New Defense Plants Coming

Almaz-Antey plans to build two new production plants in the next two years worth more than $1 billion, Yury Borisov, first deputy chairman of the government defense industry commission, said Friday, Interfax reported.

"The total value of the two new plants is more than $1 billion," Borisov said at a meeting on problems in the defense sector at Almaz-Antey's headquarters.

Scale replicas of the two new plants, which will be located in the Kirov and Nizhny Novgorod regions, were presented to Deputy Prime Minister Dmitry Rogozin. They will engage in batch production of the latest air defense missile systems and components.


… we have a small favor to ask. As you may have heard, The Moscow Times, an independent news source for over 30 years, has been unjustly branded as a "foreign agent" by the Russian government. This blatant attempt to silence our voice is a direct assault on the integrity of journalism and the values we hold dear.

We, the journalists of The Moscow Times, refuse to be silenced. Our commitment to providing accurate and unbiased reporting on Russia remains unshaken. But we need your help to continue our critical mission.

Your support, no matter how small, makes a world of difference. If you can, please support us monthly starting from just $2. It's quick to set up, and you can be confident that you're making a significant impact every month by supporting open, independent journalism. Thank you.
