YALTA, October 3. /TASS/. Asian hardware components are equal to the US analogues in price and quality, Director General of the Ruselectronics holding (a subsidiary of Russian Technologies State Corporation — Rostec) Andrey Zverev said on Friday.
As the United States has refused to supply to Russia the electronic components, he said, “We are already importing them from Southeast Asia, including China.” Answering a question on the quality and price of Asian products, the Ruselectronics head said, “Basically, their price is lower and quality — not worse.”
As for the timeframe of Russia’s transition to its own hardware components, this issue is rather complicated, Zverev said. “We don’t want to replace everything, it is impossible. Well, there is also international division of labor, and many countries in the world have cooperated and continue to cooperate with Russia,” he said.
“Naturally, the national security spheres, first of all, the nuclear-missile shield, should have their own hardware components and they have them,” Zverev said. He said back in spring that Russia’s nuclear-missile shield did not depend on electronic imports — Russia develops and produces 100% of the hardware components for these purposes.
Head of the United Rocket and Space Corporation Igor Komarov said previously that in the conditions of sanctions, Russia would order microelectronics and machine tools for the industry in Southeast Asia.
