Zvezda yard employees will march to Vladivostok

As reported by Bellona Web last week, the manager of Zvezda Navy yard, Valery Maslakov, went to Moscow in order to force the state to cover debts to the shipyard. Apparently the trip brought no results.

According to the labour union at Zvezda, utilization of the yard’s industrial capacity is down to 30%, while salary delays are no less than 6 months. The debts amount to 27.5 million USD, including some 10.4 million USD for salaries.
