How will officials be punished for the failure of import substitution at Russian car factories?

More recently, many have laughed at the fact that the President of the Federation Council, Valentina Matvienko, was amazed at the need to import … nails, although Russia itself is a major producer and exporter of metals. In the automotive industry, the situation turned out to be critical: without foreign sensors, blocks and many other parts, it became impossible to produce even Russian LADA models. Although in recent years officials have competed with each other to report on import substitution success.

For example, Andrei Klishas, ​​head of the Federation Council Committee on Constitutional Legislation and State Building, publicly stated that import substitution only exists on the pages of industrial department reports, but in reality, the program has completely failed.

But will at least one official be punished for the fact that the replacement of imports was only on paper? It looks like yes. So, Deputy Minister of Trade and Industry Alexander Morozov, who oversaw the auto industry, was suddenly relieved of his post.

Anonymous (and not only) telegram channels assure that Mr. Morozov has just paid with his post for the failure of the concerned ministry in the field of import substitution. But there is no official confirmation of these statements. And of course that won’t happen.

Instead, it was announced that the vacant position would be filled by Deputy Prime Minister of Tatarstan, head of the Ministry of Industry and Trade of the Republic, Albert Karimov. And this appointment sends a fairly transparent message: in Tatarstan, production is developing much more actively than in many other regions of the country.

In addition, if last April turned out to be extremely difficult for domestic automakers, then the Chelny KamAZ survived this “black month” very well. And just in many ways – thanks to the ability to create equipment without the participation of foreign partners.
