Named the launch date of the plant for the production of AK in Venezuela

26
The Russian official announced the estimated launch date for the Venezuelan Kalashnikov assault rifle factory. Information about this was distributed by "Interfax».




The project to build a plant for the production of AK started during the life of Hugo Chavez. Its launch faced multiple difficulties due to sanctions imposed on both Russia and Venezuela.

According to Dmitry Shugaev, director of the Federal Service for Military-Technical Cooperation, expressed by him on the sidelines of the Russian International Aerospace Salon MAKS-2019, the plant should be operational in 2020-2021.

Given the situation in the country.

- made a reservation Shugaev.

Earlier, Sergei Chemezov, head of Rostec State Corporation, said that the United States of America was actively hindering the construction of a plant in Venezuela.

They will turn off the electricity, then do not give the opportunity to bring components, machines.

At the same time, Chemezov noted that, despite the difficulties associated with opposing the construction of the enterprise, the Russian company did not stop efforts to fulfill the contract.

It is known that in addition to the Kalashnikov assault rifles themselves of the hundredth series, this plant will also produce ammunition.

Not only Venezuela


Venezuela will not be the only country that in the near future may receive new machines. So, Shugaev announced the potential localization of AK production in Saudi Arabia: now a contract for the supply of automatic machines has been signed with Riyadh.

For the first time, information about the launch of this joint project appeared in February 2019. According to the data announced at that time, Russia was going to agree on the licensed production of the AK-103 Kalashnikov assault rifle in this Middle Eastern country by the middle of this year. Information about the potential deal then, as part of the 14-th international exhibition of arms and military equipment IDEX 2019, voiced the director general of Rosoboronexport Alexander Mikheev.

It is expected that if the company is built in Saudi Arabia, Riyadh will supply AK to third countries. It was assumed that it would be possible to organize the production of machine guns quickly enough due to the developed culture of small arms production weapons in this country. In addition, a number of countries in Africa and Asia have expressed interest in acquiring AKs.

Rosoboronexport is entering a new level of cooperation - industrial partnership.

- said Mikheev then.

      As the joke says - "Givi, I don't understand, are you for me or for the bear?" More importantly what it takes us... At one time they "burst" with a patent for AK and now it is riveted by all and sundry, which largely discredits the brand. And so, at least in this way you can somehow compensate.

          And if everyone flies? Now, what, no one needs to conclude trade agreements or wait, will fly off, will not fly off? Strike while the iron is hot.

        They didn’t crash with a patent on AK, all conceivable and not so long terms of patent law came out on AK and AKM, and the Union gave so many licenses that they collected so many machines even in the huts of Mozambique ... I’m preparing my first article for VO on this subject)

    "It is expected that in the case of the construction of an enterprise in Saudi Arabia, Riyadh will supply AK to third countries" - are the deductions provided for in our country under international patent or copyright law? There are specialists who can comment on this fact.

    The story of Bulgaria, which illegally rivets AK did not teach anything?

      So there was no specifically designated, legally formalized agreement. They handed over patents from the Soviet bounties to the Slav brothers in the hope that the Union would be eternal.

    It is expected that in the case of the construction of an enterprise in Saudi Arabia, Riyadh will supply AK to third countries.

    And how to understand this? Why the homeland of AK - Russia cannot supply native Kalash to third countries?

      Do you even understand what is written? Not Russia, but the Saudis will supply. Russia is the first, CA, to which Russia has granted the right to production, is the second, and all the rest are third. Whoever concludes a supply contract with whom will sell. Elementary Watson.

        I understood perfectly. To establish production for personal needs is one thing. But when you yourself are growing a competitor. The news that India will upgrade the Su-30 to third countries, now that the CA will supply our Kalash assemblies to third countries. Can’t we do this ourselves? Pay salaries to your workers for their products? No first, second, third. Only Russia.

    How many times have the site newsmakers already spoken - check the news before writing.
    We hammer into the search engine "Popelnyukhov" and find interesting information in the Russian media.
    For example, "Komsomolskaya Pravda" for February 27, 2017 (https://www.crimea.kp.ru/daily/26647/3667452/).
    And what we see. I quote.
    Ex-senator sentenced to 7 years for theft of a billion rubles
    He was to build Kalashnikov assault rifle factories in Venezuela

    It turned out that the construction was undertaken by a former member of the Federation Council from the Belgorod Region Sergey Popelnyukhov. The ex-senator put together a firm and received an order from Rosoboronexport to erect a factory in the Latin American country to assemble our best automatic machines in the world. But for some reason, the builders did not pay money. But together with accomplices he transferred huge amounts to the accounts of organizations controlled by him.
    These are the "American sanctions". The sanctions may be American, but the thieves are their own. If there were no sanctions, they would have had to be invented.

    Well, then we’ll start production ... Kalashi real necessarily come in handy!
    Well, even without this, there are many interesting joint projects outlined and this is the main thing.
    Venezuela is a promising country! By the way, in the 50s, the standard of living in this country was many times higher than in the USA! This is a fact .. The oil was corrupted by the same USA ... And when they nationalized, it started, sanctions and pressure.
    We’ll break through, Russia already had something like that .. Help! hi

      At least in general terms, do you represent Venezuela as a whole and in the 50s in particular?

    A plant making AK in Venezuela is needed to ensure that it (AK) spreads throughout Latin America good . What we (Russia) will receive in return - additional distribution of AK good , in money the fat will not be big sad . Lat. America is a new market for us, we (our weapons) are almost there. Now you need to move another weapon, not large and relatively cheap yes . S-400 or Su-57 now Venezuela will not pull them No. .
