MOSCOW, April 5. /TASS/. Russian President Vladimir Putin said on Tuesday it would be useful to analyze the experience of the Soviet defense industry’s work during World War Two.
"As for turning to the experience of the beginning of the Great Patriotic War involving the effort to relocate Soviet defense enterprises, modern armed struggle methods are such that it won’t be necessary to move any facilities," the Russian president said.
Putin made this statement at a meeting of the organizing committee for the celebrations of the 71st anniversary of the Soviet Union’s victory over Nazi Germany in the Great Patriotic War of 1941-1945. The Russian president commented on a proposal by Deputy Prime Minister Dmitry Rogozin to analyze the Soviet Union’s experience in organizing the defense industry’s work during the Great Patriotic War.
"But, undoubtedly, there is sense in analyzing how production was organized, especially in the defense sector," Putin said.
"We need to understand today what we have to do and how to do it. So, it is useful to look at the experience of the past, the positive experience," Putin said.
The Russian leader also said that the social, educational and scientific components were important for preserving in the people’s historical memory all that had been done during the war.
"This is extremely important work for all of us," Putin said.
