It should be noted that at the moment the readiness of two enterprises - for the production of Kalashnikov assault rifles (AK-103) and ammunition for them - is about 70%. At one time, construction was suspended, including due to financial difficulties, as well as the work of the general contractor. Now there has been a change of the general contractor, and according to the new plans, the plants will be completed in 2016-2017.

      But if you steal a bag of potatoes, they immediately say they will condemn and sit down, hence the conclusion: the more they steal, the less likely they will be caught. request

      Yes, it's just hypnosis of large numbers. If you wager not in rubles, but in $, then the amounts will be perceived more calmly.

      Do not worry how much our stolen no one will ever know.
      Corruption is everywhere. They simply accustom us, and forcefully rub into our heads, which is worse than in the Russian Federation. But truly people are people.

      So theft was similarly produced under their rule. In 2012 thefts were revealed, and they were made earlier.

      So just at that time Serdyukov was the Minister of Defense (2007 - 2012).

    Interestingly, did the Venezuelans buy a license or, as always, according to the Chinese principle / NA KHALIAVY /?

      19 countries have official licenses (not expired). How many countries produce Kalashnikov according to the "Chinese principle" is not amenable to counting. I'm not even talking about countries that produce Kalash under other brands.

        On the fence was also written "..." / x, ygrek, zet (with 90 ° rotation and reflection) /. If you try to quote on this site = you will get a defeat in your rights, and mb. "ten years without the right to correspond". It seems to me that the license will be "like the Chinese". Conclusion? Supply them with blanks on the trunks in the amount of a tenth of the declared release. And if the Kalashnikov concern will not unfasten the money, let them mold it from Steel 4.

      Bought a license, but our loan. Venezuela is now poor as a church mouse, so it will be given for a long time. Especially when you consider that the key to participation in the development of oil fields.

    It is on these thieves that we need to test the first batch of Kalash produced ... there is no hope of thieves there too ... the only treatment according to the Chinese method.

    So far, the fate of investigations of not only this, but also of others will be unknown, there will be no sense from all the Kremlin talking rooms. It's time to turn on the brains, and not just plant these creatures, but for life.

    One thing pleases, the Kalashnikov legend does not die, and the main thing is to send these weapons against evil, or at least not against their own people.

    the local community discusses only the last paragraph of the news, which is ABSOLUTELY likened to Ukrop resources (the correspondent and others like them) ... pah on you, drown in the foam of your allegedly creative)). but on the topic: it's good that there will be production, there will be money for a license, there will be salaries for our workers and engineers. add. advertising of our weapons in both americas ... sales will grow for Kalashnikov. someone against?)

    Well, actually this is no secret, and just these days the trial of the creature with the speaking name Popelnyukhov is underway. Why this matter is not given the widest publicity is incomprehensible.
