MOSCOW, October 7 (Itar-Tass) —— The Governmental Military Industrial Commission will consider a draft of state defense procurements 2012 in the middle of November, a Commission representative told Itar-Tass on Friday.
“The meeting due in mid-November will focus on the draft of state defense procurements in 2012 and the period of 2013-2014,” he said, adding that the placing of defense orders for next year had not begun.
“Next year’s contracts are not even being negotiated,” a source in the defense sector said. Some orders of 2011 have not been placed either, such as the orders for nuclear-powered multi-role submarines of Project 885 ‘Yasen’ and strategic missile carrying submarines of Project 955 Borei. There are still no contracts with the United Aircraft Corporation (UAC) and the Moscow Thermal Technology Institute.
Defense Minister Anatoly Serdyukov told the newspaper Komosmolskaya Pravda earlier that they had to place only 20 billion rubles worth of defense orders for next year.
“State defense orders 2012 have been practically placed. Slightly more than 20 billion out of 580 billion ruble contracts are yet to be signed,” he said.
