Russian weapons - the most popular product in the world

Liberally oriented media expressed skepticism about the possibility of a powerful breakthrough in the modernization of defense industries, which was planned by Russian President Vladimir Putin.

Comments by Igor KOROTCHENKO, chairman of the Public Council under the Ministry of Defense of the Russian Federation, editor-in-chief of the magazine National Defense.

- The task of strengthening national sovereignty and increasing the role of Russia's authority in the world is strongly related to the capabilities of the army and fleet. And it’s crucial for them to get new weapon from the military-industrial complex of the country.

Vladimir Putin absolutely exactly put all the accents. And his reference to 30's is completely valid. Then the Soviet Union was actually ten years before the start of aggression against him. But even today the spectrum of threats in the world, including the military, is constantly expanding.

There is again an arms race, today the United States, China and other developed countries are actively building up military muscles. First and foremost, their military achievements are converted into political and economic successes, into expansion, which is shown by all the major world players.

Therefore, it is natural that the president has also set tasks for our defense complex that must be solved practically within the limits of the current state armaments program. That is, up to 2020.

So, today, our state has essentially the same ten years to re-equip and meet the upcoming challenges prepared.

The goals and objectives, the program theses voiced by Putin are completely objective, in line with the expectations of the overwhelming majority of our citizens. And of course, those army and navy, which have good weapons produced by the military sector of the national economy, are strong.

This is actually an “insurance policy” for the coming decades for our country.

As for the allegations that the defense industry cannot be a locomotive in the economy, I am sure that this is to a certain extent a “liberal” lie.

We get about 13 billions of dollars a year from arms exports. This is a lot of money.

Our engineering and other sectors of the economy can not boast such success. In practice, our national welfare today is largely due to the export of natural raw materials. But such a position cannot remain infinite.

Therefore, weapons as a high-tech product that is competitive on the world market, allows Russia to solve both geopolitical tasks and the tasks of obtaining additional foreign exchange earnings in our economy.

Today we are creating joint defense enterprises with a number of countries - for example, with India, Vietnam, Jordan and other states - in order to produce modern weapons on the customer’s territory within these enterprises.

Russian weapons are a product in demand in the world.

With regard to the possible use of military technology in other areas of the economy - I will say that, for example, the fifth-generation fighter behind him pulled virtually the entire chain of industries related to metallurgy and materials with nanocoatings. The implementation of the program for the development of the fifth generation engine will allow us to tighten up a number of other industries.

Within the framework of the military-industrial commission, an advanced development agency is being created. It will finance research that can produce breakthrough results that can be used both in military affairs and in the civilian sector of the economy.

I know that the leaders of the defense complex welcome President Putin’s speech, considering it to be right and timely.

    The main thing is not to stand still. Without the army and navy of Russia will not be.

    No matter how much money we get from arms exports, the rearmament of our army is the primary prerogative of the state!

    And most of all I hate the position of skeptics who, over and over here, make noise about excesses when praising the leaders of Russia ...
    What’s the problem - scold, criticize, but there’s no reason to vilify the citizens of the Russian Federation for nothing, who see numerous positive changes in the state of Russia and admire it by themselves ...
    But envious pessimists call them - Urya-patriots ...
    This is not so at all, just for an optimist the glass is always half full ...

    "The world belongs to the optimists, and the pessimists in it are only spectators" Francois Guizot

    "Pessimism is a mood, optimism is a will." Alain (who is he?)

    Therefore, friends, let's look at the future of Russia with optimism!

      Eugene, in connection with this, I recall another comparison told by a colleague. Kingdom to him is heaven and earth rest in peace ...

      What is the difference between an optimist and a pessimist?
      A pessimist, having smelled cognac - "Ugh! Smells like a bug!"
      Otimist, having crushed a bug - "Mmmm! A-ah! It smells of cognac ...!

        it’s better to be a pessimist and drink brandy than an optimist and crush bugs. laughing

        If you follow this saying, both are mistaken.

    This is all, of course, good, but without full control of the military-industrial complex by the state it is impossible. Controlling stakes and officials personally responsible for the modernization.
    Otherwise, the military-industrial complex will turn into an analogue of agriculture of the times of the USSR, into a black financial hole.

    Putin will lead not only to control of the military-industrial complex, but total control of the industry of natural monopolies, large-scale agriculture, and other sectors of Russia that are important for the economy — all this goes ...
    Soon the oligarchs will become only nominal owners of the "business", and the babos, taken offshore, will become a kind of third Russian fund ...
    But we will know little about it ...
