    It would be better not to add to the lists, but to help with money and establish control over their spending ...
    Reminiscent of the Soviet "Drummer of Communist Labor", "Advanced Collective Farm", etc.
    And so it is clear that the company produces products that are known all over the world, the Kalashnikov brand is known on all continents, but the enterprise itself has been “finished to the handle” ...
    It’s like AvtoVAZ for several decades, it’s been a matter of almost the same model ...

        The fact of entering the strategic list already says a lot, now they definitely will not let it collapse! Just a couple of years ago I was on the verge of bankruptcy and there was a real danger of losing it! And now, by God, everything will be fine gradually, for many centuries to this concern!

          Now they’re definitely not going to let it fall!

          Not a fact, not a fact at all. In our country, absolutely everything is possible and there is no need to go far for examples.

            Perhaps this may be all, but to a greater or lesser extent, and the very fact that they remember and at least do something, even if so far only to add to the list, is already a positive factor!

    AK Kalashnikov brand is known all over the world. It would be nice not to lose the reputation of real quality weapons.

    the name itself is absurd. An enterprise producing weapons in itself, by definition, is already strategic.

    From recent news:
    ““ The AK-12 assault rifle and other products based on it did not pass preliminary tests and were not declared at all for state tests. Instead, a state-of-the-art machine named after Degtyarev was chosen as a combat complex for Ratnik equipment, ”Izvestia was told in the headquarters Ground forces. "

    No gentlemen Degtyarovtsy - AK-12! Warrior! Russia! ... Forever! lol

    Ask me slow-witted. Here is the financial report:
    Rostec's revenue in 2012 amounted to 931 billion rubles, net profit - 38,5 billion rubles.
    those. profit +38,5 billion RUR?

    Did I understand correctly? That, thank God, the plant from unprofitable switched to profit, albeit only + 4,1% but even then GOOD after many years of black numbers.

    And it will be pleasant to all of us when the new "State Corporation" of new salaries for the general director adds a salary to everyone from the designer, technologist to workers. So that the REPUTATION of "Russian gunsmiths" would again rise among the people and youth.

    New cadres are needed, soon the old generation of 50-60 year olds will leave and who will remain?
