MOSCOW, April 09. /ITAR-TASS/. Russia does not buy electronic components for its nuclear-missile shield abroad; the components are designed and manufactured only domestically, the director general of the Ruselectronics holding company, a subsidiary of the Russian state corporation Rostec, said Wednesday.
“Our top-priority task is to create manufacturing facilities for the electronic component base, which is required for critical niches in the sphere of the country’s defense capacity,” Andrey Zverev said, adding that the nuclear-missile shield is an example of such a niche.
“Here, this task has currently been solved in full: 100% of the component base for these purposes is designed and manufactured in the Russian Federation,” Zverev said.
The Ruselectronics chief recalled that most electronic components used in the world are produced in Southeast Asia, with 70% of all global electronic devices manufactured by Taiwan.
Ruselectronics is part of strategically important dual-purpose assets of the Rostec corporation. As a holding and management company, Ruselectronics unites 123 enterprises of the radioelectronic industry.
