“It’s a very unfortunate purpose, it is not a trend, at least not what is needed for domestic industry”, — said Emelyanov.
“After all, if not to take into account the criminal aspect of his activities that has not been proven, its activity on a post of the Minister has been very ineffective. He was different in that it actively replaced our production with imports, it conducts essentially exportakademie, when the products of many of our businesses artificially not allowing the Military-industrial Commission, and in return got imported products at dumping prices”, — said the Deputy.
