“Chuvashia is helping to launch two our plans, the Donetsk and Torez Electrotechnical Plans, ” Nikonorov said. “They now train our people paying in full for their insurance, rent and tuition.  Parts will later be supplied to plants to assemble much-needed electrical substations. I believe we need 452 units in 2022 and 2033, it’s a tremendous order.”
