It was not possible to “import replace” the chips in the Russian Federation, so they decided to ask Lukashenka for help.
Russian media report that soon enterprises from the Russian Federation will receive microelectronics from the Belarusian manufacturer – JSC “Planar”. Interfax.ru writes that Russia and Belarus have agreed to supply critical electronic components.
Recently, President of Belarus Lukashenko visited the Planar enterprise, which produces electronics. During this visit, he noted that a list of electronics that Belarus will supply to Russia has been approved, and a road map has been developed. The politician stressed that the first batches of products have already been sent to the Russian Federation. In addition, he told reporters about the agreement to create a Belarusian-Russian production of templates for the manufacture of microcircuits. In his opinion, both countries will be able to reduce their dependence on foreign components and technologies.
Lukashenka emphasized that Belarus would be able to provide Russia with a replacement for Western microelectronics, because the country has “all the necessary competencies.” The politician hopes that the Russian Federation will increase orders by purchasing chips and various components for the needs of state corporations like Rosatom, Roskosmos and Roselectronics.
Vice Prime Minister of Belarus Piotr Parkhomchik said that in 7 years Belarus will try to increase revenues from sales of its microelectronics by 3.3 times compared to 2021, that is, up to $330-350 million
