Vladimir Putin had to work hard to find new Ural automakers working on the state defense order. The President was not able to open the passenger door of one of UAZ “Patriot”, converted for the army, then joined the chief armored Directorate of the defense Ministry Alexander Shevchenko, had become even worse and the door handle stayed in his hands.
Inspection of the novelties of the military equipment took place in the framework of the meeting of the state defense order, which the President generally gave a high rating to companies working in the defence industry.
In 2015, the commitments on contracts with MO was performed on 97%. The troops received the order of 4 thousand samples of weapons and military equipment.
About the problems Putin also mentioned: they, according to him, were connected with the implementation of a number of orders. Some of it was overdue, and others altogether frustrated. “It is necessary to consider the reasons why the failures occurred and to suggest measures so that such things will never happen again,” he said.
Of course, on the territory of the Sochi residence of the head of state the military could not deliver the latest anti-aircraft or multiple launch rocket systems. At an impromptu exhibition were submitted to the UAZ Patriot – the car is already well known, but modified for the needs of the army. They told the President Alexander Shevchenko, using different mounts, you can install different caliber weapons, in particular, 12-millimeter machine guns and antitank grenade launchers. Plus the machine has artillery “cellar”. When moving he does not interfere and is not visible. You can buy for the Armed forces” – recommended Shevchenko.
To verify the validity of his words, Putin decided to open the passenger door of one of the “Patriots”, but it wouldn’t budge. Attempts to apply a force to anything did not lead. Then rushed to the aid representative MO, and … door handle left in his hands. However, the Supreme commander decided not to abandon their plans and inspected the interior of the car through the other door. Torn on the handle, he responded with humor, saying tear the handle to General: “well Done!”.

As explained by the developers, the door is not opened because it was blocked. This option is allegedly triggered automatically, with the engine off. For example. But why handle that came off? Apparently, the problems of the state defense order are not limited to failure to meet deadlines. There are also quality issues. And the President can certainly talk with the producers at the following meetings.Related posts:
