Makhachkala, February 19, 2015. “Dagestan military-industrial enterprises are again in demand”- Dagestan Head Ramazan Abdulatipov stated in the context of his speech, during a working meeting with the deputy Prime Minister of the Russian Federation Dmitry Rogozin.
As it is reported, D. Rogozin oversees the defense sector and the main purpose of his visit on the Caspian coast is to monitor and appraise the military-industrial potential of the republic.
The large defense enterprises and factories located on the territory of Dagestan gave at the time more than 114% of the total Caucasian military products. In this regard, Dagestan had really no rivals. Defense plants and factories and other secret facilities were located in almost all cities and districts of the mountainous region.
At the very beginning of his political career, Ramazan Abdulatipov promised to revive the military industrial facilities in Dagestan and thereby to reduce unemployment rates.
Dagestani leading large engineering enterprises produced separators, electro-technical equipment, tools, machines and the other manufactured goods. The chemical industry enterprises produced phosphorus salts, glass, paints and other products.
The food industry potential is very high in Dagestan. Today, Dagestan food industry enterprises produce canned, fish, wine, vegetables and flour products. Besides, there are still dozens of land and sea based sensitive facilities of special importance.
The arrival of deputy Russian Prime Minister Dmitry Rogozin means that these facilities will soon be in demand and will be qualitatively serviced. Dmitry Rogozin and Ramazan Abdulatipov examined the production facilities of "Dagdizel", "Fine Mechanics plant" and a number of see-based sensitive sites.
The profitability of the republican defense enterprises has been demonstrated on the example of “Dagdizel " plant, a big machine factory in the town of Kaspiysk and one of the oldest and largest industrial enterprises in Dagestan, founded in 1932.
During the Soviet era, Dagdizel plant was one of the leading enterprises producing diesels and torpedoes. The proposed list of goods is just a certain part of the serial production on DagDiesel plant.
Of course, this list does not include the most important production - torpedo technologies and new kinds of offensive weapons (because of state secrecy we cannot disclose the entire range of manufactured products) and the capability of DagDiesel's military facilities.
Now just imagine if other facilities of Dagestan start to put into operation and how many are there jobsites, aren’t there? This project will become one of the key segments in solving socio-economic problems among the population of the Caspian region.
The deputy Russian Prime Minister Dmitry Rogozin was pleased with what he had seen during his visit. According to Dmitry Rogozin about tens of billion rubles will be allocated to Dagestan for developing military-industrial enterprises.
