OMSK, October 4 (RIA Novosti) - The Omsk Region Government and Russian Electronics holding company (Ruselectronics) have signed an agreement to establish a production cluster in the region by the end of 2014 in order to support hi-tech projects, the Omsk Region Government said in a statement.
The new science and production association will include three Omsk-based companies, namely, the Omsk Research Institute of Electromechanical Engineering, Irtysh Production Association and Omsk-based Kozitsky Electromechanical Engineering Plant, as well as two companies from Barnaul and one from Yekaterinburg. The Omsk Research Institute of Electromechanical Engineering will be the head company. The restructuring is to be completed by late 2014. The Omsk Region Government may become one of the co-owners and managers of the new science and production association.
“We are interested in cooperating with the Ruselectronics holding company, and we reaffirm our readiness to provide it with all necessary support in the interests of our enterprises’ development,” said Omsk Region Governor Viktor Nazarov.
Ruselectronics will look into the possibility of involving the new science and production association in establishing technology parks in the Omsk Region and launching cooperation and co-production arrangements with small local innovation companies.
“Omsk will become a regional capital specializing in communications and control systems and networks. This specialization is in extremely high demand, with the Russian Defense Ministry being the main customer, and contract volumes are growing exponentially. Companies involved in the new association have a very good future ahead of them,” Ruselectronics General Director Andrei Zverev noted.

Some people are trying to make the reality in Russia at least a bit more humane. The amnesty should apply not only to persons involved in high-profile cases, but also to individuals who are not as well-known. It is better to set free at least some of the individuals who deserve to be released than no one at all.
