services.

        It’s just that Americans cannot compete fairly.

    Marasmus has no end to what is called. Everything and everything related to Russia is under suspicion. I can give new places to search for "ties with the Russians." These are those who are related to Stolichnaya vodka. You can grab every bartender and drag him to the commission of inquiry or a committee to counter the threats of America. laughing laughing

      Yeah. The next in line - dolls manufacturers in the USA - Putin personally oversees this business in general. This is the weapon of Russian propaganda - the children are very fond of nested dolls. The turnover of nested dolls can be equated with the turnover of drugs. laughing

    If Colt called everyone equal, then Kalashnikov showed the way to a brighter future (why would he love half the world?)! Mr. Prosecutor does not see the light at the end of the tunnel! Lord! Help the elderly person! It is not good that he would suffer!
