MOSCOW, September 22. /TASS/. Russia has already substituted more than a half of the components for military electronic devices that it used to import, Ruselectronics CEO Igor Kozlov told journalists on Thursday. The Ruselectronics company designs and produces electronic materials and equipment, it is a part of the Rostec Corporation.
"Roughly speaking, as far as the electronic components are concerned, last year the level of import substitution covered about 35% of the total production, but now it has exceeded 50%," Kozlov said.
He pointed out that products manufactured by Ukrainian companies were completely replaced. "There are no deliveries from Ukraine anymore, but this problem was solved in the first quarter of this year. We don’t import any electronic components form Ukraine anymore, in fact, they have been fully replaced in one year," the Ruselectronics CEO added.
He explained that Russian-made components replaced Ukrainian ones.
At the same time, the CEO said that "the current level of import substitution is not sufficient."
