On his page on Facebook, a Russian financier Slava Rabinovich commented on the policy of strengthening the military-industrial complex the Russian President Vladimir Putin relies on, Joinfo.ua reports.
Rabinovich expressed his opinion regarding the close collapse of Russia on his page on Facebook.
“A couple of months ago, Vladimir Ryzhkov visited Mikhail Sokolov on air of Radio Svoboda and lamented the fact that Putin’s geopolitical adventures were destroying the Russian military-industrial complex, because a huge part of the supply of components, systems, engines, etc. in the Russian arsenal belonged to the Ukrainian companies. Now they do not cooperate with the Russian military-industrial complex, and the Russian military-industrial complex will be destroyed.
In September 2014, in the first round of the Ukrainian sanctions against Russia, apart from other measures, it was banned to export a number of military goods. Now the government of Ukraine has approved an expanded package of sanctions. It is supposed that the sanctions list will include 156 legal entities and more than a thousand individuals, among whom will surely be many organizations and people from the Russian military-industrial complex.
But if the Russian defense industry, according to Vladimir Ryzhkov, is destroyed, will it be bad?
Russia will not need its military-industrial complex for the next 20-30 years. Russia needs receivership and the Marshall Plan. This statement would be wrong, if the Constitution of the Russian Federation acted in Russia, and there was society in the sense of ‘nation’. But we have nothing, and will not have, as long as it appears with the help of receivership as it was in West Germany after 1945 and de-Nazification.
The Russian military-industrial complex is doomed.
The Russian military-industrial complex has international sanctions imposed against it, which have long hammered the final nail in its coffin by a simple forward contract. The latest weapons of the XXI century and the sanctions against the Russian military-industrial complex are incompatible with each other.
The program of upgrading the Russian army for the period up to 2020 is just the greatest scheme of sawing 20 trillion rubles in the history of Russia, and nothing more. By 2020, some will become very rich, a lot of people will become very poor, but there will be no Russian military-industrial complex, as there will be no XXI century weapons.
When the ‘guns before butter’ choice is made, in the conditions of attacks on other countries and international sanctions, there will be no guns, no butter, no country,” Rabinovich wrote on his page on Facebook.
