He noted that the plant “NEVZ-Ceramics” now produces armor ceramics using Russian raw materials from domestic alumina refineries, while previously it had to be bought it abroad.
“Everything for the armor must be domestic – from the source of raw materials to the finished product. Now we are delivering our Novosibirsk ceramics, in which raw materials are domestic.
