UKROBORONPROM ASKS JOURNALISTS TO BE MORE ATTENTIVE WHEN WORKING WITH RESULTS OF FOREIGN STUDIES Information on military-technical cooperation expansion between UKROBORONPROM enterprises-participants and enterprises of the aggressor country, using the study of the Stockholm International Peace Research Institute (SIPRI), does not correspond to reality. Titles of this kind discredit both Ukrainian defense industry and domestic journalism. The request on the official SIPRI website on deliveries or orders of weapons between Ukraine and Russia will allow getting real facts: there is clear information on termination of deals with deliveries/orders of weapons since 2014: 2014-2016 "Decree of the President of Ukraine №691 / 2014 of 08/27/2014 enacted decision of the National Security and Defense Council of Ukraine on August 27, 2014" On measures to improve military and technical policy of the state." According to subparagraph 7 of paragraph 1 of this paper, exports of military and dual use products to the Russian Federation for military end use of the Russian Federation are stopped, "- said UOP representatives, stressing on fact of keeping this in their work. In December 2016 SIPRI has published updated rating of world manufacturers of weapons, according to which the SC "Ukroboronprom" took 81 st place. The SC “UkrOboronProm” jumped 11 positions up, though this news, for some reason, has not received such wide publicity among domestic media, unlike the news that discredits Ukraine worldwide.  
NONE OF UOP ENTERPRISES TRADES WITH THE AGGRESSOR COUNTRY SINCE 2014 UKROBORONPROM (UOP) enterprises-participants do not sell their products to Russia. This was stated by UOP representatives. "We do not trade with the aggressor country, as provided by the order of the Cabinet of Ministers of Ukraine in 2014. The Concern controls so that the enemy receives no nut. It is possible that other defense plants that are not part of the SC"Ukroboronprom" continue to cooperate with Russia, breaking the law. However, our enterprises strictly adhere to the regulations of the state ", - stressed UOP representatives. From the middle of 2014, the Concern has not only stopped any trade with the aggressor country, but launched import substitution program to replace Russian components. "Our vector is clear: rejection of Russian parts and their replacement by domestic ones. Cooperation with enterprises in almost every region of the country helps to cope with this task. Special state security forces will assess the plants that override interests of the state and continue to cooperate with the enemy"- said UOP representatives. In the framework of import substitution program, the Memorandum of Cooperation between the State Concern "UkrOboronProm" and Odessa Regional State Administration on cooperation expanding with Odessa region enterprises was signed on February 17. Cooperation will contribute to signing contracts worth over 140 million UAH in 2017. Today - within the framework of import substitution program –there are 20 memorandums with state administrations.
