I believe it's a private contractor producing products for the Russian military (and others). Having worked for a private defense contractor I can
assure you that security is not all it's cracked up to be.
In the UK or USA there would be higher security, but in Russia there is much more corruption, far more cutting back and far less care taken by private
Most security relies on the process of self-policing. Basically, we could all jump fences, but because the fence is there we don't. There might be a
sign on it saying "Trespassers will be shot", but how many times has it actually happened?
All it takes is for someone to have the balls to test it and they'd find just how easy it was to breach, that the cameras don't work, that the guard
is asleep (if he's even there). Does this look like the kind of place that they patrol every hour and check every single door? No chance, they'd
need a security team of 20 to do that in this kind of complex.
Besides, you can have all the security measures in the world and people daring to test it will find ways through. I know of at least three office
robberies that happened during the middle of the day and committed by people in suits who walked in off the street and staff used their cards to swipe
them up to the directors floor, held doors open for them, they even got one guy a cup of coffee! All they did was ooze confidence.
