NUMBER OF INTERVENTIONS
The Russian Government (2015). ПОСТАНОВЛЕНИЕ ПРАВИТЕЛЬСТВА РФ ОТ 4 СЕНТЯБРЯ 2014 Г. N 934 "О НЕКОТОРЫХ ВОПРОСАХ ПРЕДОСТАВЛЕНИЯ ГОСУДАРСТВЕННЫХ ГАРАНТИЙ РОССИЙСКОЙ ФЕДЕРАЦИИ ПО КРЕДИТАМ, ПРИВЛЕКАЕМЫМ ОРГАНИЗАЦИЯМИ ОБОРОННО-ПРОМЫШЛЕННОГО КОМПЛЕКСА ДЛЯ ЦЕЛЕЙ ВЫПОЛНЕНИЯ (РЕАЛИЗАЦИИ) ГОСУДАРСТВЕННОГО ОБОРОННОГО ЗАКАЗА". (Resolution of the Government of the Russian Federation of September 4, 2014 No. 934 "On some issues of granting state guarantees by the Russian Federation on loans given to military-industrial complex organisations for the purpose of fulfilling (implementing) the state defence order"). Available at http://government.ru/docs/19574/
On September 4, 2015, the Government of the Russian Federation approved Decree No. 934. It has two main purposes:
The maturities of the state guarantees were not disclosed. Since the credits they cover under Decrees No. 1060-p/16.06.2014, No. 1825-p/15.09.2014 and No. 2392-p/27.11.2014 expire on 31 December 2018, it may be expected that the state guarantees will remain valid as a minimum until this date because they secure their repayment.
This state measure has the goal of expanding the capacity of the beneficiaries to attract non-budgetary sources of funding and carry out state tasks related to the execution of the state defence orders where the federal funding is received in the form of deferred payments.
The GTA includes state guarantees and other financial incentives that are likely to affect the restructuring and performance of firms facing international competition, whether from imports, in export markets, and from foreign subsidiaries.
