When the media talks about the success of the Russian economy and the opening of new factories and plants, such news cause dual feelings. The emergence of new jobs is, of course, good and great, but at the same time, another moment behind the scenes remains.
It so happened that since 1991, the new owners of Russia have perpetrated such a rout of the domestic economy and destroyed so many factories that even Hitlerite gauleiters, who are known to be very careful with the production facilities in the occupied territories, would be horrified by such a pogrom.
As is known, in 1941 year, in accordance with the decree of the State Defense Committee No. 99ss of 11 in July, it was ordered to evacuate factories and plants from those territories that were threatened with occupation. Everything that could not be evacuated was subject to destruction. Nevertheless, zealous Nazis were able to put into operation most of the blasted factories and plants and to establish the production of much-needed Reich products.
What happened half a century later would surely have caused a state of shock among the Nazis. Domestic “businessmen”, who grabbed hundreds of factories and plants as a result of predatory privatization, turned out to be a hundred times worse than the Nazis, having only managed to ruin the captured production facilities and increase the army of the Russian unemployed.
In order not to be unfounded, it is worthwhile to look at the martyrology of the destroyed factories and plants and after that to draw a rather simple conclusion: the fascist invasion in 1941, with all its horrors, turned out to be flowers. But the berries hatch after 1991 year. And the post-Yeltsin years were especially destructive for the Russian economy, when the destruction of Russian plants and factories became widespread.
Moscow factory "Dynamo" conducts its history from 1897 year. The plant survived the revolution, the Civil War, the Great Patriotic War, but could not survive the pogrom of a democratic era. The country's largest manufacturer of electrical equipment, whose products were known throughout the world, fell victim to "effective managers." Currently, the Dynamo plant is an abomination of desolation and, of course, offices. Where are without them. The colossal funds invested in the Soviet years in the development of the enterprise went to pieces, as did the work of entire generations. We will modestly keep silent about the labor collective thrown out on the street ...
AZLK Automobile Plant appeared in 1930 year. In those years when, according to liberal historians, our country was ruled by Bolshevik cannibals led by executioner Stalin. Nevertheless, for some reason, the Bolshevik cannibals built factories, but the white and fluffy democrats, headed by ex-mayor Luzhkov, hurried to lie down under their French partners and take a more comfortable position. Heavenly, of course. Now the ex-AZLK, which changed its name to Avtoframos, produces low-cost cars for the third world countries. And this is not bad, since we managed to save at least some jobs. Although most of the territory AZLK ideal for filming postapocalyptic films.
The same can be said about ZIL. The “winds of change” and “effective managers” led by the same husband, the billionaire E. Baturina, brought the plant to the point that now it conducts illegal tours, similar to those that take place in Chernobyl. Both Chernobyl and ZIL became forbidden zones because of catastrophes: one because of ecological, and the other because of democratic. Once ZIL produced one of the best limousines in the world, trucks and very high-quality refrigerators that worked without problems for more than 30 years, and now “effective managers” turned the plant into a decoration for films about the Third World War. If salvo installations and a pair of artillery divisions worked in ZIL, it would have looked better. But there is no more destructive force in the world than “effective managers.” Especially from among the Austrian retirees and their changers.
The lot of the plant is predetermined: the precious Moscow land has long attracted all sorts of "investors" who sleep and see, as it were, as soon as possible to master the desired hectares. So what about the factory ZIL, the firstborn and the flagship of the domestic automotive industry, it has long been possible to speak only in the past tense. If something that will continue to produce a semi-cohesive stub of a car factory in the future, these are components for foreign automakers or, again, to assemble a “screwdriver” for foreign cars.
Those readers who still remember Soviet audio and video equipment will surely say a couple of kind words about such brands as Rubin and Vega. Berd Production Association "Vega" appeared on the basis of Kharkov plant number 1941 evacuated in 296 year. In 1946, the ogre cannibal Stalin transformed the plant into an independent enterprise, and since then the Vega brand has become one of the most desirable acquisitions from domestic music lovers. Of course, the new democratic masters did not want to put up with the legacy of the cannibal Soviet past, and in the year 1998, the Vega software went bankrupt. Or it was bankrupt. Why new owners are not smart enough to make their own enterprise work efficiently is a mystery. But in general, this example is very indicative of the Yeltsin era. Wood chopping - chips fly. The labor collective was put out on the street without a piece of bread - who cares about such “trifles” in the era of the tennis president exhausted by Narzan?
The example of the Rubin MTZ is even more indicative. If Vega was one of the most popular audio labels in the USSR, then Rubin TVs were out of competition. Of course, they did not reach the level of Sony or Philips, but often Rubin TVs worked for more than a decade, and this was something that went without saying. If this company was managed by smart and competent people, and not “effective managers,” then Rubin would have every chance to remain the current brand, rather than become Gorbushkin Dvor.
The Bolshevik fools, over whom only lazy people are not laughing now, built a plant in 1932, and for more than 60 years the company worked for the good of the country, enduring military hard times and evacuating, but was powerless before the semi-adequate team of “effective managers” who turned the honored brand “Rubin” "In the anecdotal" Hill ". In the martyrology of the destroyed domestic factories in the column “Date of death”, “Rubin” is 2003 year. But we are told that it seems like these were “fat" years ...
Why are there TVs and turntables! The domestic economy was killed much more widely. In the end, “rubies” and “vegs” pushed “samsungi” and “technics” out of the market, and there was no replacement for them, but what about, for example, the Krasny Proletary plant or Vladivostok Dalzavod plant? Something to replace them?
If someone does not know, then the “Red Proletarian” existed right from the 1857 of the year until… correctly, until the “fat” era, when, in fact, it was buried alive. The plant survived four kings, all general secretaries, a revolution, two world wars, but could not survive the plague of post-perestroika "managers" who drove him to the grave. Previously, the plant produced machines and was distinguished by unique productions that any country would be proud of, but in the post-Yeltsin era, the only thing that interested new owners of life was not the plant itself, and certainly not the people who worked on it, but the land that he held. For her now there is a serious squabble over the corpse of the enterprise, about which everyone has long forgotten. "Businessmen" need as soon as possible to throw out the mortal remains, so that they do not occupy the golden metropolitan area.
An even more interesting story with Dalzavod. Once the ships of the Pacific Squadron served at this enterprise, the very ones that heroically fought and died in Tsushima, and then, in the Soviet era, the ships of the Pacific fleet USSR. But then perestroika began, and a lover of narzan with his henchmen rose in power. As a result of the “reforms”, only the name remains of the previous “Dalzavod”. Korean SUVs are assembled in its workshops, and 1165 workers have been sent to "free swimming", since present-day Russia does not need their professional skills. Children of sunny Uzbekistan, even for three kopecks, can also fasten the wheels to the “ssang yongs,” and let the Vladivostok workers solve their problems themselves.
Is it any wonder that a beer restaurant and shopping centers will be built on the site of the former workshops of Dalzavod - that is, without which the workers and their families obviously cannot do? As for the repair of the Pacific Fleet ships, everything is not so sad: there will be some nook for them, especially since these retirement-age ships do not have much left. In the future, they will probably be “optimized” by “effective managers,” and the Russian fleet will soon be equal to North Korean or Taiwanese.
Tsushima, speak? Unmatched disaster? You seem to have a bad idea of what “effective managers” are capable of. But what the North Koreans and Taiwanese will definitely not be is a beer restaurant on the former territory of a once regime object. So we are again ahead of the rest.
But "Dalzavod" is not alone. You can recall Petrozavodsk shipyard "Avangard". Restless cannibal, Stalin could not calm down, and the Avangard factory was born in 1939 year. Well, nothing can be done: Joseph Vissarionovich loved to build plants, do not feed him with bread. And not only them. Avangard existed for exactly 70 years, until the misfortune in the face of brilliant managers struck it.
The death sentence of the company was signed in 2010 year, and since then Avangard has taken its place in the martyrology of destroyed domestic factories. What happened to the workforce does not make sense to mention once again. It also does not make sense to talk about the means and labor invested in this enterprise. There are no new owners for this. It seems that their goal is the same - to bring Russia to the level of Senegal, and in this they succeed, even ahead of plans.
If someone doubts, then you can look at the Saratov aircraft factory. Sometime in the USSR, very good planes were built, but after 1991, the tennis president and his successors are somehow more looking towards the American aircraft industry. So the pride of the domestic aviation industry Il-96 recently received a black mark. As for the Saratov Aviation Plant, this enterprise, founded by the same restless Stalin in 1932, was declared bankrupt in 2010, the 30-thousandth team has long been dispersed, and now the IKEA market stands in place of the factory-plundered and torn buildings. SAZ survived the German Luftwaffe raid in 1943, which left the factory’s ruins, but was revived and then produced Yakovlev aircraft for many years, but what it could not survive was the post-perestroika industrial genocide.
The list of destroyed domestic factories and plants can be continued indefinitely. That’s what the Democrats have done, and even exceeded the plan, is to destroy their own economy and throw hundreds of thousands (if not millions) of people on the street. The saddest thing is that even the Nazis, who, as history shows, were interested in saving jobs and industrial production, would not have behaved in this way. But after 1991, Russia was confronted with something more terrible than the Nazis, with some phenomenon that, if it can be described, then only from a medical point of view. And his name is “erosion”. Those same erosion, decay, rotting alive, that established in our country. Erosion devoured hundreds of factories and mills, threw them out into the streets and drove into the graves thousands of worthy people who remained unclaimed and thrown out of life.
If democracy has been established in Russia since 1991, in its present form it deserves more condemnation than Nazism. Only Nazism had its own Nuremberg, but Russian democracy is unlikely to be like that. Although everything that has been going on in Russia over the past 25 years, has long deserved a separate, close trial. Which, unfortunately, is unlikely to ever be possible ...
