    Russia has nothing to do there .... They will invest money, but they won’t be able to defend Russia's interests ... The Russian fleet is too weak today for this ... and it’s impossible to survive without a fleet across the seas ...

    The Suez Canal could soon become the place where Russian shipbuilders and ship repairmen can demonstrate their high professional level.

    With these words, the first thing that came to mind was how, already, they swung Egypt fellow , and "Zvezda" has already been completed? request Have you completed the dock for "Admiral Kuznetsov"? No. Moreover, now they are running, they will start to moan about the Aswan Dam and shed tears about forgiven loans crying
    Then I thought and looked, why not? Shipbuilding Corporation "AK Bars"

    - this is Tatarstan, specializing in the construction of ships and vessels of small displacement (MRK for the Caspian, river ships and tankers, etc.) and bridge construction. Apparently, their experience is not in demand at Zvezda and Zvezdochka. Perhaps the scale is not the same. As far as I imagine, no one was going to build new shipyards in Tatarstan. Why don't they go to the external market? Quite a sensible idea.
    JSC "Center for Shipbuilding and Repair Technology" St. Petersburg,

    It consists of research laboratories, design and engineering divisions for the creation and modernization of shipyards, shipyards, hydraulic structures and engineering industries, providing coast-based marine equipment, design and manufacture of ship fittings and other systems.

    In the Far East, there seems to be nothing to design, "Zvezda" is being built, in the north the dock for repairing an aircraft carrier is already being modernized.
    The result is just the normal work of enterprises, they go to the foreign market, look for orders. All in all, the good news. good

    We should at least fill our bumps on the county roads with Egyptian sand, otherwise we are tired of these "gullies-rivers-crayfish", you go as if on a washboard ..... Yes, again we began to equip our new "brothers", then Syria, then Egypt, then Venezuela, and themselves up to their ears in shit, since the time of Ivan the Terrible, and now, and until the end of the century.

    Is it not professional experience that they remembered how the prisoners dug the Belomor-channel or the Volga-Donskoy and dug up a lot of things on people's bones for soldering! And where are the shipbuilders and ship repairmen - professionals, aren’t they the ones who build the destroyer or frigates for 7-9 years, aren’t they the ones that drowned the only large dock in the Northern Fleet?
