Putins plans for the restoration of the Russian Navy

Sounding promises of Russian Prime Minister Vladimir Putin to 2020 in Russia a modern navy for 4.7 trillion rubles puzzled media. Prime Minister announced at the day at the regional conference of the "United Our homeland" in Cherepovets, but neither he nor the military began to spread what exactly goes into the concept of "modern fleet" when the programm starts to create it, as long as it does not markedly, and that will be made directly to it.

It is also unclear whether this includes the sum of two Mistral helicopter carriers worth 1.2 billion euros, which are bought from France, said, "-independent newspaper" in an editorial. In addition, allegations of war impossible to gather a clear picture of the future of the Russian fleet.

For example, in June 2009, Navy Commander Vladimir Vysotsky announced that the Navy will receive instead of traditional carriers marine aviation systems that will include "gallakticheskuyu component, aviation, marine and leading technology in other areas." But it later emerged that the financing of the construction of such ships are not built into the state program of armaments. This was read as Defense Minister Anatoly Serdyukov and Deputy Prime Minister Sergei Ivanov.

As for the construction of new ships for the Russian Navy, the situation is too diverse. "NG" notes that Russian factories them, of course, build, but they are usually for export — to China and India.

Meanwhile, the Russian fleet complemented piece products, while usually refers to the Mosquito Fleet which Putin's statement puzzles "of nuclear deterrence to presence in the world's oceans," of course, is not able to solve, writes, "NG".

The absence of modernizing the Navy said in the past mon Black Sea Fleet Commander Admiral Vladimir Komoyedov. He resented the fact that the Black Sea Fleet have written off "on the needles" large anti-submarine ship "Ochakov", while after the repair. "Pofigizm — said in this regard Komoedov. — Do not create anything new. Rot and drown."

Media: Government ruins for factory-priority ships. Seek out help from the Church and abroad

In Cherepovets regional conference on "United Russian Federation," Putin also said that one of the values will be to create an ice-class vessels. In the middle of the companies that are able to make such orders, and St. Petersburg "Admiralty Shipyards" and "Baltic plant. "Is noteworthy that, as reported by the media," Baltic Shipyard "intentionally trying to bankrupt state-owned company to buy it on the cheap. Putin has promised to sort out the dilemmas.

Difficulties with "Baltic Shipyard" started long ago — when the bank went bankrupt principal owner of the shipyard Sergei Pugachev. On the days of the Arbitration Tribunal Petersburg seized the first floating nuclear power plant, which is being built specifically for this venture. The lawsuit was filed state concern "Rosenergoatom" because of the risk of bankruptcy of the plant, reports the St. Petersburg television channel 100tv.

Management of the shipyard in the absence of funds blames government clients who do not make their own responsibilities. Rosatom had to pay for the ship 1.5 billion rubles. When the work was done at 1 billion rubles, the main customer offered to pay "a non-existent bank bills," said the chairman of the trade union committee "Baltic Shipyard" Vyacheslav Firyulin.

Meanwhile, the acquisition of the ruined factory currently claims the United Shipbuilding Company (USC) — state-owned company, the board of directors which includes senior bureaucrats and representatives of other large state-owned corporations, and the chairman of the board is the Deputy Prime Minister Igor Sechin.

USC is not satisfied with the amount required for the "Baltic Shipyard": the owners expect to receive almost 100 billion rubles, and the government is ready to shell out only about 20 billion rubles. "Plant state needs, but his desire to buy on the cheap, because it is pushed into bankruptcy. Do not give work, loans, and the plant itself will die. Here we work the last six months is not with the help of officials, but in spite of, "- explained Vyacheslav Firyulin.

In the end, the plant must find other customers — both in Russia and abroad. "We have officially declared. Naturally, we are waiting for orders from the country's Russian, but at the moment we profiled on the strip on shipbuilding orders imported from other countries. Try to work with foreigners" — said General Director of JSC "Baltic Shipyard" Andrey Fomichev.

And while foreign orders was not, in the 6th foundry "Baltic Shipyard" pour the metal is not the priority for ice-breakers, and for the Nizhny Novgorod diocese, which commissioned the factory bell.

Putin has promised to give the Navy a quarter of the funds allocated for upgrading

"We have a lot of money allocated for strengthening the defense capability of the country — Putin continued his speech at the conference" ER. "- We have such funds have never been recovered. Russian were the times when, on the contrary, abandoned, there were comparable numbers. New RF — Never — 20 trillion rubles by 2020. "

With all this he highlighted that "we do not need to master billion and trillions, and to the quantity and quality of the products provide." Putin also said that if the defense order should be ensured the profitability of manufacturers — at least 15% in order to have the resources for development, for a decent wage.

Putin also announced that upgrading of the Navy of the Russian Federation up to 2020 will focus 4.7 trillion rubles. "In fact, after a hiatus of many years, we are beginning a huge shipbuilding program from" — said the favorite "ER." "The goal is clear — it is to create a modern fleet, able to solve all the puzzles — from nuclear deterrence to presence in the world's oceans, to protect our economic interests and Bioresources RF"- Said Putin.

He also said that the long-suffering strategic nuclear submarine "Yury Dolgoruky" at the present time "successfully pass the tests," and this year should be transferred to the Pacific Fleet guarding the south-eastern borders of the country, including the Kuril Islands.
