UOP "ISKRA" ENHANCED ARMED FORCES OF UKRAINE HAVING TRANSFERED RADAR STATIONS 79K6 AND 35D6 TO THE MILITARY UKROBORONPROM SE “Scientific and Production Complex “Iskra” - in the presence of the President of Ukraine Petro Poroshenko - transferred radar stations, intended to control the airspace and to guide air defenses, to Ukrainian soldiers. "You have made the impossible – restored production in such a short period of time. In the occupied territories – where the production facilities remained – you saved the documentation, saved the experience. You accepted designers to your team. You’ve done everything to ensure that the state’s defense capability won’t weaken. Your contribution to the defense capability of the country is extremely high," said Petro Poroshenko and thanked the team for selfless work. One of the latest “Iskra” developments - 79K6 - already operated by the Armed Forces of Ukraine – is among the transferred radar stations. It is a 3-D surveillance radar, allowing to identify air targets at distances up to 400 km, to submit their coordinates to air defenses for immediate reaction and destruction of the enemy. A high mobility – allowing to deploy the system up to 30 minutes– is the main feature of 79K6. Also, the military received a 35D6 radar and 19Zh6, upgraded to 35D6M radar. These radars are intended for detection of targets at small and medium altitudes under the conditions of active and passive interference, providing coordinate and track data, as well as for working as a part of modern automated air defense systems and for target pointing for AA missile systems.

Petro Poroshenko said that "Supply of the Ukrainian Army is to be a priority and only then - military-technical exports". "First of all, we are to meet the needs of the Ukrainian Armed Forces, and so we allocate 5% of GDP to equip the Armed Forces, which has never been in the history of Ukraine," emphasized the President. He also noted that the funds of the returned $ 1.5 billion - stolen from the people of Ukraine by the previous government - are directed not only for equipping comfortable hostels for the military, but also for procurement of modern weapons, manufactured by the military-industrial complex of Ukraine. The President emphasized that development and launching of “our counter-battery stations, which, in their characteristics, are higher than those we offer in foreign markets" became possible due to priority of supporting the domestic military-industrial complex. The same applies to 3D radar stations. "This pearl of the military-industrial complex of Ukraine plays an extremely important role in ensuring defense capability of the state," said Petro Poroshenko about the SE “Scientific and Production Complex “Iskra”.

In the occupied territories - where the production facilities remained - you saved the documentation, saved the experience. You accepted designers to your team. You’ve done everything to ensure that the state's defense capability won’t weaken. Your contribution to the defense capability of the country is extremely high," said Petro Poroshenko and thanked the team for selfless work.
UKROBORONPROM FILED A LAWSUIT ON PROTECTION OF BUSINESS REPUTATION AFTER “NOVOE VREMIA" PUBLICATION ON BMP-1AK PROCUREMENT
UKROBORONPROM FILED A LAWSUIT ON PROTECTION OF BUSINESS REPUTATION AFTER “NOVOE VREMIA" PUBLICATION ON BMP-1AK PROCUREMENT SC "Ukroboronprom" filed a lawsuit on the protection of honor, dignity and business reputation after publication of false information by "Novoe Vremia" ("New Time") in April 2018 on BMP-1AK procurement in the framework of MTC with Poland. The lawsuit is filed in the Podilsky District Court of Kyiv on June 13. Respondents are the author of the publication – journalist Ivan Verstiuk and "Publishing House of Media-DK" Ltd., issuing "Novoe Vremia". The State Concern requires publication of the refutation of inaccurate information in the publication. There is no claim for material compensation. The publication discredits the business reputation of UKROBORONPROM and its foreign partners. It jeopardizes an uncompleted contract for BMP-1 supply for the Armed Forces of Ukraine, as well as planned procurement of arms in the EU countries. UKROBORONPROM, as before, is open to cooperation with media and supports principles of responsible, objective journalism. That is why our principled position is to restore the business reputation of the State Concern and to refute the false and unreasonable accusations.  
UKROBORONPROM WILL TRANSFER MANAGEMENT OF 30 ENTERPRISES TO THE STATE PROPERTY FUND OF UKRAINE
UKROBORONPROM WILL TRANSFER MANAGEMENT OF 30 ENTERPRISES TO THE STATE PROPERTY FUND OF UKRAINE UKROBORONPROM (UOP) Supervisory Board supported the proposal of UOP management to transfer the management of some enterprises participants to the State Property Fund of Ukraine (SPFU). Such a decision was made during the meeting of the leadership and the Supervisory Board of the SC "Ukroboronprom" with representatives of the Independent Defense Anti-Corruption Committee (NAKO). About 30 UOP enterprises that have no active production cycle, are not involved in the production of military products or strategic tasks in the field of defense. "Based on the analysis of the activities of UOP enterprises-participants, a group of enterprises –specializing in the manufacture of civilian products – is distinguished. These UOP enterprises are not involved in the production of weapons and military equipment. It would be logical to transfer such enterprises to the management of the State Property Fund, which has more effective mechanisms for their financial recovery, or for privatization," said Pavlo Bukin, UKROBORONPROM Director General. In turn, UOP Supervisory Board supported such a proposal and considers it to be rational. In the opinion of the Chairman of the Supervisory Board, Mykhailo Zghurovskyi, the transfer of individual UOP enterprises to SPFU management will allow them to concentrate on civil production and be effective outside the defense industry. In addition, an important step in UOP reform is structural reorganization of the State Concern management, to be completed by July 3, 2018 and corporatization of its enterprises-participants. It is expected that investments into enterprises will increase their production capacity. At the same time, UKROBORONPROM representatives emphasize the importance of production localization in the territory of Ukraine. The meeting participants also discussed issues related to the newly formed clusters - groups of enterprises, with similar specialization. At the moment, five clusters are created: aviation, armored vehicles, shipbuilding, radar and precision weapons clusters. UKROBORONPROM representatives believe that clusters will strengthen coordination of work of individual enterprises, allowing those to use their technological capabilities and resources more effectively, to perform complex tasks on production, modernization and repair of armament and military equipment.
