The Sverdlovsk Federal Penitentiary Service proposed replacing IKEA with products from prisoners.
Russian media are discussing a proposal for import substitution by Alexander Fedorov, head of the Sverdlovsk Federal Penitentiary Service.
According to him, cited by the local publication “Oblgazeta”, products that are produced in Russian colonies can replace products, which was produced by foreign companies that left the Russian market.
As an argument, he cites the price-quality indicator, which is higher for Russian convicts than for foreign manufacturers. Substitution is possible “in a number of segments”.
The boss considers his proposal viable, taking into account an important indicator.
“Commodity turnover and the number of people employed in production year they grow from year to year,” he assured.
Fyodorov was supported by his subordinate, the head of the labor adaptation department of the same Federal Penitentiary Service, Ivan Sharkov. He believes that the colonies can “take the place of IKEA.”
The quality produced in the Sverdlovsk penitentiary institutions, said Sharkov, is better, and the prices – below.
He also added that the leadership of the Federal Penitentiary Service is not a businessman, and performs the main task – employment of prisoners.
As RBC clarifies with reference to the data of the Ministry of Industry and Trade, permission for & # 8220; parallel & # 8221; imports have already affected products in the areas of electronics (Apple, Samsung, Asus, Intel, Sony, HP), cars (Jaguar, Porsche, Rolls-Royce, Bentley), rare earth metals, sports equipment, trains and others.
Ironic statements about this appeared on the Web.
So, the TG channel “Nemalakhov” posted a collage that reflects possible “import-substituting” names of brands leaving Russia.
For example, the IKEA brand itself was renamed to “ICENAKH”, and popular products that the company is used to giving names to are called Shkonka (double sofa), Obshyak ( cabinet-showcase), Fraer (mirror), clearly borrowed from the thieves & # 8211; prison jargon.
All priced – the number of blocks of cigarettes per unit of goods, accompanies a comment that uses the name of money in the same slang: “Lave forward”.
“What a waste” , – comment “variations on a theme” the authors of the post.
