Speech before the events that led to the coup and the split of Ukraine.
The question arises, what do the current authorities think about, in particular, destroying the last remnants of high-tech science-intensive production in Ukraine? It's about trying to destroy the aviation industry, it's no secret that no one needs Ukrainian aircraft except Russia.
What from the point of view of knowledge-intensive industries for the 22 year of independence did together with Europe? The answer is simple - nothing.
A prospective tank was made with Russia, work continued on the 10 anniversary after the collapse of the USSR, until orange pests came to power during the first Maidan. Work was carried out on aviation topics, because the Russian Federation is the main customer of the Antonov Design Bureau aircraft (except for Cuba, DPRK and Iran, hopes were left), now this will end.
In this respect, the words of the creator of a series of tank diesel engines 6TD N. K. Ryazantseva regarding the cooperation with the West in the field of high technology industry are recalled:
“An instructive for us - the plant workers had a meeting with a NATO representative, Javier Salana. At that time, there was talk of the entry of the former countries of the socialist camp into NATO. We reported that tankers from Poland, Bulgaria, Romania, the Czech Republic came to our factory and were interested in the possibility of upgrading the T-72 tank. Considering that in these countries there are many of these tanks, we offered them our services. After listening to us, Javier Salana said: “I do not agree with this modernization. If you said that as a result of this work, for example, the number of jobs in England, France, and Germany will increase, then we would think. You presented a version of modernization that is performed on our own, so this work is of no interest to us. ” Such an opinion was a cold shower for us, since it contradicted our ideological foundations about the isolation of tank production within our own country. ”
The question arises, are the “moskal on knives” who holed up on the Maidan, “who does not ride that moskal” and their supporters satisfied with the results? After all, these unfortunate, meager, not versed in politics people were also deceived by changing one oligarch for another. Now the interim government, as a lost printer, gives out packs of useless decrees and thoughtlessly, almost every week, changes the leadership of the Ministry of Defense, defense companies, and now they have reached the Antonov concern, having dismissed its head, Dmitry Kivu. Most of the Antonov projects are joint, and without the Russian enterprises, the concern will be able to produce almost nothing, except to sell drawings to China and collect items on a plane a year for the DPRK.
