Abstract. The issue of import substitution in the Russian Federation involves not only high-tech manufacturing industries, but also is of a more general character, related to the self-sustaining development of whole fields of knowledge, skills and their application in practice. Production of components for Russia’s railways has always been a national priority.

In the first half of XXI century, this objective is again relevant to the Russian state.
