Russian army left without new weapons

The state defense order-2011 scandal has been smoldering since the beginning of May, occasionally exploding with instructions from the president / prime minister and indignant interviews with the heads of enterprises of the military-industrial complex (MIC). In fact, there is nothing special about meeting deadlines and deliveries. And the reasons for this have not changed for many years:


Enterprises point to bureaucratic delays, due to which even contracts are concluded with a great delay, not to mention the transfer of money;
The problem is aggravated by the lack of state guarantees for loans to which MIC enterprises are forced to resort because of cash gaps that arise;
High level of corruption when placing orders;
The military complain about unreasonably high prices (of course, because they contain interest on loans and kickbacks) and the poor quality of the products;
Inconsistent actions of the president and the prime minister on setting deadlines for signing contracts.

But this year the situation was even more problematic than usual. In July, Yury Solomonov, General Designer of the Moscow Heat Engineering Institute (under the peaceful name, hides the Bulava developer), complained that no contracts had yet been concluded, “and this hasn’t been the last 14 years. At the latest, we signed contracts for the current year at the end of April - mid-May. And then it led to convulsive-convulsive actions of the industry. ”

The system, which at the very least worked in recent years, suddenly failed for a reason - it did not cope with sharply increased volumes of money and supplies. Plus, a new face appeared in the well-established pattern of cooperation and informal relations between officials and directors of enterprises - the new deputy minister of defense in charge of the financial unit, Tatyana Shevtsova. Defense Minister Anatoly Serdyukov clearly took the former subordinate to deal with the question that weapons experts have been asking for the last five years: after all, why are the volumes of supplies growing obviously disproportionate to the amount of money allocated?

Since 2005, the state defense order has grown more than once in 3 (in billions of rubles)

    One of the betrayals of anti-Soviet power is evident in this phrase: "The military complain about unreasonably high prices (of course, because they put in interest on loans ..."

    Explain to me why and to whom, in addition to people with dual citizenship who own banks, need to pay interest on loans? There is a government with its own treasury; there is an institute of heat engineering. The government orders the product to the institute and pays from the treasury for it. All.

    Where in this chain, Mlyn, credit !? All the same, there is no other money, except for the people's money, in the country! Or what, are the military already making foreign clubs with a mace? Well then, I take off my hat to the financial genius of Putin or the one who planted this for us.

      You can see right away that you have nothing to do with the military, the military-industrial complex or the government.
      In order to produce something, the plant needs to purchase materials, pay energy and labor of workers, then hand over the products to military acceptance and only after that the Ministry of Finance will pay, perhaps this year, but fastest next year (the highest percentage of rollback is on this stage). And money is needed, as they say, “yesterday”, and the factory directors are forced to bow to commercial banks. Plus inflation (the beast of which everyone knows, but everyone draws in his own way).
      I can assure you that Putin’s financial genius has nothing to do with this scheme of financing defense orders, say thank you to the dashing times of Yeltsin. As far as I understand the situation, it was precisely for the “cutting of the Gordeev knot” of financing the State Defense Order that they put the former head of the tax department in defense ministry, but it began to be entered “in the wrong steppe”.

    armament experts have been asking the last five years: after all, why are the supply volumes clearly growing out of proportion to the amount of money allocated? --- because ruble houses and accounts in foreign banks are growing proportionally.

    Recently there was an article on the site about the Russian financial system that the Central Bank is a private organization (following the example of the US Federal Reserve) and cannot lend to the government and its programs, so the state is forced to take loans from Western banks or the IMF. Since finances are in the wrong hands, the financing of the military-industrial complex and other state programs is also there. So I understood this system, apparently the very dog ​​is buried here.

    Our dogs are not buried anywhere - they run on Rublevka and in other cities.

    But what about the officials' reports that everything is fine with the military order, they found the perpetrators of the disruption, publicly uncovered, removed someone. Word, the leadership of the Moscow Region is in chocolate. But where is the money, Vasya? Putin ordered, Serdyukov pushed the problem, Ivanov reported, Medvedev recalled the executions, but things are still there. The army did not have the latest armaments. Soon we will go with batons to a likely enemy. So there will not be enough forest for them. China will take everything. The trains with round timber go day and night.
