Russia does not purchase an electronic component base for its nuclear missile shield abroad; electronics for this purpose is developed and manufactured only in our country.
This was announced to journalists by the general director of the holding "Roselectronika" (part of the Rostec state corporation) Andrei Zverev.
“Our first task is to create production facilities for an electronic component base, which is necessary to have for critical niches in the country's defense capability,” he said. The head of the holding noted that for Russia such a niche is a nuclear missile shield.
“Here, this task has now been fully resolved: 100 percent of the component base for these purposes is being developed and produced in the territory of the Russian Federation,” said Zverev. He recalled that at present most of the global electronic component base is produced in Southeast Asia, while about 70 percent of all world electronics is made by Taiwan.
“Roselectronica” is included in the block of strategically significant dual-use assets of Rostec State Corporation. Currently, “Roselectronika” as a holding and management company includes 123 enterprises of the radio-electronic industry.
