“These shipyards may be used effectively for development of military shipbuilding and repair,” he said, noting that shipyards Zaliv based in Kerch and More based in Feodosia could not be integrated in the corporation, because private companies had come in the republic before the corporation. “We have an order to come to terms. If other instructions are given we will fulfill them,” he said.
The domestic major shipbuilding corporation has considered the issue of wharfs in Crimea “frequently and actively”, Rakhmanov said.
Crimean shipyard Zaliv was “extremely interesting” for the corporation, but the latter failed to be so deft as private companies.
Asked which ships may be built at shipyards in Crimea he said, “Today Crimean shipyards, including Zaliv, will not able to engage effectively in civil shipbuilding. A huge dock of shipyard Zaliv will be used to build small-sized ships and warships.
