The author of this article brings up a very good point.  In Russia as in many of the more developed countries, the primary manufacturing of equipment is more complex devices.  Because of that the manufacturers have a higher mix of components and lower volumes; therefore they get little attention from the component manufacturers and are forced out into the unauthorized market due to long lead times or obsolete products.  This story about Russian woes is the same for many countries where labor is on the more expensive side.
