In the Russian Federation, the implementation of hidden measures of the so-called “industrial mobilization” of companies and enterprises of the defense sector has begun.
This is stated in the message of the General Directorate of Intelligence of the Ministry of Defense, reports Ukrinform.
As it is noted, in particular, in the Rostec company, since the beginning of August, a ban on vacations has been introduced for the entire management team and a large part of the working staff. In some companies that are part of “rostec”, “indefinite leave postponement” applies to 100% of employees.
Also, intelligence sources emphasize, the Military-Industrial Commission of the Russian Federation (chairman of the commission is Putin) is preparing changes to the state defense order program for 2022, which provide for an increase in costs by 600-700 billion rubles. Approval of the changes is expected in early September.
The purpose of the hidden “industrial mobilization” is to ensure the conduct of hostilities on the territory of Ukraine. At the same time, similar measures are expected to be introduced at other defense enterprises of the Russian Federation in the near future, the General Directorate of Intelligence adds.
According to Ukrainian intelligence, the state company “Rostech” currently includes more than 800 companies and enterprises in various industries. The corporation’s portfolio includes up to 40% of the total volume of state defense orders and priority civilian programs.
