Media Review December 12, 2018

The significance of the Baku plant of deep-water jackets, the rise in prices for building materials, and the absence of an equestrian monument in the country are the topics of today's media.

The Azerbaijan newspaper writes about the history of the creation of the Baku deep-water jackets plant and its role in the production of oil.

The plant was built 40 years ago. At that time, at the level of the Soviet leadership, there was a dispute as to exactly where to build the plant, since all non-gas republics needed it.

As a result of the intervention of Heydar Aliyev, the plant was built in Baku. The significance and role of the plant increased after the signing of the "contract of the century," the author writes. He cites the words of Heydar Aliyev "if this plant had not been built in our country on time, then the oil contracts that could be implemented would not have been so successful."

The website writes about a significant rise in prices for the building materials market, in particular, a rise in price has touched the stone-cube, given that the cube stone is produced in the country.

While earlier it cost 40-42 gapik apiece, now it is 48-50 gapik. Experts confirm the rise in price of stone by 1.6%, and construction brick by 7.7%.

According to experts, one of the reasons for the rise in price is the requirement for stone quarries to pay taxes and close many quarries. All this affects the cost of production, the price of which is rising.

The website talks about the absence of a normal monument of a rider on a horse in Azerbaijan. The author recalls the creation by the Kazakh sculptor Marad Mansurov of the monument Koroglu, which has been installed in the Turkish city of Bolu.

The monument weighs 500 tons, and its height is 70 meters. The current monument Koroglu in Baku has been repeatedly criticized. It seems that its creator has never seen a horse or a horseman.

Former MP Sabir Rustamkhanly believes that the monument to Koroglu should be re-created.
