Rosvooruzheniye has given a precautionary volley

In the near future a state company Rosvooruzheniye will sign contracts for export of the Russian weapon for the sum about $1,8 billion About it has declared yesterday on a press - conferences in Zhukovsky the general director of the company the general - major Alexander Kotelkin. And on the eve of signing of contracts, Kotelkin is assured, in a press there will pass campaign for management discredit Rosvooruzheniye for which will stand A number of bank groups to which will want to participate in their realisation .

It there was the first a press - management conference Rosvooruzheniye since that moment as Boris Yeltsin has signed the decree assigning coordination of activity Rosvooruzheniye and military - technical cooperation as a whole on Victor Tchernomyrdin. When the decree, in " has been signed; Rosvooruzheniye did not hide the triumph: after all it was possible to beat off from attempts of Ministry of Foreign Economic Relations to give to a state company the status of departmental foreign trade association.
but in some days of premieres, making comments on the decree, has suddenly declared that supposedly for a long time already it is time to understand with this sphere and to introduce there an order. Such in Rosvooruzheniye did not wait. And here also Ministry of Foreign Economic Relations on the instructions of the prime minister began to undertake again attempts to close a state company on itself.
However this Tuesday much has changed. During visiting of an air show MAX - 97 in Zhukovsky Boris Yeltsin has expressed satisfaction work Rosvooruzheniye and personally general Kotelkina.
And consequently yesterday the general director behaved sverhuverenno as if showing firmness of the positions. Has got from Kotelkina to much. To Americans - for dishonest competitive struggle: To us have not allowed to open representation in New York. Russia, the councillor of safety of the United Nations, the rights to participate in the tender for deliveries of technics to United Nations peacekeeping forces have actually deprived. It is a nonsense! to neighbours in the CIS - for short-sightedness: They sell the rests of the weapon from warehouses. But it will proceed until stocks will come to an end. And Ukrainian - the Pakistan contract on delivery of tanks in general is unprofitable from the economic point of view. He obviously subscribed favourites, by a principle ` to steal and escape ` . At last, to the Russian enterprises - to exporters of the weapon: When we learn, how they conduct themselves, it becomes a shame with Russia. It causes an enormous damage to image of the country .
However, head Rosvooruzheniye difficulties do not frighten. To transatlantic competitors he has promised: the Company starts to argue for the first place in traffic in arms. By the end of the year our portfolio of orders will reach $10 billion In 1999 of figure of export of Russia and the USA will be made even . Ukraine and Belarus, recently the sales which have considerably increased volumes, competitors the general at all does not consider: They have already seen enough of the independence. The following step - creation with Russia joint concerns . And as to the Russian exporters the state company management though does not refuse to them this right, but also the leadership does not doubt: 96 % of export are ` Rosvooruzheniye `. Practice has proved that the state company is the most professional structure .
As to threats of the prime minister Kotelkin that is called, has translated arrows: Work of some firms - exporters causes government censures. I think, the prime minister spoke about it. And as to an order I assure you that bolshego the order, than in traffic in arms, is not present anywhere .
