The defense Minister noted that “the project implementation will allow to move to a single non-profit structure of the military-construction complex, and give it the status of a single artist”. He also highlighted the benefits of public-law company.

“First, it provides an opportunity to bring the construction of military facilities from the commercial sector. Secondly, to ensure maximum security status property of the complex. And finally, to guarantee the observance of state interests at the expense of a special regime of internal and external audit”, – said the Minister.

The active transformation of the military-construction complex of the Ministry of defense began with the liquidation of the Spetsstroy of Russia in 2017. By the time of questions to the structure created in the Soviet era, and who could not really move on the rails of market economy, has accumulated more than enough. A huge amount of construction in progress, budget black holes, the failure to date is important for army construction projects and, finally, criminal cases contractors — all this has forced the defense Ministry to go on an extreme measure — to be abolished.

But to build something in the interests of the army have not decreased. On the contrary, the pace of construction of military infrastructure in recent years, just a record. For example, in 2013-2018 built more than 14 thousand buildings and structures. Moreover, if in 2013 was commissioned 531 object, in 2018 already 3573. As they say, feel the difference.

And now determined who will replace Spetsstroy in the work on the construction of military infrastructure in the interests of the defense Ministry, including in the Arctic.

At the Board meeting of the Ministry of defense discussed approaches to forming the organizational structure of the Military construction public-law company. According to Sergei Shoigu, first of all it concerns “of its branch network, determining necessary assets to carry out the functions and powers, as well as lists of state contracts, the obligations under which shall be transferred to the company”.

Commented on “MK” important decision in the field of military construction, member of the expert Council of the Russian organization “Officers of Russia”, the former Deputy chief of the 53rd Central design Institute of the Ministry of defense of Russia Alexander Perendzhiev:

The benefits of this company is that it will provide a transparency and publicity of financial activities. This greatly reduces the risks of corruption among employees. All services will be directly under the audit of the accounting chamber and other financial control authorities — the Central Bank and Rosfinmonitoring.

Form open public non-profit company will allow you not just to counteract and prevent corruption risks and to prevent. Fighting corruption is a means to beat up, to warn her is a more efficient way.

As to abolished the Federal Agency, he worked as a state paramilitary structure, which is actually a hard subject to control in terms of financial transactions and execution of state orders. It was created, in fact, in Soviet times, but was forced to act in market conditions, which generated a lot of corruption risks. The new structure will be deprived of Soviet “darling” spots and semi-commercial sins of Spetsstroy.
