MOSCOW, June 17. /TASS/. The structural, technological and personnel crisis in Russia’s defense industry sector has not been overcome, Deputy Prime Minister Dmitry Rogozin said Wednesday at a meeting of the Industry and Trade Ministry’s board.
"There is a structural, technological crisis in the defense industry sector despite rather strong performance, the production volume and high production efficiency growth indices. It was demonstrated during the May 9 parade, when all our compatriots, not only friends but also enemies, saw capabilities of the revived Russian defense industry," Rogozin said.
"Nevertheless, I can say that the structural and technological crisis in the defense industry sector, as well as the traditional personnel shortage have not been overcome," he said.
Rogozin said one of the key goals of creation of integrated structures in the defense industry is optimization of budget spending during development of specimens of armaments and special equipment, adding that the task has not been resolved yet.
"Despite certain positive dynamics, domestic integrated structures show a low production efficiency and traditional profitability in comparison with Western colleagues, financial imbalances, inefficient workload and insufficient competence," he said, adding that aftersales servicing of equipment is still a soft spot.
