In Samara, panic among pensioners. A terrible thing - the executive director of OAO Kuznetsov, Yury Yeliseyev, did not manage to take over 3 on April, and then, on April 6, Anatoly Chubais himself “entered” the city and began to agitate to invest in nanotechnology. Incredulous pensioners rushed to banks to withdraw deposits just in case.
The Samara region stands on specific things - the auto industry, the aviation industry, the chemical industry, rocket and aviation engine building. But in one fell swoop, one personnel decision to fill up the basic enterprise for the province - have already passed. For Samara aircraft manufacturers, Eliseev’s departure is a tragedy. And for the entire aircraft industry too.
Since April 4, this post of the executive director of OAO Kuznetsov has been occupied by typical clerk, member of the board of directors of the company Nikolay Yakushin, who previously worked in Roskosmos structures. His speeches are more suitable for United Russia conferences. And the professionals remained at a loss:
- Yakushin spoke for two hours - nobody understood anything. Remember Gorbachev - “To begin, to entice, to accelerate ...”
Hurry, fussing managers nest Medvedev. The beginning of April showed that the “Manturians” decided to finally finish off the aircraft industry. Otherwise, why were they forced to throw a statement “on their own” on the table by a single professional engine builder Yuri Eliseev.
Recall that the entire Long-Range Aviation of the Russian Air Force depends on the engines of OAO Kuznetsov. It is well known that a strategic enterprise under the yoke of endless reforms has been bent over the past decade, and with it the “strategists” readiness has fallen. For many years, plans for a state defense order and for supplying gas pumping stations to Gazprom have not been fulfilled. In 2008, the flight tests of the innovative NK-93 aircraft engine were frustrated. Scored billions of rubles in debt. Aircraft engines and Gazprom aggregates taken from the military for repair and modernization disappeared in an unknown direction.
Finally, in November, 2011 appeared the rarest reason to rejoice over the competent personnel decision of the United Engine Building Corporation (UEC) and the Ministry of Industry and Trade - they removed the “terminator” N. Nikitin from Kuznetsov and appointed Yuriy Eliseev, a respected professional engine builder in the industry. Eliseev at Kuznetsov had to start with crap toilets and correct the predecessor personnel policy. They say, he came to 10-th workshop, there they make the most difficult automation for rocket engines. In front of him a polished boy in boots shuffles around.
- Who are you? - asks Yuri Sergeyevich.
- Where did you work before?
- In the restaurant.
It is clear that after this dialogue a real master appeared in the workshop, and not someone's protege. Yuri Yeliseyev managed to halve the company's losses in just one year - from 730 to 362 million rubles. Revenue increased from 2,6 billion to 4,4 billion rubles. He has always believed that there are no technical barriers to the implementation of plans. There are still designers and engineers who can solve the most ambitious tasks. Only the time factor and the absence of financial leverage can interfere. When he came to an executive director at Kuznetsov, he immediately said that in a few years it would be the best and most modern enterprise in the industry. And began a mad job.
For the first time, the plan for the state defense order was fulfilled, little by little they began to pay off debts, production started to rhythmically, the design potential of the enterprise began to recover. The NK-33 rocket engines for Russian and US space programs are being tested and transmitted to customers. There are real plans for new aircraft engines. It seemed about to be returned under the wing of the flying laboratory — to complete the tests — the NK-93 high-powered aircraft engine promising the unique efficiency — Russia simply does not have another “breakthrough” project in this area.
This suggests only two options for understanding the situation. The first, that the illiterate (in the sense of professional training) pests from the Ministry of Industry and Trade and the UEC (I never believe that such key decisions are passing by the profile minister) decided that “the moor did his job, the moor can leave” - it's time to free up a warm place for another rogue with iphone. Everything is clear here - it smelled of money. These villains do not know that the iPhone critical technologies do not raise, then the identity and knowledge of the subject required. The second option is even more vile - the situation does not suit the enemies of the country, that the once mighty enterprise begins to rise from the ashes, confuses secret plans for the collapse of the industry. Why scare Washington with new engines for missile carriers? So did not agree.
There was already a rally in support of the manager at the plant - 450 people went against the criminal stupidity imposed from above. Samara workers, engineers, designers, technologists write an appeal to the Kremlin - there is a “king-father”, he will judge: “... We ask you to pay attention to the opinion of the 11-thousandth collective of the enterprise: leave Yu.S. Eliseev as the executive director of OJSC KUZNETSOV.
But letters of appeal of similar content to V. Putin’s name for the presidential administration are not newsthere were a lot of them. Therefore, the collective has one way out - to be not a herd controlled by swindlers, but to put in place the liquidators of the technological, economic and defense potential of the country themselves. Judging by the letter, Kuznetsov workers are not all the same. And there should be support - it’s not for nothing that the president headed and blessed the movement with the many saying title “Popular Front”. We are sure that the Governor of the Samara Region Nikolai Merkushkin will support us. He has already confirmed by deeds that his main task is to ensure the growth of the industrial potential of the region. And then he had a knife in his back.
For comparison - GAZ Group shows record growth. This week Dm. Medvedev with blessing blessed a new model in production - the GAZel NEXT. And why? Yes, because the president of the company since 2009 has been working as a world-renowned specialist in the automotive industry, Swede Bo Andersson. Although the "Varyag", but very effective. Only in the aviation industry are efficient and decent leaders not in court.
When V. Masalov (a personnel financier!), General Director of UC United Engine Corporation Corporation, declares that he does not see prospects at Kuznetsov, he deliberately lies or does not understand anything at all in real business.
In addition to the production of modernized engines for strategic aviation, Russian Railways will be handed over the second gas turbine carrier in May, when ordering such unique locomotives of record thrust-bearing capacity on the 2020 before the 40 year. More about 200 pieces want to get India. The new strategic missile carrier PAK DA for long-range aviation, will require new engines. French from Superjet on it you will not put. Gazprom is supplied with 25-megawatt gas pumping stations, new, even more powerful ones are being developed. There are many more engineering tasks that can be solved in Samara. And the illiterate crooks from state corporations and the Ministry of Industry and Trade prefer to bury theirs in order to pay in hard currency to the same Siemens. This is how money is squandered - instead of ordering the Kuznetsov plating line in Tambov for 640 million rubles, “accountants” from the UEC buy in the West for 1 billion 700 million rubles. How can we raise industry if gentlemen prefer to finance production in Germany or the Czech Republic?
Personality and antipodes
What is not acceptable Yuri Eliseev? He is too independent. Minister D. Manturov blamed even the fact that “The Arguments of the Week” did not abandon the topic of the NK-93 aircraft engine. We generally tried not to mention his name in connection with this development, information about the situation at the enterprise was taken from other sources. So we were asked by everyone who was interested in taking Eliseev’s enterprise out of a death pike:
- Minister Manturov is vindictive by nature, do not touch Yuri Sergeyevich now, so as not to harm.
We did not touch. But they still got it - chiefs-merchants from the UEC ordered to sell one of the two industrial sites of OAO Kuznetsov for commercial development. Yeliseyev perfectly understood what it means to bury Samara as the center of aircraft engine building and turn into a regular repair plant. It is at SNTK that the entire scientific and design base, unique finishing and test benches are located. Naturally, Eliseev refused to execute the wrecking order. Yes, even at a meeting with Prime Minister Dm. Medvedev honestly reported on the actual state with the conclusion and financing of the state defense order - the quarter has already passed, and the bins are empty. In addition, the officials have already announced the “strategic task” - from 82 thousand engine manufacturers leave 19,5 thousand. The prime minister, once again showing “state wisdom,” and this was swallowed: “I think that the situation in the engine industry is not bad.” And then Eliseev could not stand it, spoke:
- There is still no contract on state defense order (it was at the end of February). And in November, it will already be necessary to account for its execution.
Making aircraft engines is not a small-sized rivet; the production cycle of one takes months. Stop the conveyor, and then cut the switch and run on the new will not work. Piece specialists, if they run, cannot be replaced by yesterday’s schoolchildren:
- If you deceive people once more, then you can not spin the flywheel of production. And how Moscow scoundrels need such a truthful person? Conclusion - remove it is dangerous. Suddenly, NK-93 will lift onto the wing, what then to do? It turns out that when the chairman of the Federation Council, Valentina Matvienko, called the KLA “thief,” she assigned the same title to the adjacent JDC. Valentina Ivanovna ought to stand up for Eliseev. If, according to the state, Yury Sergeevich should not be dismissed, but put at the head of the entire UEC, with the broadest powers. Oh, he will be able to make this colossus function effectively, he will find and place the real people at key points.
Colonel-General Anatoly Sitnov made the personnel policy in the aircraft industry a long time ago diagnosis:
- Assign a "neznaek" - people who can only carry out orders for the manipulation of financial flows. Destroy those who are able to generate ideas and implement them. It is known that even one true professional often determines the development of an entire industry. In practice, purposeful work is being done on decapitating the aviation industry, which will lead to a natural result - stagnation and incapacity.
Remember the great movie "Chairman"? There, Yegor Trubnikov, obsessed with work (his role was played by Mikhail Ulyanov), the collective farmers defended. And who stood by the mountain to protect Yuri Eliseev? Littered, wrote a letter to the president and calmed down. And behind this peace and indifference is the fate of the country and its ability to speak on equal terms with “partners” all over the world. Everything that the gang of managers does is in no way connected with the organization of the production of competitive products in Russia. It is not surprising that the main topic for conversations among sociologists and financiers at the head of the high-tech industry remains Cyprus offshore. The state corporations are turning, despite the high-quality PR, into a latrine where our money and expectations dissolve. Managers have forgotten that the prefix "state" means "our everything."
And this is a betrayal and undermining the country's defense. I wonder where the Manturovs will run when the American drones start circling over the Kremlin?
