Kremlin promises to save Russians from imported goods

The import substitution program, which is being implemented in Russia, will allow a 2.5-time increase in the share of domestic products in the market, said Russian Defense Minister Sergey Shoygu at a meeting with the staff of the Krasmash plant on Friday.

The phasing out of imports, as follows from the minister’s statement, will begin in the coming years. The government has set a goal to increase the share of Russian goods has been set by 2025.

The driving force of the country’s economic development, according to Shoygu, is the military-industrial complex. “Until recently, the economy of the Russian Federation was firmly on “oil and gas needle” and the state’s revenue depended on the energy market conditions. Almost half of the industrial potential in many sectors of the economy was lost, ” TASS quotes Shoygu as saying.

“Russia was an economically backward, torn apart by serious internal contradictions country with a low level of citizens’ well-being, which gave rise to some of our odious partners which allowed call us a “gas station country,” Shoygu said.

But now, according to Shoygu, everything has changed. “Over time, it was possible to reformat social policy, make it more real and meet the needs of ordinary citizens. It was possible to eradicate mass unemployment, to organize on a systematic basis the provision of housing for the population. Maternity capital has been introduced, material support for low-income families is being provided,” the minister said.

He stressed that the changes affected almost all spheres of the country’s economy. These are the inviolability of Russia’s borders, the rule of law, the requirements for representatives of the authorities, the protection of the memory of the defenders of the Fatherland, the social rights and freedoms of Russian citizens.

“Industrial production in many sectors is being restored, large-scale infrastructure projects are being implemented, heavy and light industry and agriculture are actively being developed,” Shoygu said.

  • Shoigy on a Saturday evening in 2021 , tells Russia will abandon 20 years Nazism and return to a Communist economy.
    And tells also 50% of the industrial production was lost under Putinka.

    He will learn to fly soon.

      Not just economically, Shoigy, but culturally, diplomatically and spiritually.

    Save them from imported goods?

    Didn’t they do that back in the old days?

    Sorry comrades, just as you started to get used to driving cars, watching decent Televisions, wearing less expensive clothes and reading books, its going to be whipped away to protect you.

    I didn’t personally think the decline could accelerate any more.

    Just shows that even when you thought things couldn’t get worse you can still be wrong.

    Did something change when I wasn’t looking? Take away Russian oil and gas, what are you left with? Military hardware sold to countries that can’t afford real weapons and hardware that fails on a regular basis.

    This measure means another drop in quality of life for the ruskie sheeple. If you can call life in mafia land a qualitative one. Of course, this means that their masters will continue indulging in the best imports from the West … food, drink, perfumes, cars, watches, jewelry, purses, clothing, shoes … you name it, they will be able to buy it. The sheep not.

    “Industrial production in many sectors is being restored, large-scale infrastructure projects are being implemented, heavy and light industry and agriculture are actively being developed,” Shoygu said.

    Shoygu is a military man. What does he understand about production? Nothing. The fool fails to realize that mafia land can’t produce anything that the world needs or wants. And, the world is already saturated with weapons. And, what he thinks to be done requires money. Lots of it. And competency. Also lots of it. Here too, mafia land is sorely lacking.
