Anthony Tether – appointed Supervisory Board member on UKROBORONPROM’s initiative – would promote UOP transparency. This was stated by President of Ukraine Petro Poroshenko during the appointment of the new Director General of the State Concern – Pavlo Bukin.
"This is a symbol of effective cooperation between Ukrainian and American partners," emphasized Petro Poroshenko.
It should be noted that Anthony Tether had already served for a year and a half as adviser to Roman Romanov on long-term development of the SC “Ukroboronprom”. He helps in implementing the UOP development strategy, implementation of reforms, corporatization, and international audit. The ex-head of DARPA contributed to strengthening UOP’s export potential and investment development. Under his guidance, the State General Advanced Research and Development Agency (GARDA, the prototype of American DARPA) was created.
“5 years ago nobody could imagine an American in the Supervisory Board – the adytum of secret to which nobody was allowed. It is a nightmare of the first department of the KGB. Today, we are making very decisive changes,” noted the President of Ukraine.
In turn, Anthony Tether thanked for the high confidence and opportunity to work together with Ukrainian partners, expressing conviction in the successful development of many projects of the defense complex of Ukraine.
